Sun State Roller Girls (SSRG) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to developing and promoting women’s flat track roller derby. The league aspires to advance the sport by creating a community of skaters and volunteers. Sun State Roller Girls was established in 2007 on Brisbane's south side and now has members from across Logan, Gold Coast and Brisbane. Training sessions for all skill levels are held at Browns Plains and Beenleigh and games (called bouts) are played in Beenleigh and Browns Plains. While only women compete, both men and women are encouraged to become league members and contribute in a variety of support roles including coaching, officiating and volunteering. All SSRG members have a voice in the running of the league, which is overseen by a democratically elected Committee.
Sun State's achievements include:
• Becoming a WFTDA Member League• Winning the 2012 Queensland Tournament - The Tropicarnage Cup• Second place in the 2012 National Roller Derby Tournament - The Great Southern Slam• Winning the first Queensland Tournament - The 2011 Tropicarnage Cup• Second place in the 2010 National Roller Derby Tournament - The Great Southern Slam
