FINvitational 2019 – Meet the teams: Calgary Roller Derby

Kallio FINvitational 2019 is only six weeks away, so it’s time to get to know our participating teams a bit better.

Let’s start with our Canadian friends: Calgary Roller Derby!

1. What’s your plan for Finvitational?

A big part of our prep for Finvitational is making sure to travel smart as we make our way across the globe. You can bet we’ll be watching footage in airports, stretching our hamstrings on public transport and visiting a sauna as soon as we land on Finnish soil. On the track at Finvitational, we’ll be executing on everything we’ve been training for over the past several months. We are particularly honoured to be bringing our brand of Canadian roller derby to the tournament.

2. What is your league motto?

“Go Be Extra” and “Try your best and have fun” and “Get that bread”

3. Do you have any league traditions?

We love a little dance circle before a big game. You may see that unfold just before on-skates warmups. It’s part of our broader pre-game routine of togetherness, communication and just generally getting on the same wavelength at tournaments.

4. Harder or nicer?

Smarter 😉


We can’t wait to have you here, Calgary! See you in May!
