    Default Roller derby

    Does anybody here skate on a derby team? I went to tryouts for a team about an hour away from me tonight. Stayed and watched the team practice- it was INTENSE. Those girls work hard! Hope I can keep up.

    I don't but I have been asking everyone I know lately to go roller skating with me. Seems bad ass, and fun.

    I've been to a few practices for a team that does not require tryouts.

    I am just learning to skate so I haven't done anything intense yet, but it is a lot of fun.

    For those who are tough (or want to be) and want a fun way to get moving and connect with people, I recommend.

    I really want to try it, but I can't do any sort of contact sport (is roller derby contact? I remember watching something and the all tackled each other) due to my surgery and stuff. Damn...

    i have a friend that's a roller derby maniac. her team dresses like slutty air hostesses. the girls are fierce, have awesome punny names, wear tight hot pants and fun makeup.

    i've been to a few of my friend's meets and it scared me stupid. last time i watched there were three girls on crutches on the sidelines - all due to roller derby smack-about-ery.

    ivy, if you do it your cool points will increase by at least 34%.

    Oh yeah, roller derby is contact fo shizzle. One of the team members broke her femur last year. But they teach you how to fall safely and stuff like that before you can scrimmage.

    I am currently taking suggestions for a derby name- my fallback option is Tremenda Sass.

    Poison Ivy?

    Is roller derby only for chicks? Always looked kick ass to me but I disagree with strawberries, cool points increase by at least 40%.

    WFTDA stands for Women's Flat Track Derby Association, so most of the leagues that are active now are women. I did read a thing recently about some men starting up their own leagues. But even WFTDA leagues have plenty of use for the mens- two of the coaches of the team I may join are dudes, and some of the refs are dudes.

    Ooh, cool, Ivy! My cousin does derby in New Orleans. I think it's awesome, but I would most assuredly get my scrawny, weak butt kicked.

    Tremenda Sass is hilarious! Poison Ivy's good, too, but I bet there's already one on the league roster. I was really proud of some of the names I picked for my cousin, including Hermione Danger (which turned out to be taken, boo!). You could also make Ivy into I.V. --like someone's gonna need one after they deal with you. I'd have to think of how, though.

    The derby name database is here:

    http://www.twoevils.org/rollergirls/

    There are some taken I.V. names that are really good, like I.V. Sedation. There's also an Ivy N. O'Steesia.
