I don't know about you but I can definitely feel spring in the air. What better way to celebrate the change in season and shake off those winter blues than to spring into something new. So come on, what are you waiting for? Why not spring, or should I say skate in roller derby.
Junior derby is an activity for youngsters of all bodies types and all fitness level. It's a great way to increase core strength, build confidence and problem solve in a fun, clean safe environment. It also helps develop team work skills, aids strategic thinking, whilst at the same time also making friends and learning a new hobby. In fact here at Sheffield Steel Junior Roller HQ we very much view junior derby as the gateway activity into an active, a more rounded, enriched and healthier lifestyle. In fact, if you haven't already we encourage you to read our post about the types of youngster that suit roller derby. But hey you don't need to take our word for it. Why not take the advice of Sport England, who through South Yorkshire Sports, have chosen to fund Sheffield Steel Junior Rollers league to deliver on its core fundings aims for Sportivate pot of funding.
