ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -

MedCity Mafia Roller Derby is looking for new recruits!

The team will be at the Crooked Pint Ale House for an evening of trivia and to answer any questions you may have about what it takes to be part of the MedCity Mafia. 

"Whoever's willing, if you've got a good attitude, if you're willing to try something new, if you're willing to fall down but get back up," said MedCity Mafia board member, Danielle Riehl. "As long as you've got a teachable spirit and you want to try that's the only thing we ask." 

There are no required skills to join the MedCity Mafia.

The members of the team will teach you all you need to know regardless of if you're a beginner or seasoned veteran. 

"We have a lot of different people on our team so it really doesn't matter what kind of person you are," said Riehl. "If you are someone who is a mom and you've got kids and they've got their hobbies and you want to get into your own sport, roller derby is great. If you want to get out some physical aggression and you're too cheap to pay for therapy come to roller derby! We'll take you in! And if you're just looking for something a little out of the ordinary roller derby is fun."

The recruitment event is for anyone, whether you know you want to join the team, or are just curious.

"It's a really good opportunity to connect with a team member so that if they do decide that they want to try roller derby there's already a familiar face waiting for them," said Riehl. 

Riehl reminds us that it's okay to be scared about trying roller derby. 

"If you're a little nervous to do something you should probably try it," said Riehl. "The more nervous you are the better the payout and roller derby is a really good payout."

One of the payouts is your own derby name. 

"My name is Spaztik Pepper and it's a little bit two fold. Spaztik comes from the fact that I have epilepsy and pepper is the fact that I'm completely obsessed with doctor pepper. It's just a fun way of express your personality. Everyone on the team gets one.

The MedCity mafia Roller Derby Crooked Pint Trivia Recruiting Event is Wednesday, August 30, 2017 from 7pm to 10pm.
