It's a very exciting time for junior roller derby. In recent months children aged 18 and under have played junior roller derby exhibition games at the MRDA (Men's Roller Derby Association) Championships, as England Juniors in Peterborough and wowed the crowds (and BBC viewers) at the Roller Derby World Cup in Manchester, but now it's their time to really shine!
There has never been a Team GB Junior Roller Derby team, and we've been invited by the JRDA (Junior Roller Derby Association) to pull together 23 of Great Britain's best junior skaters to represent Great Britain in the JRDA Junior World Cup in the USA in July.
We're dreaming big!
As you can imagine, getting 23 junior skaters to the USA and back is going to be ridiculously expensive. We need to raise £20,000 to get them to Philadelphia and we can't do it with without your help*.
Just imagine, at a future men's or women's roller derby world cup you could be watching them competing as adults, representing their countries...and you helped them on their way.
Go on, help our kids make history!
