The Kokeshi Roller Dolls have big plans for 2017! We are currently honing our skills for the Tomodachi Tournament, taking place March 24-26 at Okinawa Comprehensive Park. We will be playing against Fairbanks Roller Girls of Alaska, Pacific Roller Derby of Hawaii, and Tokyo Roller Girls and Devil Dog Derby Dames from Japan. In June, we are heading to Kaiserslautern, Germany to play a series of bouts hosted by the Roller Girls of the Apocalypse. In October, it's off to the Big Island in Hawaii for the final tournament of the year. We hope to gain experience and rankings as we compete across the world!
Meanwhile, our new skaters are training hard to make it onto the travel team. Luckily, they are learning from the best on the island! Our experienced skaters have been on Division 1 and 2 leagues in the United States and Europe, and can get our Baby Dolls skating safely and effectively in no time. Best of luck to passing the MST (Minimum Skills Test), Baby Dolls!
