Blood and Thunder Magazine is proud to announce that it will be organizing the first Derby World Cup, to be hosted by Toronto Roller Derby on the weekend of December 1 - 4, 2011.
This is to be derby’s first serious, international competition where countries’ teams will not only vie for derby supremacy but learn from each other, as well. As the Cup is an independent event, skaters from all ilk are welcome to try-out. WFTDA, banked track, unaffiliated, you name it!
New Zealand has selected a coach, assistant coach, and manager, and tryouts have now been held in order to select skaters to represent NZ. We are currently in the process of applying for funding for uniforms, travels and other requirements.
Coach: Pieces of Hate
Assistant Coach: Fia Fasi Oe?
Manager: Elle Qaeda
Further information will be posted as it is available. If you have any questions, feel free to post them in the “Got a question for us?” section to the right, or send us an email at:
If you have missed out on trying out for the team but still want to be involved, feel free to send us an email and let us know, we will be needing helpers and refs for trials, practices and fundraising events.
