Introducing the Vipers!

We’d like to introduce you to the newest members of ToRD. They updated their look last year, and this year they’ve got a new name to go with it. No longer are our rookies going by the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad. They’ve animorphed into a deadly predator, and are ready to sink their fangs into this coming season – so let us know if you’ve got what it takes to take them on.

The D-VAS are now the Toronto Vipers! Does your rookie team have what it takes to take on the Vipers? Please contact interleague@torontorollerderby.com.

2017 Home Team Drafts now complete!

(Stay tuned for schedule and ticket info coming soon!)

Transfer skaters are those that moved from one home team to another in this off-season; Returning skaters are those that had previously left their home team (and in both case, ToRD) but have returned to their original home teams. The rest of our draftees have either gotten the call from their previous home on the D-VAS, or are new ToRD members who have transferred here from other leagues. Congratulations to all skaters, and ToRD fans – stay tuned for information about Season 11 coming soon!

Fresh Meat Starts August 7!

ToRD Fresh Meat join us rookie skaters

Our 2016 season has come to an end! Want to get in on Season 11 for 2017? Sign up for our Fresh Meat program!

    Toronto Roller Derby will be starting our next Fresh Meat Program on Sunday August 7th at 1:30pm at the Downsview Bunker. This is a program that will take you from whatever your current level is to being ready to play in games!
    We will be hosting a Meat ‘n Greet at the Bunker on Monday July 18 at 7pm to answer all your questions – it will be in two parts:
    1) a chance to watch derby and have people in the community explain to you how it works, answer any questions you have
    2) a presentation about the program, what to expect and what’s involved – we will also have a vendor on site to answer questions/sell derby gear. You can also send us an email at freshmeat@torontorollerderby.com to find out more about this year’s program!
