Happy Holidays from the Texas Rollergirls!





Texas Rollergirls would like to wish you happy holidays and thank you for your part in making our 2014 season amazing! We moved into our new home, the practice facility we lovingly call, “The Bloodshed.” The Bloodshed has brought together all of our programs under one roof and has been critical in our continued innovation in roller derby, none of which would have been possible without your generous support.

Additional 2014 Highlights:
We are excited to announce the introduction of the Texas Rollergirls Junior All-Stars this year! These young women, aged 8-17, are mentored and trained by our world-renowned All-Star travel team, the Texecutioners, who are ranked 5th in the world.

Our travel B-team, the Firing Squad, finished an undefeated season (5-0), competing in a tournament and games across the U.S.

The 2nd Roller Derby World Cup was recently held in Dallas, Texas, where ten of our skaters competed representing various countries:

Team Canada: Sarah Hipel
Team Greece: Bullet Sucker, Molotov M. Pale, SideShow Ho
Team Norway: Kategory 5
Team South Africa: Booty Queen
Team USA: Fifi Nomenon, Polly Gone, Smarty Pants, Trauma

Along with competing, the Texas Rollergirls hosted and trained hundreds of international skaters, as well as a handful of leagues, hailing from South Africa, The Netherlands, Colombia, France, Argentina, Greece, Norway, Ireland and Mexico.

The Texas Rollergirls are the founders of modern roller derby and are referred to as the “godmothers” to hundreds of leagues around the world. As we continue to lead the way in developing the sport, we are also committed to our community volunteering in programs, like Keep Austin Beautiful street clean-up. With your support we can continue these programs that touch so many lives both here at home and around the world.

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Texas Rollergirls are supported and operated by volunteers, which includes our skaters, referees, non-skating officials, fans, parents, children, and you!

We would greatly appreciate your continued support to keep us rolling in 2015!
