    Cherry Bomb Charmers Go Head Over Wheels With The Florida Junior Rollergirls!

     
    Orange Park’s junior roller derby team, the Cherry Bomb Charmers, will meet the Daytona-based Florida Junior Rollergirls in a roller derby bout on June 8th in Orange Park, Florida.

    Orange Park’s premier junior roller derby team, the Cherry Bomb Charmers, takes the floor once again, this time defending their home turf in a full length, full contact bout against the Florida Junior Rollergirls on Sunday, June 8th.

    The junior roller derby bout will be held at the Skate Station Funworks located at 230 Blanding Blvd., Orange Park, Florida, at 6:00pm on Sunday, June 8th. Rink doors will open at 5:30pm for the bout. Admission for the event is $5 at the door. Active duty military and children ages 10 and under are admitted free. Roller derby fans should bring their own chairs for the event.

    The Charmers’ home bout, entitled “Head Over Wheels”, will be the first of the season in their home rink in Orange Park. “We’ve been traveling a good bit this season,” said Charmers’ General Manager, Dana Wolfe, “We’ve met some great people and bouted in some fantastic venues, but it’s going to be good to take the track in our home rink.” When asked about the name of the junior roller derby event, Wolfe continued, “We wanted to name the bout something that would be indicative of the love our girls have for this sport. We’re a newer team, but our skaters are passionate about derby and it shows.”

    The Charmers’ opponents on June 8th will be the Florida Junior Rollergirls. The “Head Over Wheels” event will be the first time the two teams have ever faced each other.

    The goal of the Cherry Bomb Charmers junior roller derby team is to encourage young skaters to realize their full potential and to empower them to become courageous young women, radiating confidence on and off the track. As a Charmer, junior derby skaters learn lifelong team-building skills. Skaters learn strength and independence, all the while celebrating their own individuality and unique identity in an atmosphere of sisterhood and family-like stewardship.

    The Cherry Bomb Charmers are a 501(c)3 nonprofit junior roller derby team and are based in Orange Park, Florida. Fans are encouraged to follow the Charmers on Facebook and Instagram (#cherrybombcharmers).
