Petition Tag - roller derby
The Bay Rollers roller derby league have been together for almost two years now. We are a not-for-profit sporting association with 50 members and counting! We promote a safe and supportive environment for women of all ages and fitness levels to participate in roller derby - the fastest growing women's sport in the world!
Unfortunately there is a common misperception that roller skating causes damage and extra wear on timber flooring within sports stadiums and centres.
This wrong assumption has been an issue for us gaining access to suitable venues for both trainings and competitions.
By signing this petition, you can help The Bay Rollers gain access to the new Sports Complex in Byron Bay.
Currently the Kokeshi Roller Dolls, Okinwa's first women's flat-track roller derby team, practices on Kadena Airbase in Okinawa, Japan in an outdoor location.
We desperately need to secure an indoor practice and bouting location in order to train year-round and prevent the weather from thwarting our bout schedule. However, it is possible that the 18th Force Support Services does not understand how important roller derby is to the morale and welfare of the players and fans.
We would like to illustrate the support for Okinawa's roller derby through the signing of this petition.
This is a chance for our derby voices to be heard! Let's get Women's Flat Track Roller Derby at the Olympics!
