Group Description

"Roller skating for fun & fitness for women old enough to know better."

THIS IS THE PRIVATE YAHOO GROUP FOR "DERBY LITE: ORIGINAL" MEMBERS ONLY. If you are a member of a park district program, there is a separate group for you.

Derby Lite was started in November 2007 by a former Roller Derby player and has been called a group, a class, a club, and a recreational league. Whatever you call it, we're just a bunch of women from their 20's to their 50's, most of whom haven't been on skates in decades, who get together to have fun, exercise, learn new skills, make new friends and skate ala Derby.

We don't put on bouts, but we do scrimmage amongst ourselves once certain skill requirements are met. Too many of us are working women & moms who can't accept the risk of serious injury, so we'll be keeping it lite contact.

Derby Lite: Original members are comprised of women who've been skating with us for a while, women with prior roller derby experience, or women who have moved up through our Derby Lite: Park District program and passed our skill level assessment.

Members are required to wear quad speed skates with grippy wheels, knee pads, wrist guards, elbow pads, helmet and mouth guard.

Thanks for checking us out. Drop a line to YourFriends@DerbyLite.org if you'd like to know more.
