Recently, Troop 100 G has started focusing on acquiring merit badges more than ever. As new Scouts join and time goes on, it’s important to keep everyone interested in Scouting, and the girls in Troop 100 G know how to do just that. Requesting help from the Druid City Derby League, these Scouts are going to have the Roller Skating merit badge in no time!
The professional skaters from the Tuscaloosa Roller Derby made sure to provide everyone with the proper equipment, instruction, and support to create a safe environment to improve skating skills.
Everyone was a little wobbly starting off, but after learning some basic skate anatomy and simple stops, things began rolling along nicely (no pun intended).
After a couple hours of skating, the Scouts discovered just how difficult the activity truly is; that being said, they can’t wait to get back to it next week!
