We love a goooooood bout. You know the kind. Where the blockers are all over each other from start to finish and the jammers have to claw for every single point they get. Where both teams are so evenly matched that it’s anyone’s guess who will come out on top. Where the skating and skill [...]
On a sunny Saturday afternoon in April, the Seaside Siren Zebras-in-Training headed to Oldham – home of the Rainy City Roller Girls – and boy did it live up to its name!
We arrived at our stable for the night under heavy grey clouds and could only expect there to be a downpour in a city [...]
The grey March sky hangs over The Ship pub in Leigh-on-Sea, and it’s quiet and empty – a stark contrast to the later plans that were about going to rock this boat (sorry)! By 1pm on the 30th the pub was filling with music-lovers congregating to see nine, mostly local, bands throughout the day. The [...]
Hello from the ‘New Girl’! For those that don’t know me yet I’m Bazooka Salt 186 (JL in the real world).
In November 2012 I made the scary jump to transfer from London Rollergirls Rec League to the Seaside Sirens. My long term partner is an Essex boy and despite living in Bromley I throw myself [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Welcome back suckers! So last week it was ten minutes in hell… This week? Suicide starts! I’m beginning to notice a theme…that theme seems to be based, mainly, around causing us poor, exhausted, hard working newbies the maximum amount of suffering! *attempts to lap up pity, notices distinct lack of pity, creates 500 metric tonnes [...]
