Hey there kids,
Meet Jerry Selter

His father Leo had was one of America’s great promoters and Jerry has followed in his footsteps since 1958, going from Roller Derby promoter (SF Bay Bombers) to television syndicator, to BASS tickets and Ticketmaster and on and on. He has many many many stories to tell…this is just one!

In the late 30’s and early 40’s Roller Derby grew in popularity and would play successfully in cities throughout the US with one major exception:  The Big Apple.

In fact, at one point there were four “units” (eight teams) on the road at the same time.  The track would be set up, and the two teams in each city would play each other 4 times per week for 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the size of the city and the popularity of the Derby in that town.  Generally, one team would represent that city (the “white shirts”), the other (the “red shirts”) another city.  It seemed as though nothing could stop the growth.  Then came Pearl Harbor.

Try Derby True Colors

The physical benefits of Roller Skating are apparent for youth and body image. Youth in sport, especially Roller Derby have an uncharacteristic relationship with their bodies where they put a great deal of significance in what their body can do for them and how it can convey their own personal goals of physical excellence. The nature of the Roller Derby community provides less blatant benefits as everyone who plays a role from skater, coach, admins and officials are unpaid volunteers who work for the sheer joy of promoting the growth of the sport they are passionate about. If you have heard that Roller Derby is a little different from other youth sports you are correct. The involvement with a group that shares the same love, passion and dedication changes the way you feel about and interact with others as well as yourself. Our mission is to empower youth, building their confidence so they can embrace their individualism in a fun, safe and respectful environment where skaters of all abilities can learn the sport of flat track roller derby.

NOW IS THE TIME to be a part of the fastest (and coolest) sport on 8 wheels. You have been asking and we delivered….TRY DERBY with GEJRDA. If you are all set to join and/or cannot join us this day you can register below. First practice for new skaters will be Tuesday January 14 6-7 pm at The Grindhouse 14420 112 St. Please direct inquiries to michd@live.ca
