COVID-19 has prevented us from practicing or competing for this past year, but we are excited to get up and running again for the 2021-22 season! Until we begin formal practices, we are gathering for informal weekly meet-ups at Pan Am Park, on Sunday evenings, weather permitting.
If you are 8-17 years old and interested in trying it out, you are invited to come and meet us! Based on interest and ability level, we can discuss next steps for future participation as we safely re-launch the team. Email us at TXJRDBOD@gmail.com for details.
Texas Junior Roller Derby is a 501c3 non-profit junior sports club, focused on building character and leadership through roller derby.
Our Mission is to provide young athletes aged 8 to 17 the opportunity to engage in the sport of roller derby.
Texas Junior Roller Derby practices are held at Millennium Youth Entertainment Complex on Wednesdays from 7:00pm to 9:00pm and Saturdays from 9:00am to 10:30am. Dates will vary based on facility availability and we occasionally have practices at other venues based on weather and practice schedules. Coaching staff currently includes PeaceWar, Christina Bacon Samborski, team captains, and guest coaches.
Texas Junior Roller Derby is a full contact youth sports club: new member skaters will be assessed for skating & derby skill, then placed into one of these skill levels:
Level 1 - Beginner. There is no contact playing at this level.
Level 2 - Intermediate OR Age 12 and younger. There is minimal contact at this level.
Level 3 - Advanced. This is full contact play, eligible for Travel Team.
Texas Junior Roller Derby competes in regulation (by the rules) and sanctioned (for rankings) bouts throughout the year. We also will provide information about mash-up bouts in the region.
New skaters to our youth sports club are invited to observe 2 practices and participate in off-skates warm-up's and team drills. We recommend getting to know us to see if Texas Junior Roller Derby is the league that is the right fit for you.
