The Scouting Report
The Rat City Roller Girls rattle the track inside KeyArena with hard-hitting blocks and frenetic skating during two doubleheader bouts with derby squads from rival cities. The Rat City All-Stars headline against the best of the best from Baltimore’s Charm City Roller Girls on July 13 and against New York City’s Gotham Girls Roller Derby All-Stars, the top-ranked roller derby squad in the nation, on August 10. The Rat City Rain of Terror take the rink for the opening bouts on both dates, exhibiting textbook strategy and high-fiving techniques picked up by training with the All-Star squad.
Rat City Roller Girls
Necessity may be the mother of invention, but the Rat City Roller Girls can trace their roots to a different source: minute rice and lamb stir-fry. In April of 2004, a few friends gathered for a dinner party. Over plates of lamb and rice, the conversation turned towards a roller derby resurgence that was taking place in Texas. The conversation stayed on their minds, and within weeks, these friends had founded the first flat-track derby league to the Northwest. Nearly a decade later, the Rat City Roller Girls—named after the neighborhood where the league first gathered, not the underground metropolis where cheese is more valuable than gold—has grown to encompass four teams who rock KeyArena with hard-hitting bouts throughout the year. For special events and tournaments, the top players from the league join forces to form the Rat City All-Stars and represent their home against elite squads from across the country.
