The league was founded in 2009. We recruited a fledgling group of skaters and turned them into a winning team. Our current roster has around 30 skating members, many of whom were recruited mid-season and went from fresh meat training to bouting in 6 weeks or less. We finished our 2011 season with 11-4 record and qualified to play in the inaugural Derby South Playoffs: the Southern Belle Ringer Tournament.
In 2012, our 7-5 record qualified us once more to play in the Belle Ringer, where we won the entire tournament!
Our skaters are women from all walks of life who range in age from 18 to over 50. They are students, stay-at-home moms, and all walks of professional life. Some are veteran athletes while others have never played a sport before joining the league
Our referees and coaches are the men and women that keep our skaters bout-ready and up to date on the rules and regulations according to the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).
Non-skating officials (NSO) keep score, track penalties, and assist the referees. We also rely on volunteers to help make the bouts happen. They work the door on bout night, help promote the event, and also help set up the track and clean up after the bout. The league also holds fundraising events and makes team appearances during the season and post-season.
