Please welcome Sheffield Steel Junior Rollers as the newest edition to the Sheffield Steel Rollergirls family.
So despite the woefully uncooperative British weather, Sheffield Steel Junior Rollers are proud to announce the birth of a healthy, vibrant, mixed Junior Derby league.
South Yorkshire's first junior roller derby league was born at 9:30am on Sunday 17th January 2016. Weighing in at 11 junior rollers it was a beautiful sight to behold. And yes we can confirm that the league and junior rollers are doing very well indeed.
Sheffield Steel Junior Rollers along with Sheffield Steel Rollergirls would like to sincerely thank all the parents who braved the bitter January weather to make the trip up to Springs Leisure Centre on the morning of the 17th January.
We can't tell you how much we enjoyed meeting Emma, Eilidh, George, Jess, Jordan, Leo, Lola, Polly, Robbie, Ruby and Tulip, who themselves were not only our wonderful first EVER attendees, but who also gave it their all during the session. We've got to say our collective hearts were swelling with pride and adulation at just how well the first attendees did.
Thanks and praise must also to our lovely Sheffield Steel Rollergirls coaches (Uma Thumpin and BB-Sk8), assistant coaches (Bunny, B' Obama, Cherry, Demon, Luna, Ramona, and Sin) and helpers (Oblivion Westwood, Heidi D Panti and Emma G).
Remember there's still time to reserve a place on our second or final free taster taking place Sunday 24th and 31st January. Why not check out our Join Us page to learn how you can reserve a place for your pre-teen or teenager.
Remember we also have parent Meet & Greets taking place on Wednesdays from 7:15pm at Ponds Forge throughout the whole of January.
So regardless of whether you're a player, a super die hard, suicide seat sitting derby fan of old or a relative newcomer to the the scene, there's a little of something for everyone.
The Parent's Meet & Greets is a place where you can drop in for 10 minutes or stay for the whole 90 minutes, where you can put your questions directly to us.
Don't worry if you can't make it to any other the evening M&Gs session you can always email Juniors@sheffieldsteelrollergirls.co.uk your questions directly to us.
We hope to see you and your preteen or teenager in a Sheffield Steel Junior Rollers training session soon.

This article was first published on Sunday 17th January 2016, the eve of first ever free tasters to launch Sheffield Steel Junior Roller. The luck and excited attendees will forever play an important part in our history, as part of the first ever Sheffield Steel Junior Rollers session. Obviously attendees were for a real treat, but they also had little, to no idea of what to expect! So although the purpose of this article was to support that taster session, it's content is relevant for any first as well as regular roller derby session (the only exception being the signed wavier - point .1, which is only necessary for your juniors initial session.) Please enjoy and share.
Well the waiting is almost over and your first derby session is just around the corner. Juniors attending their first session are always in for a real treat! we really hope that your pre-teen or teenager is just as excited as everyone here at SSJR HQ as we've planned a fun filled, jam packed session and we'd love for your child to experience the fullness of all the activities we've got planned. So as this is your child/ren's first session we've put together a few tips to help your youngster get the most out of their first junior roller derby session.
