Starting Thursday, July 17 our fans and skaters will VOTE for their favorite coach by LIKING & SHARING the photo that you give us on facebook. And by the end of the day on Friday, July 18 we will name the 2 guest coaches!

– COACH YOUR TEAM ON GAME-DAY (Again, no experience required. This is for-fun – but, you may want to work on an inspirational speech to pump your team up.)

CONTEST: Win 2 tickets to our bout on April 21st! Fri, 13 Apr 2012 17:02:58 +0000 Do you want to win 2 tickets to our bout on Saturday, April 21st??

How do I enter?!
It’s simple: Make a sign for your favorite team or skater(s), and email a photo of it to by Tuesday, April 17th!

Whoa, that seems too easy, doesn’t it?
It sure does — but that’s why you need to be creative! The sign needs to be at least a poster-board size (approx. 22″x28″), but you can do BIGGER THAN THAT. Use glitter, bright colors, awesome hand-made artwork — anything that makes your sign NOTICEABLE and exciting!

Ok, and then what happens?
THEN, we will post all of the photos that fans have submitted here on our blog and we will announce a winner on Thursday! That lucky winner will get 2 free tickets to our bout next Saturday, April 21st!  That lucky person will then have 2 free tickets AND an awesome sign to bring to the bout!

So, what are you waiting for?? Start making some signs!

Official Rules:
Anyone age 13 and up can enter. Winner will receive two (2) general admission tickets to the April 21st bout; the tickets cannot be transferred to another date or person. One entry per person.  Signs must be family-friendly and be about the Texas Rollergirls, the four home teams, or Texas Rollergirls skaters. Signs that are not “family-friendly” (as determined by the Texas Rollergirls marketing committee) will not be eligible for the competition; the submitter will be notified via email and will have the opportunity to remake the sign and re-enter the competition. All photos must be submitted to by Tuesday, April 17th, 10pm central. All photos become property of the Texas Rollergirls for use on social media sites. Winners will be chosen by the Texas Rollergirls marketing committee and announced on our blog by Thursday, April 19th.

Celebrity whistleblower: YOU! Sun, 08 May 2011 14:45:25 +0000 The Texas Rollergirls have a tradition of highlighting members of the community by inviting a celebrity whistleblower to kick off our bout each month. Past whistleblowers include notables like Mayor Lee “Mayor Maynot” Leffingwell, Austin’s ESPN Radio Program Director Erin “Dead Air N” Hogan, and Paralympic Athlete Mark “Chairman Oww” Zupan.

This month, we want to honor our fans! We would not be where we are today without the undying support of our superfans, so we want to give YOU the opportunity to be our celebrity whistleblower for the bout on May 15th. Register for a chance to be the one who blows the starting whistle for our May bout!

The celebrity whistleblower kicks off the first jam of the bout at the end of the timer countdown. In addition to being the official start to a night full of hard-hitting action, you’ll also get two VIP seats so you can be up close and personal with your favorite rollergirls and your own derby name (lovingly crafted by the Texas Rollergirls Family) on a Texas Rollergirls t-shirt so you can show off your celebrity status to all your friends.

We will contact the winner by email no later than Friday, May 13th, 2011.
