Cruel Summer 2024 Invitational

With the utmost appreciation and endless gratitude to the Palmetto State Rollergirls, The Lowcountry Highrollers are proud to announce we have been bestowed the great honor of taking over the Cruel Summer Invitational!!

In its 10th anniversary, we will be keeping all the old traditions going: refs in Hawaiian shirts, leis, hula skirts, pool floaties, you name it! Of course, Cruel Summer would not be the same without original art by the amazing Elektra Q-Tion Renee Q Mchugh , ( thank you for lending your talent & support )!

You don’t wanna miss out on this event, truly a staple in the roller derby community, in the Carolinas. So many of us gained our experience at Cruel Summer. It’s truly where memories are made!
