Currently ranked eighth in the South Central region of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association, the No Coast Derby Girls continue to glide, juke, and shove their way toward October's playoffs. For each double-header bout, female athletes from all walks of life—from business owners to journalists—strap on skates and kneepads and step into the rink, instantly transforming into fearsome fighters such as Eva La Speed and Kilda Messenger. Once on the hardwood, No Coast's two teams—the Mad Maxines and the Road Warriors—face off against visiting squads, each attempting to collect points by blocking defenders so one skater, known as a jammer, can squeeze through the pack. Referees watch over each match, ensuring competitors don't unleash unlawful hits or forge phony school-crossing signs in order to slow down opponents.
