We’re thrilled to announce our acceptance into the 2018 WFTDA Continental Cup in Kalamazoo, Michigan!
Following three stunning wins at the East Coast Derby Extravaganza tournament in June, Grand Raggidy soared 18 spots in WFTDA international rankings, from 82nd to 64th place. This qualified us for the sought-after Seed 12 spot in the North America – East division of the WFTDA Cup! With over 340 teams forming the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, the competition for seeding is tougher than ever this Playoffs season. We’ve made our mark, but won’t stop until we bring the Cup home to Grand Rapids.
The WFTDA Continental Cup kicks off at Wings Event Center in Kalamazoo on Friday, August 17th, with Grand Raggidy’s opener taking place at 4 p.m. versus Team United Roller Derby from Des Moines, Iowa – the first meeting of these two teams! Saturday and Sunday competitors could include longtime rivals North Star Roller Derby, Charlottesville Derby Dames, and other heavyweights. Come show your West Michigan pride and join your Grand Raggidy All Stars as we roll out the hardest-hitting roller derby of the year.
