The Paradise Roller Girls are looking for new members for the 2016 season.

Based out of East Hawai’i, the roller derby league plans to host a community recruitment night on Dec. 17.

Members of PRG will share information about the league and its various positions within the league, including skaters, referees, and non-skating officials.

“One of my favorite things about roller derby is that it doesn’t discriminate against anyone. Every kind of woman can play roller derby,” said Holly “Von Schlappenbitsch” Zimmerman, PRG Vice President.
