ABOUT SOUTH SEA
Rolling since 2009….
South Sea Roller Derby is a well-established league providing a fun, supportive community in which to develop and excel in this fast-paced, exciting, full-contact sport.
Our membership of players, officials on and off skates, coaches, support staff and volunteers is diverse, coming together with a shared passion for roller derby.
With over 25 years combined coaching experience, South Sea Roller Derby offers split level training. You train with skaters at your skill level, creating a safe and enjoyable environment for all. All skaters start at Skate School, where they learn the basics (like stopping and falling) and move up to higher levels at their own pace. Game-play is modified at each level to ensure skaters are introduced to the rules and varying degrees of contact, only when they’re ready. You can take your time, meandering through the levels or you could decide that total derby domination is your goal.
We have a very reasonable monthly fee structure, with training twice a week and we understand life can get busy so offer a casual training option as well. We are members of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) and proud of our work with VicHealth’s This Girl Can Campaign.
We have two fully stocked travel teams:
READY TEAM FIGHT
The Sirens have their hearts set on winning their division at The Great Southern Slam Australasian tournament mid 2021. Originally an 18 month goal, they’ve overwritten the bumper stickers and have another 12 months to prepare thanks to the pandemic! When they return to training they’ll be working hard for another solid showing at the annual Rebellion tournament later in the year. Sirens are our WFTDA charter team and drafted from our pool of bouting skaters 2 to 3 times a year.
HEAR THE SOUTH SEA BANSHEES ROAR
The Banshees clock up some serious mileage travelling and playing regularly across Victoria in the Statewide Stampede Tournament. The team aims to end the year higher on the ladder than last year and jump at the chance to squeeze in some extra game play at any opportunity. When a skater reaches bouting level they become a member of this development team that focuses on fun and learning for up-and-coming players in a supportive environment.
