CRG Kicks Off 2017

First, we want to send best wishes for the new year as many of us found 2016 a little tough. Several skaters ended the year on crutches but, like any motivated derby girl, recovery is as inevitable as their positive outlooks and smiles on the sidelines while they heal.

We are happy to announce we have jam packed our home bouts with more double headers as our B-Railers gained momentum in their first season last year. Captain Shank Williams Jr. is determined to lead her ladies to success on the scoreboard and in skills.

Our first home bout on Saturday, March 18th is a double header and you can get two bouts for the price of one. This bout is very special to us as it benefits one of our own teammates, Malice N’Wonderlust, who was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer just before Christmas.

If you can not attend for any reason, feel free to contribute here to support #77, Malice N’Wonderlust.


Caped CruSkater

Our third home game of the season and it’s going to be fun as we take on Vette City from Bowling Green, KY AND it’s super hero themed! In honor of our benefitting charity, Chattanooga Kids on The Block and their Super Hero Fun Run on August 20th, CRG will be leaping small obstacles and rescuing damsels from…well, other damsels.

Get your discounted tickets online, or at any of our participating ticket vendors around the area.

American Grit 2-hr. season finale this Thursday, June 8th

It did not take a reality show based on strength, endurance and strategy to prove that Chattanooga native Tabatha Armour, aka Goldie Knocks from the Chattanooga Rollergirls, had grit. After a tough year in 2015, Goldie figured there was nothing she couldn’t do as a single mother of two who just went through a divorce, severely injured her shoulder during a roller derby practice (a Grade II AC Separation) and lost her sister to Sickle Cell. She knew as long as she tried, she would be a winner.

Goldie went through an arduous interview process to make it to the finals to be on the show and has given that same 110% to make it to the last episode. Off the grid for almost two month during filming, she had no cell phone, no facebook and she couldn’t communicate with her family. Just to name a few, she competes against a body-builder, a Boston cop, gold medal Olympian, and lumberjack. “The Roller Girl” enjoyed being pushed outside her comfort and time zone.

The reality show series set in Washington state, starring WWE superstar Jon Cena is coming to its first season, 10-episode end. Military-based challenges were given to four teams and in the end, a one million dollar prize will be given to the winning team. Four teams of four, derived of eight men and eight women from across America, are spearheaded by a former military member–Navy Seal, Marine, Army and Army Ranger. Goldie has remained strong on the Blue Team also known as Team Rourke lead by U.S. Navy Seal Special Forces, Rourke Denver.

At the end of a challenge, the losing team is sent “off to the circus.” The Circus is an obstacle course that ends with an endurance trial and the loser of that must leave the show. Goldie was put center stage on the season premiere when she was sent to the Circus and came out victorious. “I have always been the underdog,” Goldie said, “I like showing that never underestimate yourself and you can do anything you put your mind to.” In last week’s episode, the last show before the finale, Goldie goes to the unpredictable Circus for the third time and shows that her statuesque model-like method proves a strong strategy to victory.

Watch the 2-hr season finale this Thursday at 8pm on FOX to find out what a “small and fiery,” self proclaimed underdog puts her mind to.
