Every Twin City Knockers home bout features support for a local charity, and this month the Knockers are supporting Philadelphia Center, Northwest Louisiana’s HIV/AIDS Resource Center. The Philadelphia Center’s mission is to prevent the spread of HIV by educating the public with regard to how HIV is contracted and how its transmission may be avoided. Bre “Breasaurus” Garcia, a Blocker for TCK stated, “I’ve lost two very good friends to complications with the AIDS virus. It makes me feel good to give back to the Philadelphia Center because they are dedicated to providing information on HIV/AIDS education, prevention and awareness.”
Roller derby has experienced a nation-wide explosion in the past few years and currently boasts 1058 leagues in 39 countries. Attendance during the Twin City Knockers’ 2011 inaugural season indicated that the Shreveport/Bossier City area is quickly falling in love with this aggressive, competitive sport, and the league is ready for a highly competitive second season with 5 2012 home games and 6 away games already scheduled and with more in the works. The league is constantly recruiting skaters, volunteers, referees, and of course, fans. More information about the Twin City Knockers can be found at www.twincityknockers.org .
