The Sacramento Roller Derby junior's team and program is the only one in the Sacramento area and provides activities, roller derby training, and confidence-building for kids ages 8-17 years old. The Junior's program was created in 2009, and our adult league members have been busy teaching kids to skate and play roller derby ever since.

Program Successes
- The Juniors have competed regionally, with many teams up and down California and Nevada. Our juniors have the opportunity to move up to join the women's team after turning 18, typically at the highest level of skating.
- They participated in their 1st Red Red Holiday in 2010 and hosted the 1st Green Green junior tournament in 2012. They have participated in numerous parades from the Pride, St. Patrick's Day and Santa parade.
- This program has helped change the lives of many Sacramento area kids. They learn confidence, team building, communication, learning to accept losses, learning from mistakes, and they always get back up.
