It’s no coincidence that in 2014 Greensboro Roller Derby named our B Team COUNTERSTRIKE
We choose that name in honor of the historical February 1st in 1960 when four North Carolina A&T State University students sat at the lunch counter of Woolworths in downtown Greensboro waiting patiently to be served in a non-violent protest. The Greensboro sit-in was not only one of the most important events in Greensboro’s history, but it is also one of the most important events in the history of the civil rights movement.
That Woolworths is now the International Civil Rights Center & Museum and is open to the public. Next time you’re in Greensboro stop by and visit the museum visit!
Happy Birthday to one of our amazing refs! Scruff McRough, we hope you have an amazing day and thank you for everything you do for our league! You can blow your whistle at us any time!

A portion of the proceeds from the bout will go towards Every Campus A Refuge
Inspired by Pope Francis’ call on every parish to host one refugee family, Every Campus a Refuge calls on every college and university to partner
with a refugee resettlement agency and host one refugee family on their campus grounds and assist them in resettlement. Guilford College in Greensboro has done just that for 32 refugees,18 of them children.
