Congratulations to Candy Jawbreaker for being June Jerby of the Month!
Candy Jawbreaker (isn’t that a fantastic name?) has been doing Junior Derby for a long time and is always cheerful and a great player. Candy has also been getting a chance this past year to play more derby outside the team, filling in spots on other teams as needed. She's one of those secret weapons!
1. What is your derby name and number and how did you decide on it?
My derby name is Candy Jawbreaker. My mom and I came up with my name and thought it was perfect because I’m super sweet, but I’ll also hurt you. My number’s 44 just because it’s my lucky number.
2. How long have you been with Junior Derby? How did you decide to play/find derby?
I have been with SVRG Junior Derby for almost 3 ... Read More »
What a game! The final score was 99-89 in favor of Silicon Valley’s MicroChicks in the March 11th bout against Resurrection Roller Girls’ Fallin’ Angels in Rohnert Park, California. SVRG wants to thank our gracious hosts for a great time! To remember the event, the Resurrection team gave all of our girls dog tags stamped with both team names.
Unleasha Moore (one of the Derby 2.0 coaches) reported, “The skaters did a fantastic job of working together and communicating in the pack. Plus the jammers killed it for sure! There were so many lead changes and all the girls who jammed gave it their all!” Derby 2.0 coaches Belle Wringer, Mongoose, and Unleasha Moore helped the team prepare for their victory and are looking forward to the rest of the season.

SVRG introduced our junior derby program with a summer session in 2010 to help teach girls basic skating skills, teamwork, and confidence. It was a huge success and there was a great demand by young skaters and parents—thus was born Derby 2.0, offering 8-week sessions all year round for girls aged 7-17. Girls 10 and older are eligible to play full contact roller derby. These girls are cute and fierce! Meet one of our own jerby girls, Tex Mex!
How did you first get involved in roller derby?
My mom skates for SVRG. She took me skating and I learned how to skate well. After two years of her being with SVRG, they started the Jr. League where she now coaches ... Read More »

Derby 2.o is here! For those of you who have not heard, SVRG is launching a junior derby camp this summer for girls 7 to 17. We need to do some fundraising to help cover camp costs, so we are hosting a fundraiser this Thursday, June 10, at San Jose Skate (397 Blossom Hill Road) from 6 to 9 pm. Cost of entry is $10 and you will get to come skate with SVRG and know you're supporting local girls' athletics.
If you've got a potential derby girl, this is a great opportunity to come out and meet the skaters who will be helping coach and ask any questions you may have. The staff at San Jose Skate will also be there if you have questions about skates or safety gear for your child.
