Derby Names & Numbers

Oct 3, 2021 | News

Finally – the most fun step you’ve all been waiting for – choosing (or changing) your skater name and/or number!! 

A detailed letter was emailed to all skaters/families about how to come up with and submit a derby name and jersey number. The document also contains a list of all derby names and jersey numbers already approved and in use at SDB. Please pay special attention to the list of derby names already in use at SDB – your skater’s name should not be similar in nature or sound to any of these names.

Additionally, all printed jerseys must match your approved name and number with the league!

All derby name and number requests should be sent to Requests will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. All submissions are due by October 10th. You will be notified via email of your skater’s approved name and number by October 20th. Please be patient once you submit your request and wait for a response. We know this is very exciting but it does take us time to review and approve each request. 

If you can’t find the email or the letter with the list, email BEFORE the deadline.

Please submit as soon as possible in case a resubmission is required. This process needs to be completed before Team Reveals on October 23rd & 24th. 

Remember, your name and number are not official until approved by the league. An SDB volunteer will update TeamSnap with the approved name and number after you have been notified. Again, this takes time, so please be patient.

Attention SDB Returning Skaters: If you wish to change your name and/or number, it must be approved following these same guidelines. If you wish to keep your current SDB approved name and number, no action is required. 

Good luck! And please let me know if you have any questions. Hopefully it will be a fun process!
