Roller Derby Struggle Sandusky Rollergirls Logo

The 2016 Season Begins!

January 2016

It's time, once again, to kick off another season of roller derby in Sandusky. The girls are back to practice after two restful months, and ready to get back to work.

SRG has an exciting season ahead. Our first bout is March 12th in Dayton, Ohio, against the Violet Femmes of Gem City. With only a few short months until then, we're upping the intensity on our practices with the help of our new coach, Brian. He has tons of brand new drills for us to run and is quickly getting us into playing shape.

The season schedule is still being finalized, but we promise it will be exciting. Keep your eyes out for the finished schedule in the next couple of weeks. So far, we've already got some amazing events lined up. We're planning two invitationals this season which you aren't going to want to miss. Our annual Halloween Invitational will be on October 8th this year and we're adding one more on July 23rd for Christmas in July. If you want to see some of the best skaters in all of Ohio and surrounding states team up and compete, come out to our invitationals. They are a great time for spectators and skaters alike.

We also have a running open call for fresh meat this season. Anyone who is interested in joining our league is encouraged to come to our practices to participate or watch and get a feel for what will be in store for you. We hold practices every Monday and Thursday at the Erie County Fairgrounds from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. We practice in Building 1 from January to April, then the Multi-Purpose building starting in late April. Check out our page on Recruitment for more information.

We'll be holding fundraisers throughout the season, so be sure to be on the lookout for those. And we're always open to new sponsors - if you're interested, please head over to our Sponsorship page for more information. And keep an eye out for us at community events around Sandusky and Erie County.

We hope to make 2016 a great season for the Sandusky Rollergirls and our fans. We'll see you on the track!
