The Scouting Report
On August 23, roller-derby fans can watch the region’s up-and-coming players evolve right in front of their eyes. The action begins with young jammers, blockers, and pivots of two junior squads: the Lil’ Nemesisters, understudies of the Smoky Mountain Rollergirls, and the Rome Rollerettes, heirs to the Rome Rollergirls’ glory. The two parent teams—the Smoky Mountain Roller Girls and the Rome Rollergirls—square off in the ensuing bout. Once the track has been cleared and all injured kneepads attended to, the home team Marietta Derby Darlins face off against the Mississippi Brawl Stars in the main event.
Marietta Derby Darlins
Since 2011, the Marietta Derby Darlins have been a destination squad for aspiring derby stars and roller-derby fans. From February to October, they play a series of home bouts at the Cobb County Civic Center and hit the road for games against regional squads. The team welcomes all women who wish to join the team and celebrate the health benefits of skating, the joy of camaraderie, and the virtues of moving in circular patterns.
