Texas Rollergirls Rock-n-Rollerderby™ proudly presents the Texas Rollergirls Junior League, aka the Austin Derby Brats. The primary focus of the Texas Rollergirls Junior League is to develop character, confidence, leadership and social interaction in girls through sports – athletic performance is secondary to these ideals. The Austin Derby Brats intend to nurture and develop both skilled athletes and those who have not yet realized the champion inside of them. We value safety, good sportswomanship, and full participation – everyone gets to play!

Parents need not be present during practices or scrimmages but are welcome to stay and watch, if desired. Skaters must wear quad (not inline) roller skates and ALL protective equipment when participating in practices and scrimmages. Required protective equipment: helmet, wrist guards, elbow pads, knee pads, and mouth guard. Also, please bring a reusable water bottle to each practice and scrimmage.
Helmet and pads may be purchased at sporting good stores such as Academy, Sun & Ski Sports, or Medusa Skates. Inexpensive boil and bite mouth guards can be purchased at Academy.
Skates can be purchased locally from Playland Skate Center, Medusa Skates or online Rollergirl Skates.
Please make sure the equipment fits correctly – helmets should not shake or be tilted back on the head and chin strap should be tight; elbow and knee pads should cover the joints and not slip or fall down during movement; skates may be purchased a size or two larger to accommodate growth.
Feel free to email the Austin Derby Brats managers (email@example.com) for more information and recommendations on purchasing your skates and gear.
