I am really loving what Hit Squad is doing with their Art productions. The home team life is such a special thing in derby and Rat City's is especially legend. I was a HUGE Rat City fan back in the day so this gave the feels.

This really impacted me. Not only did I learn some things but it was a great wake up call to how inaccessible derby (and the world as a whole) can be.


MVP of the Week: Jacksonville for FB Live-streaming the Gotham/Jax game

Not only was a high-profile game but also I firmly believe the derbyverse needs access to all footage possible. That's a rant for another time but for real, even just FB-Living a game gives us something. Huge thank you to Jacksonville/ the specific person who filmed it and did all the work every time the feed dropped. You the MVP of the week <3 Here's the first half of the game:


Fundraiser Highlight: Help Twin Valleys Roller Derby Get to EXDC!

Twin Valleys Roller Derby is selling this cute AF shirts to raise funds for their trip to EXDC!

Twin Valleys Roller Derby (TVRD) was founded in 2017 as a fusion of Star City Roller Girls and New River Valley Roller Derby.  We're proud to represent southwest Virginia to our community and the derby community as strong, capable athletes.
We are so excited to be playing at the East Coast Derby Extravaganza (ECDX)in Philadelphia June 22-24, a first for TVRD!  Since all of our activities are paid for by our league members, we're hoping this fundraiser will make it more affordable for everyone to be able to participate.  Skating is expensive!  Trips are expensive!  Skating and trips are expensive!
Help us skate and get a sweet shirt.  Everyone wins!
