Description

Catch the buzz as the Oklahoma City Roller Derby put on an electrifying dance of athleticism and grace as jammers and blockers race against each other and the clock.

In 2006, eight women brought roller derby back to Oklahoma by forming the Tornado Alley Rollergirls/405 Rollergirls. By that August the league had created enough interest and grown into four separate teams, with the first bout being held in January of 2007. In 2009 the 405 Rollergirls turned the league over to Oklahoma City Roller Derby, who joined and began competing in the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association or WFTDA in 2011.

Challenging and hard-hitting, the modern sport of Flat Track Derby is governed by the WFTDA. Established in 2001, this organization provides a standardized set of rules and safety guidelines for each league and creates a platform for national competition.

From skating rinks to event centers or even parking lots, derby matches (called bouts) can be held on any skateable surface.  Each bout consists of two thirty minute halves with each half being further broken down into two minute shifts or jams.

Essentially, each jam is a full-contact race on skates. Once the whistle blows, the Derby’s jammer struggles to fight her way through the opposing team’s four blockers, scoring points off each one she passes before the timer runs out.
