DO NOT UNDER ESTIMATE THESE WOMEN!
It may be hard to reconcile in your mind that you’re favorite School Teacher, Nurse, Bank Manager or even Niece, is also an athlete in the highly competitive and sometimes brutal sport of Roller Derby. Put out of your mind the black and white reruns of the Big Time Wrestling type Roller Derby of the 60’s. The Dire Skates are the real deal. Like the Clark Kent of Super Man fiction, these lady’s may conduct themselves as the professionals they are in their working carriers. Or when you see them laughing and clowning around with their families, or at one of the many charity events they support. If you should happen to encounter one of them on game day we suggest treading lightly as she prepares to release her ultra ego that night.
The Dire Skates are a registered WFTDA team and hold their home competitions at The Skate. Doors open at 5:30PM and the events start at 6:00. Tickets are available in advance for $5.00 and $8.00 on the day of the event. All minors are required to be accompanied by an adult, and front row seating is for 18 years old and older only, do to the possibility that peoples in the front row face the real possibility of having full grown derby girl land in their lap.
