2017 Home Team Drafts now complete!

Toronto Roller Derby held its 2017 home team drafts in two stages, on August 12 and November 12, and our home teams are now replenished for Season 11, kicking off in January 2017. (Stay tuned for schedule and ticket info coming soon!) In addition to a fresh crop of rookie and transfer skaters making their way to our home teams, we also have a couple of returning skaters, plus some intraleague transfers. Here’s the lowdown on who went where in our two-stage draft.

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!

2016 Home Team Draft – part 1

On Sunday, August 16, Toronto Roller Derby held the first stage of the annual draft to replenish home team rosters. This draft announcement coincides with announcements of skaters who have transfered from one home team to another, as the decks get shuffled in advance of Season 10 in 2016. After the dust settled, here’s the newest members of our home teams:

Our 10th (!) Season doesn’t start until January 2016, but with part 1 of the home team draft out of the way, our home teams now have ample time to gel with their new teammates and rosters during the off season. There’s still plenty of things going on in the interim, though: Thursday August 20 is the Fresh Meat N Greet up at the Bunker, an opportunity for those interested in joining Toronto Roller Derby as skaters and officials to find out what it’s all about, in anticipation of our Fresh Meat program starting up this fall. Who knows – maybe next year YOUR name will be on this list!

And of course, this October, our All-Stars CN Power, are heading to Division 1 playoffs for the 3rd year running. Check out this post for all the details!
