The First ever Younger Games junior roller derby tournament took place on the weekend and what an action packed day it was.
These dedicated young skaters showed some amazing athletic skills. If anyone thinks junior derby isn’t exciting to watch you having been watching the wrong games! Saturday’s games had all the thrills & spills of a senior game and some skaters I can see as future Team NZ players.
Results for the 3 games were;
Game 1: Guns N Roses 328 – Red Devils 120
Game 2: Hell Razors 244 – Guns N Roses 68
Game 3: Hell Razors 353 – Red Devils 74

A big thanks to Pirate City Rollers for hosting us
Our juniors are now counting down the days to The Younger Games – the first junior roller derby tournament to be held in New Zealand. 7th September is the date so put it in your diary now it, it is going to be a fantastic day!!
Our juniors are starting to get very excited about “The Younger Game”, the first junior roller derby tournament in New Zealand being held at Kensington Stadium on 7th September.
Junior Derby is now starting to become popular in New Zealand with many leagues now discovering the benefits of having junior teams in their leagues.
Our Hell Razors have been waiting a long time for this. In their history of game playing, they have only lost one game, against Hellmilton Roller Ghouls’ Monstars.
Their goal in this tournament is to stay the top Junior Roller Derby team in New Zealand.
