Bleeding Heartland is hosting our 7th annual B-team tournament on May 20-22, 2017 and we would like to invite your league to participate. Apply here!

The goal of this tournament is to assemble a mix of WFTDA B-teams for some badass derby action–we select teams based on criteria including WFTDA rank, prior participation at B Cup, and geography. We try to get teams old and new, near and far!
