I belong to a Brooksville sports team that's trying to get more players. We're a newish team in an unusual sport and I'm not sure how to get the word out about our team or explain what it is we do in a way that makes sense to people.
We play roller derby - you know, chicks in tights on skates running into each other. I love it because it's exhilarating, a great workout, and it lends itself to the varying abilities of skaters of all body types, ages, and experience. But people are thrown off by the perception that it's a dangerous, aggressive sport. Which isn't entirely untrue, but we're a mellow league and our goal is to have fun, not even to win or cause damage.
If anyone else has a similar problem, let's work together and talk about how to get exposure. Because satisfying hobbies make life better.
