Team Scotland is made up of the best skaters from all the leagues across the uk.  Selection is currently underway for the team that will go to the Blood and Thunder world cup, this December in Dallas, USA.  This is the 2nd world cup  to be held following the inaugural 2011 Blood and Thunder world cup in Toronto, Canada, where Team Scotland were placed 11th over all.

 

What Is Roller Derby

Roller derby is a predominantly female full contact sport played on quad roller skates.  Teams of 5 players skate on an oval track, where the designated ‘Jammer’ scores points by passing the ‘blockers’ of the opposing team.  A game is made up of 2 30 minute halves, that are further subdivided into jams, each jam is a maximum of 2 minutes in length with the lead jammer, that’s the 1st of the jammers to pass through the pack of blockers cleanly, having the option to call of the jam to prevent the other jammer from scoring points.

New Logo Announced

Thursday the 11th of June saw us announce our new logo to the world on Facebook.

After many months of deliberation and polls showcasing various themes and designs ( A unicorn had been the leading idea in the beggining), we finally picked one and sent off to be made into the snazzy form you now see here.
