The Derby City Rollergirls take on the Richland County Regulators on Saturday April 13th. Doors open at 7pm and the bout begins at 8pm.
The Derby City Roller Girls are the first all female flat-track roller derby league representing the Louisville area. Established as an LLC in 2005, the Derby City Roller Girls (DCRG) is owned and operated by women who love to skate.
DCRG started as a small group of passionate women with like-minded determination and dreams of bringing the sport and art of roller derby to the Louisville community. Their highest honor of 2009, the Derby City Roller Girls acquired status as an official member of WFTDA, the Women's Flat Track Derby Association.
Derby City Rollergirls play flat track roller derby according to the latest rules and clarifications from the Women's Flat Track Derby Association.
The objectives: each team fields a single point scoring skater ("Jammer") whose object is to lap as many opposing skaters as they can. The remaining skaters who aren't scoring points work both on offense and defense at the same time - to block the opposing Jammer and to clear a path for their own Jammer. Well-played roller derby requires agility, strength, speed, control, peripheral vision, communication, and teamwork.
