The Scouting Report
Terminal City Rollergirls’ four house squads converge on the Minoru Arena track for back-to-back bouts of hard-hitting derby action. In the first contest, the Riot Girls look to earn a 2–1 record after a ferocious face-off with the Bad Reputations. Then, Public Frenemy puts their undefeated record on the line against the Faster Pussycats, a fierce squad named after the only animals allowed to evolve into cheetahs.<p>
Terminal City Rollergirls
In 2006, a small group of women met over a plate of nachos to discuss a dream that they shared: launching Vancouver's first all-women roller derby league. Seven years later, the Terminal City Rollergirls has blossomed into a flat-track institution, with more than 60 active participants, four full teams, and its own training program that teaches aspiring competitors the tricks of the trade. The league's teams— the Riot Girls, the Bad Reputations, the Faster Pussycats, and Public Frenemy—square off in bouts overseen by Terminal City's in-house referees, who call major fouls by putting players in the penalty box and recognize good play by throwing smiley-faced stickers into the crowd.
“Fantastic! What an amazing sport! It was a blast I will definitely go back. Is there a Groupon for the finals?”
“A double-header was a bit long for my first event, but I loved it!”
