VCRs to Omaha!


That’s right OMAHA…Nebraska, USA.

Since 2010 the Vice City Rollers have been playing roller derby – damn good roller derby. Over the years the names have changed (well, most of them anyway) but the team’s spirit and passion for sport remains the same. The squad is composed of a cross-section of Canberran women with the most strategic sporting minds, whose athletic commitment has propelled the team to heights not previously achieved.

18 months ago your Vice City Rollers set themselves a goal, to make their way to the USA to play in a Continental Cup – this is the WFTDA’s division 2. Well, guess what?? Just a few days ago an invitation to the West Continental Cup rolled on into the inbox! While the team has had the better part of a decade travelling and competing nationally (including winning the national tournament this year!!!), they have never played internationally.

In order to receive a coveted invitation the team has had to work hard to win the required ranking. Gruelling training sessions for hours each week, early mornings and late nights at the gym and an epic level of commitment has seen the squad’s strength blossom.

With the goal to receive an invitation achieved (yay! already winning!!) the squad has reassessed. Competition in Omaha will be fierce. The VCRs will be pulling out all the stops, doing all the extra work, studying their opponents in order to hit Omaha HARD.


If you donate $50 or more the VCRs will send you a postcard...from Omaha!

Whenever we hit a new benchmark in our fundraising we'll have something fun to share. As if you needed anymore incentive to chip in… videos will be posted under “Updates” on this page.
