This weekend our travel teams will be playing 2 double headers! One on Saturday and one on Sunday! Get your tickets!
How exciting! But wait, what exactly are the travel teams. Alumna skater Star Crash put together this handy dandy guide:
Travel teams are populated based on tryouts rather than a draft system. Only skaters who have passed the initial skills test and are members of our league are eligible to participate in these tryouts. Most of these skaters are also members of one of the four home teams listed above.
Burning River All-Stars
This is BRRG’s “A” travel team. They are our WFTDA-sanctioned team and primarily play in bouts against other WFTDA-sanctioned teams to count toward their national ranking. Their colors are blue and orange.
BRRG’s “B” travel team. These skaters often play other B teams in double-headers with the All-Stars. They also play other teams within the North Central region, but generally not ones that are WFTDA-sanctioned. Their colors are also blue and orange.
BRRG’s “C” team. This team is made up of rookies, Pyromaniacs and any additional skater that
may want to get some extra playing time. This team can change from bout to bout.
So, there you have it. Our travel teams have been doing quite well this year and may have the opportunity to travel to regional playoffs! Travelling can get quite expensive – and you, wonderful fans, can help keep them rolling! Our teams need food to fuel their brains and bodies, hotels to rest their tired legs, and well, let’s be honest, skates are not the best vehicle for travelling long distances. Please help our travel team skaters!
