What a game! The final score was 99-89 in favor of Silicon Valley’s MicroChicks in the March 11th bout against Resurrection Roller Girls’ Fallin’ Angels in Rohnert Park, California. SVRG wants to thank our gracious hosts for a great time! To remember the event, the Resurrection team gave all of our girls dog tags stamped with both team names.
Unleasha Moore (one of the Derby 2.0 coaches) reported, “The skaters did a fantastic job of working together and communicating in the pack. Plus the jammers killed it for sure! There were so many lead changes and all the girls who jammed gave it their all!” Derby 2.0 coaches Belle Wringer, Mongoose, and Unleasha Moore helped the team prepare for their victory and are looking forward to the rest of the season.
Interested in Joining Derby 2.0?
Derby 2.0, SVRG’s junior derby league, is for girls aged 7-17, and is divided into two teams. The MicroChicks (skaters aged 7-10) learn the basics of derby without hitting; blocking is strictly positional. The Web Bruisers (ages 11-17) engage in full-contact play once the coaches feel they’re ready. Skaters 18 and older can try out for the adult league. Derby 2.0 coach Unleasha Moore was the first skater to graduate from junior derby to roster for the KillaBytes and is happy to be mentoring her former teammates in her new role.
Derby 2.0 has grown since the first practice in June of 2010, to a full roster of 30 skaters. Many of the original girls are still skating with the league and hope to follow in Unleasha’s tracks.
