The Jeerleaders came about as a way to provide an alternative to people in the Midcoast to be involved with the exceptional phenomena of the Rollers without needing to don skates. We were inspired by the hard work, sportswomanship, camaraderie, and community building the Rollers have built while presenting the community with a new paradigm for female empowerment. As you know, it is an incredible team full of incredible women doing crazy, hardcore, and righteous things who push themselves with every stride. And we wanted to be some of the folks to sing their praises and add to the performativity of their events, while also giving ourselves a place to work hard, have fun, and make friends.
