The Scouting Report
On March 16, the Rollergirls open their 2013 season with a bang: Poe's Punishers and the Uncivil Warriors will clash with the Dutchland Derby Rollers’ A and B teams for the first time since 2009. Hailing from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Dutchland finished its 2012 campaign as a top 10 team in the Eastern region. Not to be outdone, River City has spent the majority of the past three years ranked among the region's top 20 teams. The bout also kicks off a string of three straight home matchups for the Rollergirls, which ensures the Greater Richmond Convention Center's floors will have a nice black-and-blue glow to them by the end of spring.
River City Rollergirls
Teachers and doctors. Moms and sisters. The River City Rollergirls don't really care who you are, as long as you're ready to hit someone—and foster an environment that values diversity and gender equity in the process.
The skater- and volunteer-operated league sprouted in early 2006 as Richmond's first all-women's flat-track roller-derby association. At the start, the league featured just two teams—Poe's Punishers and the Uncivil Warriors—but has since expanded to include new members, including the Carytown Cadets, the Hollywood Undertakers, and the Jackson Wardens. All teams take falls and crack skulls as part of the Eastern region of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association. But off the track, players put away their growling game faces when participating in community-outreach programs.
