Introduction to Roller Derby Event on Jan 17th, 2017

posted Dec 5, 2016, 9:29 PM by Mandi Swanson

We will be starting off the 2017 season with an introductory class "What Is Roller Derby?". If you've ever wanted to get involved in roller derby here on Kauai we have lots of opportunities for you!
  • Be a referee on skates - we'll teach you how!
  • Help with our games - sell tickets, be an announcer, keep score or track the penalties
  • Skate with the team by becoming a Roller Girl
  • Do you own a business? Donate $ or products and we will advertise for you!...
If you are interested in any of these things, come to the Kapaa Hockey Rink on January 17th or email us at joingirr@gmail.com.

Hope to see you on the rink!

KPAL 1st Annual Hammerhead Sprint Triathlon & 5k Fun Run - Sunday, July 17, 2016

posted Jul 13, 2016, 12:32 PM by Mandi Swanson   [ updated Jul 13, 2016, 12:37 PM ]

GIRR will be skating in the 1st Annual KPAL 5k Fun Run. Don't worry, we're not eligible to place for 1st, 2nd, 3rd... prizes, since skating is an advantage over running.

This event raises money for KPD's KPAL program, which provides positive activities and role models for Kauai's youth. So, we encourage you to sign up at http://www.kauai.gov/KPAL/UpcomingEvents for KPAL's 5k Fun Run/Walk or the Triathlon (online registration). 

We hope to see you there!
