Catch the buzz as the 580 Rollergirls put on an electrifying dance of athleticism and grace as jammers and blockers race against West Texas Roller Derby and the clock.
Founded in 2010, the 580 Rollergirls is the first flat track league in Lawton. Dedicated to empowering women and growing their sport, this nonprofit is heavily involved in community-wide volunteer work. With the motto, "‘til the wheels fall off," expect a battle when the 580 Rollergirls take to the track.
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 Rollergirls’ 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.
