It’s with great excitement that the Orangeville Roller Girls announce the renaming of their WFTDA charter team, as well as provide additional information on their two non-charter teams.
With a recent increase in skater intake, ORG is proud to announce the renaming of their WFTDA charter team to Orangeville Roller Girls All Stars Misfit Militia. With the closing of the Misfit Militia independent team at the height of their rankings (the Misfits were ranked #3 in Canada and #32 in North America as of November 10th, 2015), the Orangeville Roller Girls wish to recognize their contributions to Canadian roller derby by maintaining the Misfit brand under ORG, alongside the league’s two current teams.
With the announcement of the renaming of ORG’s charter team, the league is expanding to include the formerly-named WFTDA charter team, Pulp Affliction, as a B-Team, and Fox Force Five will remain a house team.
The Orangeville Roller Girls’ expansion provides a newly refocused mission for the league to encourage a passion and balance for roller derby at all levels, from beginner skaters to recreational, to skaters who wish to compete at a dedicated and competitive national and international level.
With this newfound focus, the league is very excited to provide a great hub in south-central Ontario for both new and experienced skaters and derby athletes, and aims to provide outstanding training, support, and kinship to all walks of derby life. The future of the league is bright, and we welcome everyone to join us and let the good times roll!
