Starlettes

 

The Starlettes started in July 2008 as San Diego Roller Derby’s only team. The grass roots effort of just a handful of ladies and a couple of dedicated and skilled coaches launched the Starlettes as the cornerstone of San Diego Roller Derby! Together they trained hard, recruited fiercely and scheduled away games for their first season.  The Starlettes celebrated their first season undefeated! With the taste of victory and some additional teammates,  2010 looked very bright and promising.

2010 marked the first home season and an explosion of growth for San Diego Roller Derby!  SDRD grew from a small group that could barely fill a roster to an overwhelming amount of dedicated, competitive and talented skaters!  This enormous growth spurt gave birth to the idea of two teams for San Diego Roller Derby. During this historic season The Starlettes truly learned the meaning of blood, sweat and tears! They participated in their first tournament, Battle For The Coast, and competed in the “B bracket”.  Coming out of nowhere and some would say as the underdogs, the Starlettes won their bracket with a close victory over Rage City Rollergirls from Anchorage, Alaska.  The 2010 season ended with some incredible victories and some hard fought losses for the Starlettes.

With a hunger for more competition, the Starlettes added 3 tournaments to their 2011 schedule; Dustbowl Invitation, Battle for the Coast, and Spudtown Knockdown.  All three venues gave the Starlettes and coaches the valuable opportunity to test their skills against some of the best teams out there! In addition to tournaments, the Starlettes had a full 2011 season schedule of bouts both at home and away. They continued to work together and brought the season to a close with a 9-0 record!

The 2012 season is positioned to be San Diego Roller Derby’s best yet! The Starlettes have an experienced core group of ladies with impressive skills  on the roster.  There seems to be an excellent balance between blocker and jammer talent and drive combined with a team spirit like we have never seen. The Starlettes are excited for what this season holds!  With a jam packed home and away season in addition to several tournaments to look forward to, the SDRD Starlettes are ready to shine!
