Photographers play a big role in roller derby. They catch our triumphs and our failures in amazing photos for us to relive those moments over and over. For skaters one of the best parts of the game is to see all the photos after a bout. This month Peninsula Roller Girls says thank you to the hard work and dedication of our photographers this year.
Peninsula Junior Derby was started in June 2014. Since then, they’ve gained skills, participated in exhibition bouts and inter-league scrimmages. 2016 is set to be a great year for these kids as our Junior Derby program grows.
