One of my favourite things about derby, apart from the usual mix of teamwork, training, random bruises and heckling, is a good old mixed scrimmage. Don’t get me wrong, I love scrimmaging with my own league too, but the chance to go play with people I don’t usually skate with is generally too good to [...]
Here I am again, at a fresh meat training session, this time watching the first new intake for 2013 pad-up and get their Skates on to train with our fab training team. As I look at the new group of Freshies I remember the feeling of excitement, nerves and anticipation that I felt at my [...]
IT was earmarked as the Seaside Siren Roller Girls’ biggest bout of the year, and our season finale Bucket and Slayed certainly didn’t disappoint!
After an eventful season which saw the our A-team The Coastbusters take on Wolverhampton Honour Rollers, Bristol Harbour Harlots, Sirens vs Sirens in Victory Rollers and Fighter Command, we decided to make [...]
THE Seaside Siren Roller Girls’ November bout Bucket and Slayed will be the place where dreams come true for one 10 year old fan as we are honoured to announce our very first mascot, Caitlyn Palmer.
Ask a child what they want to be when they’re older and the response you expect in 2012 usually include [...]
Another grey, wet, day in the UK as we bounced along the motorway and made our way to Eastbourne. I came along for the ride to watch and support my team who were participating in Eastbourne Extreme, a yearly event showcasing what Eastbourne has to offer all in terms of sports, using the epically beautiful [...]
It’s not actually the end, but I thought I’d try and make it sound dramatic!
We’ve had such great success with the fresh meat attendees that Tuesdays are continuing for our new skaters to really develop and get through those minimums.
This Tuesday was all about hitting, yep that’s right, more hitting! I didn’t realise until now [...]
IT was a clash of the naughty-gals in Southend-on-Sea this June as Essex’s very own Seaside Siren Roller Girls took on Bristol’s Roller Derby’s travel team, the Bristol Harbour Harlots in their fast paced second game of the season.
The Seaside Sirens A-team, The Coastbusters, fresh from their triumphant win over Wolverhampton Honour Rollers had a [...]
The Seaside Siren Roller Girls (SSRG) were established in November 2009 in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. After appearing as guest skaters in various mixed team bouts, they began bouting publicly as SSRG in April 2011.
The league has grown steadily over the past 2 ½ years from an initial group of six skaters to a membership of around [...]
Tuesday night was all about contact, ouchy, ouchy contact. But first we had to warm up! Oh yes, the warm up. Joy! After some planking, jumping, squatting lunging and mega ouching, we kitted up.
That was it for the easy stuff, now on to the hitting! It was so much fun I can’t even begin to [...]
This Tuesday at Fresh Meat was all about pairing up. After a whopping 22 min warm up, practising stops and fall, we went on to buddy up and try for our 25 in 5.
As I’ve been refereeing with the league for a few months, I’d had a little go at 10 in 1:35, which is [...]
