#TEAMTUESDAY – GET TO KNOW SWSRDA
Today we’ll highlight two teams. Next, we have the Redneck Betties.
The Redneck Betties are the Senior Team of the SWSRDA. Started in August 2010, the South West Sask Roller Derby Association (SWSRDA), has been busy training, learning, and growing the league, as well as working with new leagues from other communities to mentor and support them. We are an all-female adult league, but do welcome boys onto our Junior Team. We welcome players of all levels, from surrounding areas, and with our Junior Team the Ra Ra Riots, we welcome players of almost all ages. Our junior and Senior Teams Head Coach is Vic Vega. Every season our Team is a mixture of skill levels from Rookies in their first year to Provincial level skaters. We do have a Fresh Meat program but believe in training together and working together on and off the track as much as possible as a league. Our diversity and adaptability has made us stronger and more sustainable as a league. SWSRDA skaters are also proud members of their community and partner with local, businesses and charities to enhance the opportunities for female athletes in our community. Our main focus is on athleticism and we work hard to be role models for female athletes in our league and community. While not a member of WFTDA, we do follow the WFTDA rules, regulations and standards for Benchmarking and playing. Our home is at the I-PLEX in Swift Current, Saskatchewan.

Today we’ll highlight two teams. Next, we have Oil City Derby Girls.
Oil City Roller Derby League is the first flat track derby league to be founded in Canada in 2005. Originally called Oil City Derby Girls, the legacy lives on as their ladies travel team has kept the original name for themselves.
The league re-branded in 2015 to reflect the evolving membership and to be inclusive to all genders. OCRD is the only co-ed league in the Edmonton area, and while they do feature women-only and men-only teams in addition to three co-ed teams, their practices are mixed gender and open to all. OCRD prides itself on their inclusiveness and they strive to make all members feel empowered, respected and supported.
