A brief history of Derby…
Modern roller derby emerged this century from the theatrical version that was televised off-and-on from the 1960s to the late ’90s. The most popular version of the sport now is played with traditional quad skates (not inline skates) on a flat track (not a banked track), which can be set up in a gymnasium, arena, parking lot or almost any other flat surface.
The action isn’t staged. Roller derby today is a real sport with rules, strategies, athleticism and injuries. Jet City Rollergirls is a member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, the sport’s international governing body. Learn more about the basics of the game on our Derby 101 page or read about the Pacific Northwest’s strong roller derby community. You can also keep up with the sport through Derby News Network, a terrific online resource for scores, video and other coverage.
