You’ve been to a roller derby bout and thought, “I can do that.” You’re looking for a fun, new sport that puts you hip to hip with the coolest girls in town. You’ve always wanted to participate in a full contact sport and unleash your pent up aggression. Do you love to skate as much as we do? Sounds like you would be interested in waging war on wheels with the Classic City Rollergirls!

What a rollergirl needs
For more information or if you have any questions, please email our recruitment head of skate, and we’ll be sure to get them answered. We also have information available on our Web forum where you can talk to other members of the league and introduce yourself before coming to bootcamp!

The annual Green v. Black is a new tradition for the Classic City Rollergirls, but it is a tradition that both the rollergirls and their fans have quickly embraced. The Green v. Black is an opportunity for all of the Classic City Rollergirls to exhibit their glittering face paint, their new boutfits, and their finely-honed skills on the track. And, where would be a better venue to showcase the Classic City Rollergirls than their new home The Classic Center? Over 1,000 fans filled the Classic Center to experience the entire Classic City Rollergirls roster duke it out for the Parthenos, the Green v. Black trophy.
Team Green and Black quickly took the line, sizing each other up while waiting for the five-second warning from the Jam-Timer TrogDora the Jaminator. Five. Four. Three. Two. One! And, the girls dashed down the track, skating for position and perforating the pack with holes for their respective jammers. The first period started as a tug-a-war with neither Black nor Green maintaining a point lead for long. But, with power jam after power jam, the ladies in green quickly dominated the scoreboard. The halftime score put Green Team comfortably ahead of Black, 107 to 40. At the beginning of the second period, Team Black hit the track with a griping determination to end Green Team’s momentum. Blockers exchanged hit after hit as Jammers flew around the track with a ferocious rapidity; their wheels sang through the turns as they jockeyed for lead jammer. While Team Black closed the score gap, they continued to struggle with penalties, giving Green more power jam opportunities. As the period clock timed out, Green held their lead over Black, 188 to 112. On Green Team, Super Smash Fro was voted the MVP Blocker, Louis Strongarm the MVP Jammer. On Black Team, AmyTville earned the MVP Blocker plaque, Tina Slay the MVP Jammer. While Green Team secured the Parthenos, the Classic City Rollergirls experienced their first win in the Classic Center. Every rollergirl, Green and Black, skated together as one team during the victory lap. The fans cheered while the Classic City Rollergirls chanted:
“United we skate! Divided they fall! CCRG! CCRG! CCRG!”

The Classic City Rollergirls traveled to Savannah , Ga. for their last bout of the 2013 season. The Savannah Derby Devils put up a good fight and took the early lead into half time. CCRG rallied with a few impressive power jams and pushed ahead for the lead. Once on top, CCRG didn’t stop there! CCRG pulled together for win 165-124!
It was a bittersweet victory as we said goodbye to several skaters: Poke A. Dot, Mosh-ya Brady and Savoy Scuffle. We wish them all the best and have many fond memories of these amazing skaters.
