Roller Derby Anyone

mn roller girlsWhen most people think of Minnesota, they think of mosquitos, cold or snow but how about a roller derby?  Meet the Minnesota Roller Girls!  They are a member of the female only, skater owned, flat track roller derby league.  The Minnesota Roller Girls (MNRG) were founded in 2004 and today the league has some 80 skaters that play on 4 home teams: Atomic Bombshells, Dagger Dolls, Garda Belts, Rockits and they have a traveling team that competes in the North Central Region.

The MNRG skate in St. Paul at the Roy Wilkins Auditorium and are the first league in the country to have a professional space for their practices and bouts.  As for attendance, the MNRG averages about 4000 spectators per bout.  The MNRG are in the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association which now has 172 professional members in different divisions.  The Association is not limited to the USA, they also have associations in Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Sweden and the UK.  The US league is divided into 4 regions with the MNRG ranking second in the North Central region as of the end of January 2013.

If you are looking for something different to do, consider attending a MNRG bout!  People of all ages are welcome but do keep in mind that it can be an aggressive sport and there is occasional bad language.  The team says to view a bout as rated PG 13.  Tickets are reasonably priced and in some cases kids under certain ages are free with the purchase of an adult ticket. Head on down to St. Paul, grab a bite to eat and enjoy the Minnesota Roller Girls!  Click here for the MNRG website.
