We’ve had to put the Nickel City Knockouts on a temporary hiatus for the 2016 season due to a larger than usual number of skater retirements in the offseason. We plan to have them back out there soon! Our apologies to all of our NCKO Die-Hards!
The Nickel City Knockouts started out as the underdogs, big-hearted but rarely able to bring home the W in their shaky first couple of seasons. But consistent membership, leadership and coaching kept the dream alive, and in the going on five years since veteran skater Supernova took over the head coaching position for the team, they’ve built an incredibly cohesive, consistent team. The team is stacked with a lethal mix of long-term veterans and more recent draftees, including several past Rookies of the Year, and it is fueled by blood, sweat, tears, and love.
At home or on the road as ambassadors of QCRG to non-WFTDA teams, the Nickel City Knockouts bring the spirit, the heart, the power, and most importantly, the most consistent, crushing defense the league has to offer. And watch out, they bring a pretty good game to the after-party too.
The Knockouts are honored and proud to be defending the title for a fourth consecutive season. (QCRG Champions 2012, 2013, 2014)
