It's time to pull those roller skates out of the closet, dust 'em off and lace 'em up as Lawton's own, the 580 Roller Girls will be holding a recruitment event tonight (Feb 7th) at Laugh Out Loud Family Fun Center, located at 6728 Quanah Parker Trailway.

It will all get started with a meet and greet with the team at 7:00 p.m. If you are interested in joining the roller derby, no experience is necessary; the 580 Roller Girls will teach you to skate like a pro, as well as all you'll need to know play the game!

In existence since 2010, the Roller Girls are Lawton's first flat track derby squad, and 2016 league champions! The current squad consists of Lawton women from all walks of life. From single moms, to active duty soldiers and veterans, from home makers to entrepreneurs, college students, and more! Everyone is welcome.

There’s no need for equipment at the initial meeting, it's all about meeting the coaches,  staff and your chance to see the 580 Roller Girls in action. The only regulation tonight is that you must be 18 years or older to join the Roller Girls.
