By Captain Tokyo Takeout, The Balboa Bandits
I am very proud to say that SFV Roller Derby is growing rapidly; and with that growth, a new home team has been born. Many of you have been wondering what this new team looks like. Tokyo Takeout and Cleo Pass-ya from the Reseda Wreckers and Kat Von Reap, Eleanor Throwsevelt and Stockholm Syndi from the Topanga Maul Rats have been recruited to this new team to ensure its success. We also have amazing transfer skaters including LEGacy and Ruby Revenge from the LA Derby Dolls and Saturday Night Special and Tour De Franzia from Sugartown to help infuse almost two decades of combined derby experience to our blossoming team. We also injected our team with new blood by adding Sassy Stone, Billypitufa, and Kris Krippler to strengthen our foundation.
The first order of business was to vote in our leaders and I’m proud to have the honor of being selected as Captain with Ruby Revenge being voted in as my Co-Captain. Our goal for the first year is to build a strong, well-rounded, and competitive team that will leave the Wreckers and Maul Rats shaking in their skates. Look out Wreckers and Maul Rats because we will be coming for you soon!!! We will be STEALING all of your points.
So without further ado, I would like to officially welcome SFV’s newest home team, The Balboa Bandits!
