2018 Sea to Sky Sirens
In the beginning, the odds of finding enough interested and eligible women to form a roller derby team in a town of 15,000 people seemed slim. Nevertheless, in the fall of 2008, a crazy (and possibly desperate) former member of Toronto Roller Derby decided that such a team was exactly what her new home town needed. Mala Justed, the godmother of the Squamish Womens Roller Derby Association.
What started as just six girls meeting on evenings and weekends to skate on the streets and in parking lots has turned into a burgeoning league. The SWRDA is now celebrating its 7th year as an official non-profitit with a group of more than 20 members. Not too shabby for small town Squamish! Not that anyone should be surprised; as we all know Squamish is full of tough, athletic, and adventurous women, and this is well represented on the track.
The Squamish Women’s Roller Derby Association became a registered non-profit society in September 2010, with a group of nearly 30 members. Not too shabby for small town Squamish! Not that anyone should be surprised; as we all know Squamish is full of tough, athletic, and adventurous women, and this is well-represented on the track.
Our team is made up of diverse individuals: from child care workers to lawyers, accountants, medical professionals, social media wizards, artisans, electricians, marketing specialists, social workers, registered massage therapists, photographers, graphic designers, and students. Each of our skills allows the Sirens to effectively run a successful organization.
