Next year the third Roller Derby World Cup will take place, and as previously, Sweden will be sending a Team to compete. Try outs were held earlier this year, where a couple of our players competed for a spot. We are now pleased to announce that three of our players have made the cut to train for the World Cup with Team Sweden. 

The players are (as pictured): Fia med Knuff, Mithra and Stoppless. The players are (as pictured): Fia med Knuff, Mithra and Stoppless.

The team is focusing on making use of every player's experiences and knowledge, as well as giving everyone a chance to develop according to their own abilities.

Rookies at their second training this season Rookies at their second training this season










In  Gothenburg Roller Derby August marks the start of the derby season and there’s a lot to
look forward to this fall.

 

Training has started and we are happy to be back from our derby vacation. The most exciting part of a new season are the entirely new faces that have joined us. Our rookies have had their first practices and though it might be a bit of a struggle sometimes they are having a lot of fun. We love to see our league grow and meet our future derby stars. Want to be one our new skaters next season? Sign up here and we’ll get in touch with you before our next try it.
 

It’s also a great time for our teams who are coming together and taking form for yet another season. The A-Team are seeing a few new faces on their roster as does the Badass Beavers. We are happy to see new minimum skills skaters develop and taking their places in the teams. The Badass Beavers will have their first open scrimmage of the season 25/9  – you don’t want to miss it.
