The Scouting Report
On October 5, the Dockyard Derby Dames rumbles into its eighth season with a Saturday-night doubleheader. In the headlining match-up, the reigning league champions, the Maurading Mollys, begin their title defense by trying to trip up the Hellbound Homewreckers. The evening also features a bruising cross-border battle between the Trampires and Vancouver's Terminal City, who possess an additional weapon in their passports' pointy corners.
Dockyard Derby Dames
Away from the rink, the players who make up Dockyard Derby Dames could be seen as teachers, accountants, nurses, journalists, and moms. But once they strap on a pair of skates, these women become warriors of the track—impassioned athletes with a thirst for victory who wear bruises like badges of honor. The league was founded in 2005 by a small group of skaters, and has since grown to include four teams. Today, it even boasts a travel team that treks across the country to face other squads and make sure the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans both have enough water in them. Dedicated as they are to the sport, though, the ladies of Dockyard Derby Dames are equally committed to giving back to the community by sponsoring charities and participating in community outreach events.
