Roller Derby has gone through many revolutions and revivals. Modern day roller derby is a full-contact sport on quad skates with the brutality of rugby and the grace of gymnastics.

The hits are real! They are not staged or planned and they DO hurt.  But the way most derby players look at it, if it were easy there would be nothing special about it.  You’ll see.  Derby girls are a breed all their own.

99% of derby leagues are non-profit, skater owned and operated organizations with a huge focus on community involvement and empowering league members.  It is more than a game.  It is a lifestyle.

Part of this lifestyle is the amazing bond between the people that participate.  “Derby love” is powerful stuff that creates unshakable relationships between skaters from all sorts of backgrounds!
