derbyTickets Border City Brawlers was formed in the summer of 2010 by a group of fearless females determined to bring the athleticism and excitement of roller derby to the city we love. We are a volunteer organization, committed to building our league from the ground up, “by the skaters, for the skaters.” We offer women of all ages the opportunity to participate and contribute to the success of the league and our teams.

Our skaters are currently learning, practicing, training, and scrimmaging. We are always recruiting volunteers and if you want to be a derby girl or join our referee team, you can track our Fresh Meat intake details here.

We are also seeking sponsorship! Interest in roller derby is at an all time high, nationally and internationally, plus we need community support to make the league a success – it’s win-win! Please visit our sponsorship page for more information.

Brawlers take the win over G-sTARS

Members of the Border City Brawlers All Star Team are celebrating this weekend after a win over the G-sTARs All Star Team from Toronto.

On June 15, 2013, at the RDAC Eastern Regionals tournament, the G-sTARS took a 276-154 win over BCB. At a rematch later that year, the G-sTARS won 190-125 in a much closer match.

One year later, BCB was determined to get the win and on July 19, 2014, they worked together to get a 157-116 win over the G-sTARS.

Congrats to the MVPs from both teams:

Alternative Art Show Includes Brawlers

Windsor’s Alternative Arts & Culture Show, SKIN, takes place this weekend at the Walkerville Brewery. Tonight’s (June 27) event includes music, belly dancing, and a fashion show that includes two members of the Border City Brawlers as models. Tickets are $10.

So stop in at Walkerville Brewery (525 Argyle Rd., Windsor) tonight at 7pm for some alternative fun.

Don’t forget that the fun continues on Saturday at Adie Knox Arena for our next home game (it’s a double header…two games for the price of one!).

BCB Busy Weekend of Wins

It was a busy weekend for members of the Border City Brawlers.

Our All-Star Travel Team headed to Michigan to take on the Bath City Roller Girls. It was the last game of the season for Bath City and BCB came out with a 203-100 win.

MVPs of the game were Drop Dead Alice (BCB) and Rose Madder (BCRG) for the Jammers and Bloody White (BCB) and Miz Edge U Skater (BCRG) for the Blockers.

Also in Michigan, members of BCB joined in a mixed scrimmage with Trackula playing for the Mimes, and Rocket Horror playing for the Dolls. The Mimes won 187 to 148. Trackula took the MVP Jammer award, and Asian Zing from Brighton Roller Dollz took the MVP Blocker award.

Real Name: Victoria

When was your first live derby game? I had never actually watched modern roller derby before joining to train as a ref. I joined in March 2011 and my first game in stripes was a few months later with a private audience.

What derby name cracks you up? Peter Slamsbridge. And it always reminds me of this Rick Mercer clip (go to 7:00)

Who is your favourite superhero? Wonder Woman, of course!

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go first and why? I dream of going to Pitcairn Island in Tahiti. The 1935 movie, Mutiny on the Bounty, is one of my faves and that got me doing research on the true history and there’s an island of all of the descendants from the mutiny. You have to get permission to go to the island and it seems like a fascinating place.

If you could have only 3 electrical appliances in your house, what would they be and why? My kettle, a fridge for milk and beer, and a sandwich maker.

Rank the colors of the rainbow from best to worst and state why? Red, green, blue. Those are all that matter.

Real Name: Jay

When was your first live derby game? July 14 2012, reffed my first bout the same weekend one year later

What derby name cracks you up? Careless Whips-her

Who is your favourite superhero? Daredevil the man without fear

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go first and why? Your Mom’s… or Ireland… does your Mom live in Ireland?

If you could have only 3 electrical appliances in your house, what would they be and why? 1. My record player for my musac, 2. the fridge to keep my beer cold, 3. my beard trimmer to keep this thing golden

Rank the colors of the rainbow from best to worst and state why?

Green- for the emerald isles of my ancestor’s homeland
Red- for the maple leaf of my homeland
Blue- cause I’m a boy
Purple- cause it’s my favourite flavour of drank
Yellow- cause it’s mellow
Orange- because you don’t get to be a fruit and a colour, make up your damn mind Orange!!

Real Name: Garrett

When was your first live derby game? Back in 2012 (I think) a tournament the Sarnia team put on. I EMT’d it.

What derby name cracks you up? I saw a Jr. recently who’s name was “Captain M. Erika”. Either that, or “Chantal Krazyasschik” (bonus points for Canadian Content…the CRTC would be proud)

Who is your favourite superhero? Batman. Every other answer is invalid.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go first and why? Ireland

If you could have only 3 electrical appliances in your house, what would they be and why? TV, Microwave, Laptop. Cover all my bases.

Rank the colors of the rainbow from best to worst and state why. I have no response to this. I guess Green is number one. Indigo is last….indigo stinks.

Meet the Border Patrol!

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to meet the members of Border Patrol, the ref crew for Windsor’s Border City Brawlers.

In the next week we’ll be posting bios from the officials that keep everything…official.

We’d certainly love it if you read the rules  in the meantime (biting is NOT allowed), and don’t forget…always be nice to your officials (otherwise, you know, we may have to go all 5.16.21 on you)!
