Everything you need to know about the Turtle Sliders
Although they haven’t participated in a Marble League yet, the Turtle Sliders won everyone’s heart in the 2019 Fan Team Contest as they got second place.
The Turtle Sliders are blue with yellow and brown stripes, and they started their marble racing career in the Seven Seas Circuit, where they raced against other teams from Oceania.
Actually, they have a long history of trying to defeat the Oceanics in the Seven Seas Circuit, and they were even close to defeating them one time, but the Oceanics have left the circuit to focus on the Marble League.
Sadly, once the Oceanics left the Seven Seas Circuit, the Turtle Sliders lost interest.
Shelly, the only original remaining member of the Turtle Sliders, said, “They felt like they had lost a sense of porpoise—I mean, purpose. Sorry. But I never lost that passion, and my hope was that I could inspire other athletes to do the same.”
The Turtle Sliders secured their place in the 2019 Marble League Showdown thanks to their fans’ love (and votes!)
Sadly, even with all this love and enthusiasm, they finished in 11th in the 2019 Marble League Showdown, so they didn’t qualify for the 2020 Marble League.
Turtle Sliders Team Members
The Turtle Sliders’ team members are Shelly (the only original member left in the team), Crush, Squirt and Dash, while Frank plays as a reserve.
Splint is their only coach so far, and we really hope he manages to lift up the Turtle Sliders’ spirit!
The Turtle Sliders’ best event is Collision, in the 2019 Marble League Showdown.

My kids couldn’t wait to start their very own Marble League!
I am always a fan of new STEM games, for them, so I did a bit of research on what options were out there.
