Sun State Roller Girls (SSRG) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to advancing and promoting the sport of Women's Flat Track Roller Derby in Brisbane and facilitating the development of athletic ability, sportswomanship and goodwill among league members.
Sun State Roller Girls was established in 2007 on Brisbane's south side and now has members from across Brisbane and Logan. Training sessions for all skill levels are held at Browns Plains and Beenleigh and games (called bouts) are played in Beenleigh and Browns Plains.
We promote the empowerment of women in a safe and organised environment that fosters the health, well-being and personal growth of skaters. We honour diversity, encourage self-expression and are committed to building a network of friendship and support among skaters. We seek continuous improvement in our sport and are committed to democratic principles, constructive dialogue and teamwork.
SSRG recognises and celebrates female diversity and strength, empowering and supporting women to achieve success in sport and everyday life. The league encourages and supports members to not only participate in training and bouting, but also to take on roles in management, coaching, officiating and volunteering.
While only women can participate as bouting skaters, both men and women are welcomed to become part of the organisation and are valued for their involvement in a variety of support roles. All SSRG members have a voice in the running of the league, which is overseen by a democratically elected Committee. All league members have a voice in the decision making process and agree to comply with the rules set by the league’s guidelines and policies.
