On January 30, 2012, Derby Girls, Dewey Decibel and Ginger Brute, came into the KZSC studio to talk with Nada Mljkovic on Gamers on Game. Dewey plays for the Seabright Sirens and is a backup for the Harbor Hellcats. Ginger is a Seabrite Siren when not studying at UCSC.

Started in 2007 as the first all-female, full contact, flat track roller derby league in Santa Cruz, the Santa Cruz Derby Girls and a non-profit committed to furthering the sport of roller derby and giving back to the community. Since its inception, the league has grown to over 100 members.

The league has 3 teams, the Boardwalk Bombshells, the Harbor Hellcats, and the Seabright Sirens. In addition, SCDG reaches out to our local youth through the Santa Cruz Derby Groms, SCDG’s junior derby program and our junior ref program.

February 18th 6:30 pm Season Home Opener at the Civic. This first bout of this season will be a mix of girls from all three teams playing against each other, black vs white. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see your favorite derby girls go head to head!

On March 17th, at 6:30 pm Bombshells will take on the Bay Area Derby Girls Richmond Wrecking Belles. All games are at the Santa Cruz Civic located at 307 Church Street, Santa Cruz. Tickets are available at santacruztickets.com.
