Kent Roller Girls was formed in 2010, with their first practice taking place in July of that year. The league is currently the only one in the county of Kent and trainings are spread across the county to try to incorporate as many interested people as possible. We are a ‘by the skaters for the skaters’ league as most in the UK are, and we encourage all our members to be involved with molding the league and helping it to achieve its short and long term goals.
The league has steadily grown over the last year with the help of Team Captain Demi Lition’s expertise and knowledge gained during her time as a Leeds Roller Doll. The league also received huge support from the established derby community, something KRG is eternally grateful for, the help received allowed us to grow as a team and feel a part of the family that is UK derby.
KRG had their first public bout in September of 2011 hosted by the Seaside Sirens, this bout signified the end goal of all the leagues hard work over its first year, a difficult time for all leagues. Many KRG skaters have also been given the opportunity to guest skate with other leagues, which has been a great learning experience.
The league currently has 1 travel team but are hoping to form an A and a B team towards the end of 2012 thanks to our new intake. KRG is currently half way through our first ‘fresh meat’ program; which has proven to be hugely popular for both prospective players and referees.
We are hugely honored to become members of the UKRDA and we hope to work with them and the league members to promote Roller Derby across the United Kingdom. We also hope to support all leagues across the UK in the same way that we have been supported.
