Coastal Junior Roller Derby Inc.
New Sporting Equipment & First Aid Kit
Coastal Junior Roller Derby (CJRD) is an all inclusive sporting group for kids aged between 7-17. Not only do we teach the kids how to skate and how to play the awesome game of Roller Derby, we get them fit, it's fun and all about teamwork. No-one is left behind and the bond created between the kids is very special. We train hard and they all have fun learning new skills, we have even had kids representing State and Country in Junior Roller Derby, which is just phenomenal. The funds would help immensely with sporting equipment, upgrade the first aid kit and advertising - we are only a small not-for-profit group so any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Roller Derby is a very inclusive sport and provides an amazing supportive community. It is an amazing sport and so much is done by volunteers. In a year when I had the privilege of watching the Australian teams representing our country in Barcelona, the timing seems right to provide much needed funds to CJRC for these up and coming sportspeople.

My daughter loves derby with this group. Kids of mixed ages and mixed levels interact and bond in a way that breaks down social barriers usually associated with age and with different skill levels. The impact this inclusive and supportive culture has on the kids and teens is a powerful agent for social change. They compete, yet ego based competition is not the flavour. They challenge, but they know they real challenge is within the self. A little support for this club would go a looooong way.

An incredible bunch of people. Parents and skaters give so much so our league can continue to grow and allow us to play regularly with new teams. It's a fantastic sport.

I watch my granddaughter play roller derby from the other side of the world thanks to today’s technologies. It brings a lot of joy and camaraderie among the team and supporters. A fast and exhilarating game.

My daughter joined derby a few months back, here’s mom thinking oho, my babe is picking something completely out of her comfort zone. Well, comfort zone walls have dropped and she’s made so many changes over the past few months I’m seeing a happy, social girl coming out of her shell. Thank you roller derby foe the inclusive environment that you have created for all these children.
