Do you know any women who can ice skate, roller skate, or inline skate?

Do you know any women who can ice skate, roller skate, or inline skate?
We want to start a Roller Derby league (ideally based in Zurich, but flexible) and need players who want to be a part of something new and exciting in Switzerland.

We want to set up a league much like Stuttgart and many other European cities already have... www.rollergirlz.de

We're looking for girls aged 18-whatever who want to be part of a team and part of learning a new team sport with a very cool group of women. This is a fun and full contact sport that we can all learn and share experiences together. The closest league to us right now is the Stuttgart Valley Rollergirlz, and they started much like this a couple years ago.

Questions? Good!

I've never been on a team before. Is this for me? Probably... lots of girls have never been on a team until they join derby.

How is this sport different? Attitude, Teamwork, Fun. We take on new names on the track, form closesly bonded teams, wear flashy uniforms, and then we sell tickets and play in front of a crowd of hundreds of cheering spectators. Anything we make goes directly back into training expenses.

What is Roller Derby, anyways? Check out our sister league at www.rollergirlz.de or google (or youtube or wikipedia) "Roller Derby".

Does anyone REALLY play this? In July the first European tournament will be held with 12 teams in attendance. In Canada and the USA there are hundreds of teams.

What kind of people play this sport? All ages and professions and fitness levels can find a place here... Roller Derby attracts a very diverse group and binds them together like no other sport.

Is this a real sport? Are there rules? Yes and absolutely yes.
Check out the 400 league strong Women's Flat Track Derby Association. http://www.wftda.com/

This sport looks hard! Do I need to be super fit or be a super skater? No. Just show up and we'll share skills with one another and learn and get fit together.

Looks like fun, but I'm not a girl. Can men play? No - this is an all-female sport. Men sometimes choose to become involved as referees, coaches, trainers, etc...

If interested simply in learning more, contact us (Swiss Army Wife and Crash Test Ref) or message one of us using our facebook site...


or E-mail us...

See you soon,

Crash Test Ref & Swiss Army Wife
