Come see the final battle of the year at KRG’s 3rd Annual Solar System Smackdown THIS SATURDAY, August 15th! More than 30 skaters from 8 different leagues will be coming together for an all out galactic brawl to bring this season to a close.
Marking the conclusion of two years on the flat track, the Keweenaw Roller Girls bring to you this years challenger: Uranus United! This team is made up of all the sass Uranus can handle! Welcoming skaters from the Keweenaw Roller Girls, Mad Wreckin’ Dolls, Dead River Derby, Paper Valley Roller Girls, Oakland County Roller Derby and Chippewa Valley Roller Girls!
And the two time reining champs: Venus Vixens! Fielding skaters from as far away as Rockford, IL, this team is made up of some the finest skaters from the Keweenaw Roller Girls, Rockford Rage, Mad Wreckin’ Dolls, Paper Valley Roller Girls, Dead River Derby and Lansing Derby Vixens! Can this team kick Uranus and hold onto the title, or will they be cast out like Pluto?
We are incredibly excited and proud to announce that KRG has been accepted as an apprentice league to the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association. This means that we are now officially a member of the wider, international roller derby community (seriously, check out this list of new leagues, roller derby is taking over THE WORLD!). We’ll have access to lots of new resources that will help us up our game and bring you the best derby we can. Thank you so much to the skaters, volunteers, and fans who have made this all possible. We can’t wait to continue growing with you. Much derby love!
