Happy Holidays from the Texas Rollergirls! Sun, 21 Dec 2014 19:56:08 +0000

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!

Texas Rollergirls League Raffle Tue, 14 Aug 2012 18:24:24 +0000 Tickets are just $5 each & give you the chance to win one of TWO PRIZES!

Tickets will be available at the Playoffs (August 18th) and Championships (September 8th) bouts downtown at the Convention Center. Look for the table right by the door or flag down any Texas Rollergirl to get your tickets, and then … well, wait. Sorry! We’ll be drawing the winners at halftime of the first-place game on Championships day on September 8th.


The Grand Prize: Mellow Johnnys VIP Pack

A hipster bike and VIP season passes to Texas Rollergirls – it doesn’t get much more Austin than that! 

The grand prize winner of the raffle will receive this stunningly cool Bianchi Pista, thanks to our fantastic friends at Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop. You’ll turn many hipster heads as you cruise the streets of Austin this fall on ‘the bike that launched a thousand fixies’ — in other words, yes, the Pista was a fixie before it was cool. ‘Nuff said.

And to make it even more important – we’re adding two VIP Smack Pack Season Passes for the 2013 Texas Rollergirls season! You’ll be able to lock that bike up right outside the doors of the Convention Center and saunter right past the lines to your reserved trackside seating — perfect!

The grand prize bike was generously donated by the uber-cool Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop. Mellow Johnny’s is so cool that, if this bike doesn’t fit the winner, they’ll simply exchange it for a different in-stock model! If you trade for a lower-priced model, you won’t receive a cash credit, but if you want to upgrade, you can pay the difference.

(The total value of this prize is over $1,000!)

Second Prize: The Massage Envy, Best Buy Big Spender Prize

Go on a shopping spree and then relax with a massage! 
Our second raffle winner gets a gift card collection containing a Massage Envy gift certificate good for one massage, a $50 Best Buy gift card for all your electronic needs, $50 to spend at our Texas Rollergirls merch booth on game day or online AND a full set of limited edition prints from the 2012 Texas Rollergirls poster collection — signed by the poster girls themselves!
(The total value of this prize pack is over $150 — and you know that poster pack is priceless!)
