Cape Girardeau Roller Derby Team Changes Name, Now Recruiting Both Men and Women

PRESS RELEASE

 

The Cape Girardeau Roller Girls (CGRG)  recently wrapped up their 2015 home season and boast a winning record (5-3) for the year thus far.  Despite winding down the season, CGRG is still working hard to bring about big changes for 2016.  

One of the most exciting changes to the league is the recruitment of competitive male skaters!  While the skaters themselves have all been female in the past, men have been part of the team since its inception in 2010, taking on roles such as bench coach, training coach, referee, non-skating official, and announcer.  As roller derby continues to expand around the globe, it became clear that it was time to give Southeast Missouri men the option to join CGRG in one of the fastest growing sports in the world!

As the 2015 season draws to a close, CGRD looks forward to these big changes to the league.  In an effort to include all adults with an interest in skating, the team is proud to announce the removal of the gender requirement.  To better represent our identity as a league, the team also announces that it will transition to a new league name in 2016.  We would like to personally thank all our fans and volunteers for all their assistance this season, and we look forward to seeing you all again soon!

You can find us online using #WeAreCGRD or at www.capegirardeaurollergirls.com (until full transition to www.capegirardeaurollerderby.com),facebook.com/capegirardeaurollerderby, and Instagram.com/capegirardeaurollerderby.  For more information on joining the team, email This email address is being protected from spambots.
