Our 2015 Highlights

As 2015 drew to a close, and we welcomed in a New Year, Western Sydney Rollers took a moment to recognise the achievements and commitment of our skaters, refs, volunteers and NSOs, and thank everyone for another wonderful year.

The Boutlaws had a great year, bringing together a new team, which ended the year strongly with their performance at the Eastern Region Roller Derby Championships. The team has worked so hard this year, and have improved as skaters and as a team, doing their coaches and their league proud. We look forward to seeing what they can do in 2016!

Intraleague competition

Our Intraleague competition was once again fierce, with three brand new teams vying for the title. The Riot Squad, The B52 Bombshells, and The Blackheart Brawlers, brought the action all year, enjoying friendly competition and camaraderie until the end. The Blackheart Brawlers took the title at the end of the day, but not without a strong fight from the B52 Bombshells, who were hot on their tails. 2016 will be an intense intraleague season, so we recommend you’re trackside for all the action.

Celebrating in style

To round out the year, and celebrate our achievements in style, the members of Wester Sydney Rollers gathered together in December for the Annual Christmas Party and Awards night. Singing, Dancing, and the selfie competition to end all selfie competitions, made for a wonderful evening, full of laughter and happy faces. Members of the league voted for their moved valued players and volunteers, recognising achievement in a number of areas. We would like to congratulate the following skaters on their achievements in 2015.
