Our Season Opener is Saturday, March 14th!

Are you ready for a full night of hard hitting, nail biting roller derby awesomeness?

The 2015 roller derby season in Charleston will begin with two explosive bouts, back-to-back, on Saturday March 14th, when the Lowcountry Highrollers come face to face with the roller girls from Greensboro, NC! The Greensboro Rollergirls will be bringing their biggest and baddest skaters in hopes of taking down Charleston’s very own Lowcountry Highrollers. Taking the fastest and hardest players from the Lowcountry, our Bruisin’ Betties and All Stars will stand united and steady against their traveling opponents. Be there to cheer on your favorite Highrollers!

The doors open at 4:30pm, as our Bruisin’ Betties take on Greensboro’s Counterstrike at 5:00 PM; and to finish the night, at 7:00pm our All Stars will battle it out against the Gate City Allstars.

Pabst Blue Ribbon & Holy City Brewing will be in the house, with beer available for sale; along with some seriously delicious food provided by local food truck, Charleston Caribbean Creole!

This double header will be held at the I.S.O.L. facility in North Charleston, 3337 Business Circle North Charleston, SC 29418.

League Tryouts

feb2015tryoutsWe will hold our first round of tryouts for the 2015 season THIS Sunday, February 1st at 10 am at ISOL 3337 Business Circle North Charleston, SC. Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby is an awesome team sport for women of all shapes, sizes, and ages 18+. Please contact Snarky at carleyauggie@gmail.com with any questions.

 

The Meat Locker

The Lowcountry Highrollers recreational program, aka the Meat Locker, provides an opportunity for local women (18+) to learn the sport of roller derby and enjoy scrimmage and practice time without the pressures of attendance requirements, league duties, and actual bouting. We hold weekly practices, including meet-ups for outdoor skating. And dues are just $30 per month.

All skaters must bring a mouth guard, quad-style roller skates and athletic shoes. Inexpensive mouth guards are available at Walmart and Dick’s sporting goods, but Protech makes some of the most comfortable ones on the market.  Helmets, pads, and skates can all be purchased through an online retailer. We recommend Wicked Skatewear for your roller derby gear and skates.  Don’t buy the cheap skates sold at  sporting goods stores – they will fall apart after a few practices.  If you don’t have all your gear yet, you can also borrow from our loaner box for a short period of time.  We only have a few loaner helmets, so we recommend you get your own. Be sure to get a multiple-impact skateboard-type helmet, not a bicycle helmet.
