The Santa Cruz Derby Groms is the Santa Cruz Derby Girls Junior League. We have 40 skaters between the ages of 10 and 17 divided into two full contact teams, the Gromshells and the Salt Water Sassies. The Gromshells is made up of the league's most competitive players and is the Santa Cruz Derby Groms JRDA charter team. They travel across the United States to play in some of the most competitive games & tournaments that junior roller derby has to offer and are currently ranked within the top five all-female teams by the Junior Roller Derby Association! The Salt Water Sassies is an aspiring group of skaters that plays against other leagues in our local area and all over California. Our league's coaches include skaters and officials drawn from the experience and expertise of our WFTDA league. They are passionate about competitive roller derby and dedicated to the growth and success of all Groms skaters and junior refs.
