Just thought we should give you all a quick update (apologies for the lack of communication recently).

Firstly, we have finalised our logo, as you can see! This will be available on T-shirts and badges that we will be selling to raise funds for insurance, hall hire and other set-up costs.

Secondly, we will be selling the merchandise at our "big sister" league's first home bout on November 17th. Details on the bout are below. If you've never seen roller derby before, I strongly recommend you come and check it out. We will be there to answer any questions you may have :-)

On Saturday 17th November, Fierce Valley Roller Girls' Parma Violents will play host to Wirral Whipiteres Roller Derby in For Whom the Skate Rolls!

The Peak, in Stirling will be the venue for our first home bout, and we are hoping to make the Metallica-themed day one to remember!

Tickets are priced at £7 on the door, or £5 in advance if you buy online from Brown Paper Tickets
http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/283751 Children are welcome to attend - under 14s go free when accompanied by an adult. Doors open at 2pm.

Thirdly, if you're wondering when we'll be starting then we're aiming for Feb/March 2013. We know this is a while away, but starting an Under-18s roller derby league has been more challenging than we first envisaged. We are the first league of its kind in Scotland, so have been doing this alone. We want to make sure that everything is set up properly before we start coaching your loved ones (some of our own kids will be joining too, so we understand the need to have all the i's dotted and t's crossed). Policies and constitutions are currently being written along with our training plans, and we hope to be able to furnish you with these at the start of 2013.

Fourthly, our coaches have all passed the WFTDA (Women's Flat Track Derby Association) mimimum standards for derby skaters and are all experienced rollerskaters. Our coaches are all enhanced PVG checked.

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to e-mail us or send us a message on Facebook.
