The Scouting Report
With the 2014 season underway, the OC Roller Girls are already aiming devastating blocks at squads from rival cities. Their three flagship squads—Blockwork Orange, Pulp Friction, and the Back Bay Bombshells—all train together to prepare to face off against top skaters from the area. That hard work could reap major dividends on August 16, when the Angel City Derby Girls glide into the track. On August 16, fans can also check out the OC Roller Girls co-ed team, Chorizo & Eggs, in which men and women come together to settle the age-old debate of which side of the shirt buttons belong on.
Orange County Roller Girls
In 2006, Heather Shelton was having a difficult time suppressing her alter ego, Disco Dervish. Conceived in the rough-and-tumble ranks of Tucson’s flat-track roller-derby league, Heather found herself waylaid in Orange County, where even the cerulean waves and white beaches couldn’t deter her desire to get in the oval. Taking matters in her own hands, Heather took to cyberspace, assembling a website that sought out fellow hard-hitting females to bring the hits, speed, and camaraderie of roller derby to her new home. Disco—née Heather—found plenty of eager allies, and the Orange County Rollers Girls have flourished ever since. Today, the league faces off against some of the west coast’s most decorated roller-derby squads while perennially mining the local community for Jane Does to strap on their elbow pads and assume their own empowering alter egos.
