The Scouting Report
Spring is a lovely time when flowers begin to bloom, birds begin to fill the air with their cheerful song, and the River City Rollergirls begin to pummel opponents into the ground. On May 17, RCR celebrates the season with "Spring Fling," an intrastate battle with the Charlottesville Derby Dames to determine which team's players get the right away at stop signs.
River City's "A" team, the Poe's Punishers, will anchor the evening's main event, while the Uncivil Warriors will set the tone in a showdown between "B" squads. Both RCR squads have already had success this season, as they emerged victorious from their season openers in late March.
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.
