(WINDSOR, ON) – The Border City Brawlers women’s roller derby league is looking for the support of the community to keep their sport flourishing, in the city of Windsor. The Border City Brawlers are a non-profit, volunteer-run organization and they are currently homeless.
The Brawlers have launched a GoFundMe Campaign in order to assist with the high cost of facility rentals and to contribute to their goal of securing a future home space in which the athletes can practice and host games.
BCB was formed in 2010 and, for the past five years, has grown into a 3-tier competitive travel league. Soon BCB will be launching a junior roller derby program, growing the next generation of athletes.
BCB is currently recruiting skaters ages 12-17 and anyone interested in learning how to play roller derby should contact BCB by email.
With community support, the team can ensure that women and girls can train, play, and compete among the 300+ leagues as a part of the Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby Association (WFTDA). Help to make the dream a reality.
BCB is asking supporters to visit online to donate today.
The 2015 season opens April 25 with a double header as they take on Fergus Ontario`s Feims at Adie Knox Arena, in Windsor.
