Roller derby leagues and teams always have the coolest names but no other rolls off the tongue like the Terminal City Rollergirls (“TCRG”). The host Vancouver’s derby scene since 2006, TCRG will be opening its 6th season on Friday, April 6, 2012.
With over 60 members and 4 teams, Terminal City Rollergirls is a member of North America’s Women’s Flat Track Derby Association. Their season will run from April through to September.
TCRG is a 100% player-owned and operated league. This means each and every TCRG event has been conceived, orchestrated, and run exclusively by our members. The league is made up of a diverse group of women including everything from nurses to construction workers, graphic designers, television producers, teachers, stay-at-home moms, Downtown Eastside outreach workers, dental assistants, PhD students and aspiring rock stars. Dipping into this talent pool allows TCRG to operate as a successful and dynamic organization.
Opening day on April 6th will see a doubleheader at Kerrisdale Arena (starting at 5:00pm) with The Riot Girls vs The Bad Reputations followed by The Faster Pussycats vs Public Frenemy.
Tickets are available in advance online for $15 and $20 at the door. Children are $10, those 5 years old and younger get in free.
