So the Victorian/Tasmanian Roller Derby Tournament 2013 is in full throttle mode!
The Victorian Tasmanian Roller Derby tournament is an ambitious undertaking to have as many leagues as possible in both Victoria and Tasmania play in 2013, culminating in finals determining a champion league.
This is really really exciting news! The groupings have been announced and we have been placed in Group 2 alongside fellow Victorians Geelong Roller Derby League and Ballarat Roller Derby League and two Tasmanian leagues (both from Launceston) Van Dieman Rollers and Devil State Derby League.
We will be holding try outs in a few weeks time to rank our skaters that will form our Travel A team squad (the Death Stars) for the tournament this year. Within that top 20 skaters our Captains will be nominated and voted in and planning and training for this event will amp up TO THE EXTREME!
I am incredibly excited about this tournament this year. 16 leagues across these two states are getting involved. It fosters a greater derby relationship across all levels (regional leagues, experienced metro leagues, up-and-coming leagues) and more derby action for the fans out there.
Our team that will be formed for this has an exciting opportunity to put their skills to the test in our May the 4th bout with a visiting interstate league (details are being finalised… can’t mention any names just yet ;)) so that should give us something to really strive for to get our strategy and team work together before the Tournament starts towards the end of May
High-five to ALL OF THE DERBY!!!
