We are heading to the Dustbowl Tournament in Bakersfield, CA 

and we need YOUR HELP!

Charlotte Roller Girls has now been hitting the track hard for over 10 years. If you didn't know already, this sport is INTENSE! Each season we set goals for ourselves as a league and we work hard to determine what will help us not just sustain, but thrive in these goals. One of our biggest and most perpetual goals is to improve our level of game play, so that we can bring you amazing home bouts every season. Playing in the Dustbowl Tournament is guaranteed to improve CLTRG for seasons to come. 

Why The Dustbowl?

TL;DR: It is perfect for where our league currently is in ranking and skillset. 

CLTRG had an amazing season in 2016 and found ourselves ranked in 142 place among all of the 445 WFTDA (Women's Flat Track Derby Association) leagues. This leaves us in a really good position for the coming season, but also with a lot of work to determine which teams we should play. We have to play appropriately challenging and ranking leagues in consideration to our own. Ideally we will play against other teams which will help us become better players in the most competitive way, but also ideally improve our rankings in the end.

 

This is a delicate balance. Additionally, we sought to send our travel team to play in a tournament this year. So we crunched the numbers of the tournaments that were happening around the country and found ourselves perfectly fitting into the Dustbowl! We are so excited for this opportunity and we know that our team is going to grow in leaps and bounds through this experience.
