Steph joined the Brawlers in our second full recruitment day in 2012 and is a familiar face on our awesome B team where she’s a budding jammer as well as a fantastic strategist and blocker. Steph is also a regular name on our A team charter and played her first A team game last weekend vs. Royal Windsor Rollergirls. Not bad to get a win in your first game, eh? Exciting!
When Steph’s not contributing to league awesomeness on skate, she is a member of the Brawlers’ Upper Management Committee (the Directors) making sure everything ticks over nicely day to day.
But that’s enough of us gushing about Steph. Here she is in her own words:
SUR5AL IS COMING TO WALES!
You know the concept; you’ve seen the awesomeness; some of you may even have got the t-shirt. Now take part on home turf!
On Saturday 26 July the Tiger Bay Brawlers will host the first Welsh Sur5al in Penarth, based on the awesome Sur5al format created by our friends at Windsor Rollergirls.
There’s an abundance of wicked teams in Wales so let’s celebrate that and get together for one awesome day of fast-paced, hard-hitting, all-female roller derby.
This will be a mixed level event and is open to all minimum skills passed female roller derby teams/skaters in Wales. Application forms are coming soon, and you’ll need to be ready to complete this with your team of 5 skaters, so you may want to get that organised now!
There is no limit to how many skaters each league can put forward to participate but there will only be 10 teams taking part on the day, allocated on a first come first served basis.
The cost will be £35 per person (including your Sur5al tshirt printed with your skater number and the Sur5al logo)
Please note, there will be no capacity for spectators at this event but we will endeavour to get some social media updates setup so your supporters can cheer you on remotely!
What are you waiting for? Save the date now and start putting together your kick-ass team for your chance to Sur5!
