    Story

    Help Izzy get to the Junior Roller Derby World Cup

    This July Great Britain will send its first ever team to the Junior Roller Derby World Cup in America and Izzy Farkas, also known by her skater name of skeløbel, has been selected to play! This is a once in a lifetime chance to play at the very top level of the junior game and Izzy needs your help to get her there.

    We need to raise money for Izzy's flights and accommodation for the event near Philadelphia and you can help her to reach her goal. Anything you can give will help Izzy on her way to this amazing chance.

    Roller Derby is a very exciting game, originating in America and is a sport led by women, with lots of men’s and mixed junior teams too. Two teams battle to score points by having a designated player, the ‘Lead Jammer’, pass through the opposing team’s defence. It is a full-contact sport and the players wear substantial protection, as things can get rough! Juniors work safely through levels until they get to Level 3, which is the same standard as the adult team. Izzy is at Level 3 and plays in the defence position of blocker: she's great at 'holding the wall' and helping to stop the opposing team from scoring.

    I've been playing roller derby for over two years now - it's an amazing sport and I can't believe that I've got the opportunity to represent my country with the best junior teams in the world!

    The selectors have chosen seven Hereford junior players in total, all regulars with the Hereford Poison Berries, a team of under 18 girls and boys. In 2017, Izzy played with some of her Poison Berries team mates at the MRDA (Men's Roller Derby Association) Championships, for England Juniors in Peterborough and wowed the crowds (and BBC viewers) at the adult Roller Derby World Cup in Manchester.
