Season starts at home for Rollergirls

March 27, 2013 by  

The Rollergirls of Central Kentucky will kick off the season opener at home in mid-April, playing against huntsville’s Dixie Derby Girls.

The event will take place at the Lexington Convention Center and will no doubt draw attendees from surrounding towns and cities, such as Crescent Springs and Erlanger.

The Rollergirls of Central Kentucky, fondly known as ROCK, has a mission of being dedicated to supporting amateur sports competition, as well as raising funds to assist with the activities.

Founded in 2006, ROCK was temporarily merged with a nearby town’s team but became an independent League in the fall of 2007. The first inaugural competition took place that December, drawing 200 people.

In January of 2012, ROCK was able to move into its permanent home practice facility. The facility is known as the Bread Box in downtown Lexington.

As ROCK relies on the support of local businesses and donors for the continuation of the league, sponsors are always being sought. By sponsoring events such as these, businesses and individuals will be noted on various print materials. Catalog printing generally contains sponsor information with images, graphics, and descriptions. Flyer printing also can contain sponsor recognition, which is a great way of getting a company name into the hands of the general public through mass distribution.

The Rollergirls of Central Kentucky website has complete information about the league, the mission, the rules, sponsor solicitation, and player sign-up. A schedule of upcoming bouts is also available online, along with email addresses for additional questions. The first game is on April 20.
