WasabiCon *is* Jacksonville – and we love partnering with other amazing local businesses and groups to further be a part of our community. Our latest partnership is with the Jacksonville RollerGirls, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!
Founded in March 2006, the Jacksonville RollerGirls (JRG) is Jacksonville’s first and only all female flat-track roller derby league. The JRG have since earned a reputation for hitting hard and playing strong against other leagues throughout the Southeast region. Comprised of over 70 skaters, the JRG are dispersed among 6 teams that compete on differing skill levels: home teams consist of the Duval Derby Dames, First Coast Fatales and the Bold City Bombshells; making up our travel teams are the J-Villains (C-team), River City Rat Pack (B-team), and the New Jax City Rollers (WFTDA All-stars). The Jacksonville RollerGirls is member owned-and-operated and is based on the concept “by the skaters, for the skaters”. All of our league members are volunteers who are dedicated to promoting an action-packed, full-contact sport that is both a thrill to play and non-stop entertainment for the spectator.
