Roller Derby is taking over Waterloo next weekend!
“Tri City Roller Derby is thrilled to be hosting the inaugural Beaver Fever international invitational tournament”, says Suzanne Nally. Suzanne, skating under Suzy Slam, is the current TCRD league president.
TCRD is no stranger to hosting weekend long roller derby tournaments. Last year the league hosted the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) Divisional 2 Playoffs, hosting teams from the Canada, the United States and as far as Germany. “With all the excitement from hosting a divisional WFTDA playoff tournament last year we decided to keep the fun alive and do it all over again!” exclaimed Slam.
The first Beaver Fever tournament will be seeing roller derby action from over 4 WFTDA teams from the United States and Canada. Teams will be competing against each other in WFTDA sanctioned games throughout the weekend. The TCRD Travel Teams, composed of the Tri City Thunder (A Team) and Plan B (B Team) will be featured this weekend.
As well, local men’s roller derby teams and junior roller derby teams will be playing. “The sport of roller derby has grown to allow a much wider range of participants, and this is a wonderful opportunity to showcase just how accessible this sport is” comments Irim Siddiqui, TCRD league member and men’s roller derby coach.
Tri City Roller Derby is now in its 8th season and since its inception, has gained a large following of fans in the Tri Cities and surrounding area. “It’s wonderful to be so supported by our region and community to bring top notch roller derby games and athleticism to the area”, remarks Suzy Slam, “We hope that you can all join in the fun and catch the beaver fever!”
