London Rollergirls vs Dublin Roller Derby Double Header

View on Facebook

The 2018 Season is upon us! In our first game of the year we take on not one, but TWO Dublin teams.

First up, Batter C Power will be taking to the track to take on the B’s from Ireland’s capital city. Both of these teams will be looking to take home the win, in a game not to be missed.

Following hot on their wheels, the second game will watch our mighty Brawl Saints take on Dublin Roller Derby A’s. After stealing hearts across the world during their debut at D2 Champs, Dublin are making the trip to London to face off against our beastin’ B team.

As always, our bar will be stocked with delicious treats and alcoholic beverages for you to enjoy and there will be plenty of fun & games off the track too.

4:30pm: door opens
5:30pm: first game starts

Brawling needs a coaching team for the 2018 season!

This is a great opportunity to become an integral part of London Brawling, undefeated in Europe and ranked among top 10 WFTDA roller derby teams worldwide. We are looking for a maximum of four coaches to join the leadership team (made up of captains and coaches) who will share the responsibilities outlined below and aid brawling to achieve their 2018 goals.

The Leadership team is voted in by London Brawling skaters to support and lead the team to train and compete at a high level. Brawling Leadership is in turn supported by the entire Brawling roster and exists inside a league of ambitious, hardworking, and dedicated coaches and skaters.

The four coaching roles are focused on year-long team development; covering all aspects of team management and tactical development. This will include forming a dynamic game day bench staff of between two and four persons. Roles are flexible and can be adjusted to make best use of specific coach’s skills to get maximum benefit for the team. We need you and your skills!
