From Shimmy With Love

Hello!  My name is Shimmy Hendrix, and I am the sponsorship manager for the Long Island Roller Rebels.  The Rebels are the international Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby Association’s foremost league on Long Island.  That’s right.  We’re number 1 on Long Island.

It’s good to be number 1.  But it takes a lot of work to stay here.  Hours of practice and hard work by our coaching staff, and dedicated skaters have not been in vain.  We are a completely volunteer run organization, so it’s the generous partnerships and sponsors that help fund our practice spaces, bout locations, uniforms, and touring operations.

We offer several different sponsorship packages as well as advertising within our home bout (game) programs.  Every month, during our home season, roughly February through November, we hold one home bout.  We distribute these beautiful programs to between 600-800 guests.  Your ad will be read!  Inside each program are the highlights to playing the game, refs and skater photos, and the goings on of our team.  It’s not just an advertising piece.

For more information and prices, please feel free to email me or reach me on my cellular phone at (347) 200-9796.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm Regards,
Shimmy Hendrix

Your comment about being the "#1 wftda league on Long Island" is very misleading. There's no doubt you guys are talented and work hard, but you are #1 bc you're the ONLY wftda on Long Island.

Hello Fan - I appreciate your comment and wouldn’t want anyone to feel as though they are being mislead. We pride ourselves in being a very strong league and we continue to move up on the wftda rankings for the East Coast. Until we are challenged by another long island league, we do remain #1. It's also interesting to me that a ‘fan’ would point this out. Thanks for reading.
