As a nationally ranked Top 25 team and a member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, the No Coast Derby Girls effortlessly excel in the circular, hit-heavy world of all-female roller derby. Comprising the Road Warriors and the Mad Maxines, the league currently has more than 50 members, each fearless to the sport’s painful collisions and frequent wipeouts. Each 60-minute, full-contact bout ensures nail-eating suspense and consistently high energy levels, and, unlike at pro basketball or football games, fans don’t have to worry about wandering food vendors who insist on slingshooting peanuts through the crowd.
No Coast Derby Girls
Competitors in the Women's Flat Track Derby Association, the No Coast Derby Girls field female athletes from all walks of life—from business owners to journalists—into two rosters of speedy skaters and crafty blockers known as the Mad Maxines and the Road Warriors. Around an oval track at the Pershing Center, the teams face off against visiting competitors in hard-hitting bouts where each squad attempts to tally points by blocking defenders so one skater, known as a jammer, can squeeze through or dart around the pack. Referees preside over each match, ensuring defenders don't slow down opponents with unlawful hits or phony school-zone signs.
