Gold Winner Anchor City Rollers

Silver Winner HSSC: Halifax Sport & Social Club

Bronze Winner Metro Senior Women's Soccer League

Pardon the pun, but Anchor City has been on a roll this past year. The derby league started a junior program for young athletes ages eight to 18, doubled its home teams from two to four and held multi-purpose derby bouts featuring food truck parties and 50-50 draws for local community groups. They also joined the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association’s apprenticeship program, meaning the local A-team will be competing at a higher, WFTDA-certified level, says spokesperson Kaarina Mikalson. “And hopefully, eventually going to competitions across the world.”
