Exciting news for all Roller Derby members

World Roller Games 2017

About 2 weeks ago, we wrote to all League Presidents with exciting news about the upcoming World Roller Games in Nanjing, China. We’ve also been posting quite a lot of news on RDA facebook.

FIRS have invited Skate Australia to send a women’s team to an Inter-Continental Tournament:

  • USA representing North America
  • Spain representing Europe
  • Japan representing Asia
  • Australia representing Oceania

The Inter-Continental Tournament will be held 1 -4 September 2017 during the World Roller Games in Nanjing.

FIRS is sending a trainer to Australia to run a FIRS rules technical clinic in Brisbane, 17 & 18 June and one in Darwin 20 & 21 June.

  • Anyone interested in being selected for the Australian team must attend one of these clinics.
  • Selections will be conducted during the clinics, and selected players will receive offers with cost estimates and travel dates.
  • We will be seeking acceptances with a deposit payment of around $200. This is because we have to commence visa applications and other processing required by Chinese organisers.

In addition, we have also advertised for a team manager and a coach for the team.

  • All expressions of interest must be emailed to admin@skateaustralia.org.au by 5pm 9/6/17 and providing your background and experience as a Roller derby team manager or coach

We know people are usually too modest to put their hand up, but hey you never know unless you give it a go  – you seriously could be part of the inaugural WRG Australian Women’s Roller Derby Team

If any of the above is of interest, see more information below:
