Sacramento Senators

Location: Sacramento, California, USA

Colors: Blue (Pantone 280 C), Red (Pantone 180 C), White

 

Simply put, the name, the colors, and the logo stem from Sacramento being California's state capital. Here is the team evolution:

San Diego Vipers

Location: San Diego, California, USA

Colors: Green (Pantone 369 C), Red (Pantone 1805 C), White

 

Ever since San Diego got this team, the color scheme and the name have relatively remained the same, along with the white chevron on the logo and shirt. The green comes from the color of the snake, and the red is meant to convey danger. Here is the team evolution:

San Francisco Wizards

Location: San Francisco, California, USA

Colors: Black, Gold (Pantone 108 C), Ruby, Amethyst

 

The original colors of ruby and amethyst are not the only unique things about this team. The numbers and the NOB on the team's home shirts are in different colors to celebrate the quirkiness of some of San Francisco's citizenry. The black and gold come from a typical witch's hat. Here is the team evolution:

These look great! Only nitpick is that the template you use doesn't have pants/shorts. But these are really good!

This is such a unique sport! What an interesting creation.

 

So I'm assuming games are played like team ten pin bowling events?

 Correct!

 

What's your favorite team so far?

 

I might extend this project to include the five other roller bowling association across the globe if this gets enough love. Thanks for the responses so far.

Calgary Bighorns

Location: Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Colors: Black, Red (Pantone Red 032 C), White

 

Originally the Calgary Southerners to refer to the team's location within the province of Alberta, the team originally embraced a cowboy-like identity, but progressively shied away from that as time went on. Through this name change, the cowboy days are over, but the colors of black, red, and white remain. Here is the team evolution:

Edmonton Freeze

Location: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Colors: Blue (Pantone Process Blue C), Ice Blue (Pantone Blue 0821 C), White

 

Unlike their rivals in Calgary, this team has relatively remained the same as far as any changes are concerned. With perhaps the most iconic logo in all of NARBA, why change? The "Freeze" name and the lighter blue color come from Edmonton being the northernmost located team in NARBA. The darker blue comes from Edmonton's city flag. Here is the team evolution:

Montreal Mountaineers (Alpinistes)

Location: Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Colors: Black, Purple (Pantone Violet C), White

 

If Edmonton has the most iconic logo, Montreal's is not that far behind, but there is a slight change to it for NARBA 3.0. The "Mountaineers" name comes from Montreal meaning "Mount Royal" in French. The color scheme follows this fact. In fact, if it weren't for the team being a roller bowling team, you wouldn't be wrong to assume that the team is always dressed for a day out skiing on the slopes. Here is the team evolution:

Toronto Warthogs

Location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Colors: Black, Rust (Pantone 181 C), White

 

The "Warthogs" name comes from the nickname of "Hogtown" for Toronto. Since Toronto is a multicultural city, the logo is of a caricature of a warthog, so that it'll appeal to everyone.  Here is the team evolution:

Vancouver Vanguard

Location: Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Colors: Blue (Pantone 662 C), Red (Pantone 186 C), Gold (Pantone 123 C)

 

Originally the BC Britons in the WRA (the precursor to the International Roller Bowling Congress or IRBC), when the opportunity came for a change of name, "Vanguards" was the serendipitous solution that Vancouver wanted to maintain a British connection and having a nickname that started with a "V". It was eventually shortened to just "Vanguard" for NARBA 2.0 and later. Here is the team evolution:

No worries mate. They all look great, but I think the Outsiders is probably my favourite just because of how different and creative it is.

Detroit Kings

The "Kings" name refers to the "kings" of the US automotive industry: GM, Chrysler, and Ford. The crown logo follows this reasoning. Here is the team evolution:

Minnesota Bruins

You can consider this identity as revenge towards Los Angeles for stealing Minnesota's Lakers NBA team. However, the colors of the team come from the Minnesota state flag. However you slice it, this identity is one of the classiest in the MWL, if not in NARBA. Here is the team evolution:

Originally the St. Louis Lions, this team wanted a more localized nickname, because the "Lions" name felt like an add-on. The "Archers" name comes from St. Louis's most famous landmark, the Gateway Arch. The team colors come from the city flag. Here is the team evolution:
