The Tomodachi Derby Tournament is happening over three days in Okinawa, EuroClash in Europe, and Skate to Thrill in the United States.

March is Brain Injury Awareness Month and the Brain Injury Association of America‘s campaign for 2015-2017 is “Not Alone.” Brain injuries can be hard to diagnose, treat, and recover from, often leading the affected person to feel isolated and depressed.
Since Roller Derby is a contact sport, concussions are unfortunately a common injury but show themselves in many different ways. Today we will focus on some concussion education and highlight the importance of knowing the symptoms and how they might affect you and your recovery.
