Every season after our newest skaters who have passed their skills test they participate in The Fresh and Furious, an annual tournament hosted by Hogtown Roller Derby in Toronto, ON. This tournament is open exclusively to skaters who have been skating less than a year.
This past July our newest skaters took on FnF along side six other skaters from Niagara Roller Derby & Lansing Derby Vixens and made it through four rounds of game play. Here are a few highlights from the tournament. Photos from Jammer Line:
