Upcoming Bout: Battle of the North Sea

November 13th, 2013

At the doubleheader on the 30th of November, three of the cooler countries meet: Norway, Scotland and The Netherlands. Despite some cultural differences between the nations, they have a lot in common: they all border the North Sea, at some point in history they all have been pretty dominant at sea and nowadays they all play an important role in the European oil & gas industry.

Over the centuries we met many a time at sea. Let’s take the quarrel to the track this time around!

The skaters of the Trondheim Roller Derby Klub are ready for a roll with the B.ADD Girls. The All Stars face the Auld Reekie Cannon Belles from Edinburgh.

All guests will be considered early birds! Not only do we start the action at 11.30, tickets are just € 8.00 for adults in presale, and €10.00 at the door. Children younger than 12 get in for € 2.00 and the really small ones (under 4) have free entrance.

Doors open at 11.00am and the action starts at 11.30 sharp. We hope to see all of you there at Sporthal de Meerkamp, Van der Hooplaan 239 in Amstelveen.

Namur Roller Girls vs Amsterdam Derby Dames Pt. II

October 15th, 2013

The A-Team of the Amsterdam Derby Dames will be playing their first bout of the 2013-2014 season. On 26 October they travel to Belgium to take it up against the Namur Roller Girls.

The last time these teams met, at the Skates of Glory tournament in November 2012, it was an extremely tense game! ADD were behind on points, but in the very last jam of the bout, Jamakaze managed to complete 7 scoring passes, which resulted in an unexpected victory for ADD: 126-120. Click here to relive the moment.

New season, new teams. The Amsterdam Derby Dames had to say goodbye to a couple of skilled skaters who returned to their home country. Consequently, we had a few open spots on the A-Team: a perfect opportunity for some talented ladies who previously played on the B-Team to prove that they’ve got what it takes to be an All Star. No doubt, the Namur league has seen similar shifts within the team(s), so get prepared for another exciting bout….

Fresh Meat Day – We want YOU!

July 16th, 2013

The Amsterdam Derby Dames are recruiting new skaters for 2013!

On 31 August 2013 from noon to 3 pm we’ll be holding a Fresh Meat Day where you can find out what it’s like to roller skate with the Amsterdam Derby Dames.

There will be a lot of information about roller derby, how our league works, and a whole bunch of girls on roller skates!

Sign up quickly because many new girls (and boys who want to be referees) will be joining us that day and we have a maximum we can accommodate.

To join us, send us an e-mail to Fresh Meat. Due to the size of the venue and comfort level of people on skates for the first time in ages, we ask you not to bring any spectators.

After we receive your sign-up we’ll send you a confirmation e-mail with all the information you’ll need, including details about the location, what you need to bring, gear rental details for that day, and much more.

Join us on Facebook and be sure to like the Amsterdam Derby Dames on Facebook as well! We’re also on Twitter at @AMSDerbyDames.

Birds of Prey – Bout on 13-07-2013

June 24th, 2013

Birds of Prey will be swooping down on the roller derby track in Amsterdam on 13 July 2013!

More than a year ago, the Amsterdam Derby Dames played a bout against the Cork City Firebirds on their home turf, and this time these fine Irish ladies are coming to Amsterdam. It’s been a while since the two flocks faced each other and a lot of progress has been made on both sides in the meantime.

And there is more to this frenzy of birds: prior to this game, the B.ADD Girls will have a territorial dispute with the Dom City Dolls, migrating from Utrecht for the occasion. Be prepared to witness two teams giving their all in this exciting match-up.

Don’t miss out on this action-filled Saturday!

We hope to see you at our nest for the day: Sporthallen Zuid, Burgerweeshuispad 54, Amsterdam.

The first game starts at 14:30 sharp. GET YOUR TICKETS HERE: 10 euro (12 euro at the door). Kids under 12 get in for 2 euro and kids under 4 get in for free.

24 hr Scrimmathon – Sk8 The Netherlands

June 15th, 2013

Hey, all you derby fanatics out there!

We asked you a couple of weeks ago to block your diaries for the weekend of 7th – 8th September, to participate in the already legendary Scrimmathon that the Amsterdam Derby Dames are organising. After a lot of planning and puzzling on how to put this huge event together, we now can give you all the details you need to take part.

Although most us will primarily like the idea of having a 24-hour roller derby session, we cannot stress enough that we don’t just do this to please the derby-minded: Sk8 The Netherlands is all about raising a fist against sex trafficking. It may seem like something that doesn’t affect us or our friends directly, but sadly enough, it happens on a huge scale, and right under our noses. We are sure you get our drift when we say that Amsterdam is not just the capital of the country…

Luckily most of us can only imagine how it would feel being forced to sell your body. In a foreign country. Your passport taken away from you. Not getting paid. This contravenes everything roller derby stands for. That is exactly why the Amsterdam Derby Dames are trying to take a stand against sex trafficking, together with Dom City Dolls and the American initiators of Sk8 The Netherlands: Sum Mo Payne and PBR.

Most of all, we need all of YOU to make this happen. We need NSOs, referees, skaters, announcers and volunteers. Louder than ever we say: THE MORE THE MERRIER! We hope you can all find your way to Sporthallen Zuid in Amsterdam on 7th September 12:00 (noon) sharp to go on for 24 hours.

We are going to have two tracks filled with non-stop derby action. We’re looking for women’s and men’s teams to all play 4 scheduled scrimmages on the ‘team track’. Your team not taking part? No problem! With an individual skater ticket you can sign up for fun challenge bouts and participate in open scrimmages on the second track. Also you will receive an awesome t-shirt and a ‘Drills & Skills’ manual free with your ticket!

For the officials crew we proudly present our event Head Refs: Cherry Fury and Fluke Skywalker. And our event Head NSO’s: Off Track and Mazuzu.

We hope you are all as excited as we are about this special event, as we cannot do without our wonderful officials. (Note: officials that also want to skate, fill in your officials registration first. You will then get explained what to do if you also want to skate)

We need to raise some proper funds to call a halt to the gruesome reality of sex trafficking, which is why we have to ask all participants to contribute. Please do remember that all profits go directly to Fier Fryslan and Centrum Kinderhandel en Mensenhandel (CKM). These are the charities supported by Sk8 the Netherlands.

Are you just as stoked as us to be a part of this amazing charity event? Then check out the links below, and get involved!
