In its ninth season, Arizona Roller Derby rolls out a rink’s worth of savage skaters who elbow, knee, and crash into opponents in high-octane bouts on their turbulent road to glory. Fans of fierce four-wheeled combat witness the season’s final march to a league championship and state tournament while six teams duke it out. On January 14, the Bad News Beaters, clad in blue baseball uniforms that are speckled in pre-chewed sunflower seeds, battle their northern intrastate rivals the Whiskey Row-llers. February is the Valentine’s Day-themed bout, where hearts are just one of the many things that can break. The thundering of wheels rumbles over the March horizon when the Tent City Terrors scrap while donning prison stripes and spraying a mixture of maple syrup and horse sweat on others’ wheels. Then in April the Brawlarinas twirl in their purple tutus while tackling the Bruisers. Finally in May the Emerald City Rollergirls skate the yellow brick road, looking for a very frightened wizard.
