In order to promote junior roller derby in the UK, the UKRDA has decided to make July Junior Roller Derby Month!
With two junior roller derby games taking place during July, we felt it was the perfect time to show off the next generation of skaters in our sport.
The first game features the Tiger Bay Brawlers junior team, the Tiger Bay Cubs, who will be playing at their home bout this Saturday (July 4). And there will be a fantastic junior expo game at Eastbourne Extreme on Saturday July 18.
Please go to these events and show your support for junior roller derby in the UK and the burgeoning talent that these young players are putting on display.
We also want to feature as many UK junior teams and skaters as possible throughout the month, so get in touch if you want your junior skaters featured.
And it gets even better!
As part of Junior Roller Derby Month, the UKRDA will be running a month-long competition for all junior skaters (regardless of their league affiliation) in the UK. And they could win some fantastic roller derby experiences for themselves and their team.
If you are at all interested in starting a junior team within your own league, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you run a juniors team and wish to be featured as part of Junior Roller Derby Month, please email email@example.com.
