Announcing our 2014 Home Season Schedule

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2014

HCRG is set to dazzle Hamilton yet again with another full-season of full-contact competitive derby action. We kick off our ninth year with a double header on Saturday, May 3 at Dave Andreychuk Arena, as both the Eh! Team and the Harlots take on teams from the Fort Wayne Derby Girls of Indiana, USA.

HCRG keeps on rolling with double headers in June and July, and will host its first ever tournament in August. The Maple Stir-Up invitational will be the first tournament to feature an all-Canadian, all-WFTDA line-up, consisting of 6 teams and 5 bouts in 1 full day of action.

HCRG is coming off its most successful season yet, with winning records for both the Eh! Team and Harlots. The chartered Eh! Team picked up five sanctioned victories and rose a phenomenal 49 spots up the rankings of WFTDA leagues worldwide to finish 2013 at #83.

A bit about Jackie:
I have been around the derby scene since 2005. I began my derby career as a board chair and All Star captain for Grand Raggidy Roller People in Grand Rapids MI. After five hard-hitting seasons with GRRG, I made a transfer to Chicago’s Windy City Rollers. Since my arrival in the Windy City, I have nabbed awards for fan favorite, best pivot for my intraleague team The Fury, best league pivot, All Stars MVP and league MVP. In 2011, I was co-captain for the All Stars and was elected to the WCR executive board.

I pretty much eat, sleep, and breathe derby, and have since I started. I’ve coached and instructed leagues from Toronto to Hawaii and most points in between. If there’s an opening on a multi-league team, I will fill it gladly. I have played on Team Awesome, Team Legit and the Vagine Regime in both banked and flat track bouts. On the rare occasion I’m not skating or coaching, you might just look over and notice me next to you supporting your league…no matter where you live! The derby world calls me “America’s Significant Other.”

I appeared as myself in the film “Whip It!”. In 2011, I was honored with the unique designation of being named a “Living Legend” at RollerCon and having a track dedicated in my name. I love derby, love being a member of Windy City, and am hungry for a WFTDA championship.
