Closing of the Season
Gem City had a wonderful year. This is was our first year back as a WFTDA League and the rankings have been posted! Gem City Purple Reign ranked 170 in the world with 3 Wins and 2 Losses in our sanctioned bouts. There have been some major changes and winds are blowing in our favor. This off season your gems will be training hard and stepping up their game. Keep an eye on these ladies, as they will certainly start climbing the charts.
On top of the Rankings being posted, our season ended with a great bootcamp. There are several new skaters and Referees for the upcoming year; do not forget about those lovely ladies that joined us in July. Many of the skaters have passed off on their basics and are working on fine tuning their skills to make roster for next season.
Finally, we would like to thank all of our Fans, Referees, NSOs and volunteers that helped us make this season great. We cannot make this happen without you and we appreciate everything you guys do for us.
See you all next Season!
We Are Gem City!
Do you Derby?
Gem City Rollergirls is proud to announce that our Off Season Boot Camp is right around the corner! Starting Sunday October 12th we will be opening our doors to women 18yrs + of all skating levels interested in taking the track and learning to become a rollergirl.
Playing not really your thing? Want to wear those stripes? Or become a NSO (Non-Skating Official)? We are also accepting Men and Women to join our Officiating crew. We will train you from top to bottom. Teach you the in and outs of the game, and help you master the skills you need on and off skates to become a Skater, Referee or NSO.
Gem City is working with the Artemis Center to bring awareness and to help support victims of domestic violence. This is a cause that is very near and dear to all of our hearts at Gem City. Whether you know someone personally or not who has been a victim of domestic violence we ask you to help us support this group. September 19th is our last home bout so why not make it a full Gem City Day by signing up and participating in Artemis Gone Riding earlier in the day the continue to show your support by coming to the game.
Gem City will be accepting donations of nonperishable food items, kid snacks, and personal items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, and the likes (if you want to know if something is okay feel free to email us and ask!) for the Artemis Center at the doors. Bring a donation and we will take two dollars off entry to the game. We will also be hosting a 50/50 raffle during the game where half of the proceeds will be going towards the Artemis Center.
