Desert Dolls Roller Derby announces Junior League

Phoenix, Arizona – Entering its fourth season, Desert Dolls Roller Derby (DDRD) will be accepting juniors between the ages of 14 – 17 who are interested in playing the sport of roller derby.

Founded on the basis of empowering women, Desert Dolls Roller Derby wants to provide the same opportunity to young women who have the desire to skate and learn the sport of roller derby. Young women across the valley will have the chance to discover their inner super hero in a positive environment that develops teamwork, sisterhood, self-confidence and individuality.

Founders of DDRD Evol Starr and Ruebea Rockett are excited for the addition of juniors to the league. “I have witnessed many moments when a skater who seemed timid and unsure when they began, become empowered by the journey they have taken by joining and committing themselves to the sport and community of roller derby. What an amazing chapter in the story of a young woman’s life.” said Rockett. Starr states “DDRD has been wanting to start our JR program for a few years, and I’m ecstatic to announce that we can now offer training to the female youth in our community to learn how to play the fastest growing women’s sport, flat track roller derby. Teaching young woman not only how to play the sport but the value of teamwork, sportswomenship, and the benefits of exercise that will help them in every day aspects of their lives.”

Training will begin on September 4th at Castle Sports Club located at 11420 N 19th Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85029.
