It’s that time again! It’s time for two outstanding fans to earn a spot as a guest captain during Black & Blue 9, our annual charity bout!

The highest bidders win … and get to help out a great cause. All proceeds from the auction will go to this year’s charity, the LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland.

As an honorary guest captain you will draft your own roller derby team from BRRG skaters and Cleveland Men’s Roller Derby, attend team practices to get to know the skaters and help develop strategy, create lineups, and bench coach your team to victory at Black & Blue 9.

One skater representative will be appointed to assist you with your duties before and during the game. Guest captains will also receive 10 free tickets so that friends and family can see you in action, as well as a special thank you gift to remember your experience with the skaters of BRRG.

AUCTIONS WILL CLOSE SUNDAY OCT. 26 AT 7:30 PM (Team Blue) and 8:15 PM (Team Black).

All of the teams of Burning River Roller Girls will regroup into Team Black and Team Blue for one of the most exciting roller derby events of the year. And this year we are welcoming special guests from Cleveland Men’s Roller Derby!

But the highlight of the night will be the halftime show, in which the new recruits of Burning River Roller Girls will engage in a battle of full-contact musical chairs on skates! This unbelievable, out-of-control event keeps fans talking all year long and acts as a rite of passage to the newest members of the league.

See you Nov. 22!
