The first Women’s National Team of Roller Derby was established late fall 2013, the Roller Derby All Stars Denmark. Because of the hard work of the Sport Committee and the support of Danish Roller Skating Union we succeeded in engaging two ambitious coaches and a skilled manager for the team. In the winter of 2014 try-outs were conducted and on the basis of those, the 20 best skaters where chosen to be on the national team.
The players met approximately every other month to train or play friendly games. In the mean time they skated and trained hard with their local leagues and follow the coaches’ ambitious training programs. Then they went to Dallas and played in the World Cup. :)
Now the two new coaches are working hard to do it all again, so stay tuned for news.
