About the Rosebuds
The Rosebuds empower young women ages 12-17 through participation in flat track roller derby. Rosebuds foster an accepting team environment that enables skaters to express uniqueness and individuality via a non-traditional contact sport. Roller derby provides a supportive community where differences are celebrated, commitment to improvement is encouraged, and being your unique self is valued. Along with a lot of physical activity the Rosebud’s program assists young women with maturing a healthy mind and a healthy body.
The Rosebuds are comprised of four home teams, an all-star traveling team and a introductory roller derby program called Seedlings. The 4 home teams play an exhilarating season against one another September-March, followed by the All-Stars hitting the track and hitting the road February-July. The Seedlings training program develops new skaters year round with regular intakes. Be sure to check the Rose City Rollers homepage for the next one.

Game Recap UA vs RB
In this first junior bout of the season UA controlled the lead from the opening whistle. There were several momentum shifts in the first half with RB inching the score close. Big jams were the story of this bout for each team. In the 2nd half UA’s senior jammers controlled much of the pace and UA was able to pull away going down the stretch. What a great bout to watch and an awesome way to start the RCR junior season.
Game Recap LRR vs DSDD
“Thunderdome” sums it up for this bout. This was an on-the-ropes back and forth affair with each team trading huge left hooks. Skaters where in the penalty box all night, ejections, foul outs. LRR lead much of the bout but couldn’t shake DSDD. It came down to the final jam. DSDD was behind by about 10 points. Then AC/DC’s Thunderstuck started to play and the jam was on. The Hanger was roaring. DSDD took the lead with the LRR jammer in the penalty box. Then the DSDD jammer went to the penalty box and with 13 seconds left LRR scored the needed points to seize the victory!
