We also appreciate the generous services of our sponsor, Dr. Mike Rogerson. Rogerson Chiropractic is a family and sports chiropractic clinic in Santa Clara.

A successful league takes hard work both on and off the track. Many people donate their time and talents to make SVRG a success.

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but our league photographers are priceless! Take Adrian Valenzuela, for example. His photo of SVRG won Derbylife.com’s 2011 Photo of the Year contest for the best color category!

You would need to be present from 5:00 to 9:00 at San Jose Skate at 397 Blossom Hill Rd. in San Jose. We are a nonprofit and this bout is a benefit for the YWCA so we can't pay very much. We would really prefer to have someone volunteer their time and we can give you advertisement space ... Read More »
