When are tryouts? We are aiming for tryouts for Spring 2022, but are cautiously keeping an eye on COVID rates and cases. Our priority right now is to return to play in the safest way possible.
Is there a rec league? Rec league is currently in the works. As we work towards coming back safely we are also working on providing skaters interested in joining Texas Rollergirls with digital resources that can provide more information on TXRG and roller derby. Keep an eye out for more information.
Where/When can I catch a game? We have our games on our Texas Rollergirls YouTube Channel and you can watch some of our Travel Team games on the WFTDA YouTube Channel as well. We also plan to post all our future games there. For fans that want to watch a game, we will also have a return to cheer plan.
Is it safe to skate because of COVID? It is safe to skate. As we see an increase of vaccinations across the US and in our state, this provides a safer way for us to return to play and practice. While we are returning to skate, we won’t be returning to full contact until it is completely safe.
How are we staying safe from COVID while skating? We are following the WFTDA Return to Roller Derby Guidelines.
What happens if COVID rates rise? As a WFTDA member league we are following the return to play guidelines and recommendations outlined by the WFTDA. Currently we are monitoring the COVID cases across the counties our skaters live, work and travel in, to ensure safety. If COVID rates begin to rise we will move to either cancel practices, or to non contact depending on where we are in the tiered guidelines outlined by the WFTDA.
What happens if a skater tests positive for COVID? If a skater tests positive for COVID, we will contact every league member that’s been in contact and all of them would ask for them to be tested and quarantined as well.
