About the Teams:
Rideau Valley Vixens, rose up the ranks in WFTDA standings last year to the top of division 2 and winning 2nd place at the championships in Nashville. their division. Having just broke in the Division 1 the Vixens are aiming to move up once again. They are currently placed 40th in WFTDA rankings.
New Skids on the Block have been a fluorescent force in Canadian Roller Derby for years. With an impressive roster and a new coach we’re excited to see the what the Skids can do in 2015. The Skids are currently placed 17th in WFTDA rankings.
The Slaughter Daughters are RVRG’s founding team and were consistently ranked number one in 2012 and 2013 on the Canadian Roller Derby Ranking for home teams. With the reshuffle of the league’s home team talent in 2014, SD kept a killer roster of fast jammers and impressive blockers. The other RVRG home teams had better watch their backs because SD is hungry for the Championship this year.
RVRG’s newest team, The Prime Sinisters is made up of some of the league’s finest veteran and rookie talent. These skaters know their way around a track. In 2014, the Prime Sinisters won the first ever RVRG Home Team Championship title and now, PS are ready to do what it takes to come out on top once again.
