Berlin Bombshells become Bear City Roller Derby


About eight years ago, eight women came together to play roller derby in Berlin. These young women who created the Berlin Bombshells have paved the way to making the team one of the top 10 in European roller derby.
From a handful of women came one of the largest roller derby leagues in Germany, now with more than 80 members. Besides two official travel teams, the league also includes a Talent Pool (Breaking Bears) as well as referees and non-skating officials (NSOs). In addition, the league is proud to have created the first junior derby in Germany.

The league has been known unofficially as Bear City Roller Derby for some time, but with the recent advancement of the league, it is important that the name is inclusive of all its members. With the new official name Bear City Roller Derby (BCRD), we aim to unite all members. Players from the A- and B-teams and the rest of the BCRD, referees, NSOs (Bearly Legal – Bear City Roller Derby Officials) and Juniors (Bear City Junior Derby), will all fall under the umbrella of Bear City Roller Derby.

Under the new name and the new logo is a strong community. All people, regardless of origin, gender, skin color, social background, religious affiliation or disability, are welcome.

Von der Bär-Stadt in die Bier-Stadt und wieder zurück

Dank einiger Großbrauereien war Milwaukee im 19. Jahrhundert als amerikanische Bierhauptstadt bekannt. Dreimal dürft ihr raten, wer das Bier damals nach Milwaukee gebracht hat …“The Germans“!
