Flat track roller derby is a fast-paced contact team sport that requires speed, strategy, and athleticism. The flat track version of the sport evolved in 2001, and has quickly grown to encompass more than 400 leagues worldwide. Join Fancy Nancy and other skaters from Charleston’s own Chemical Valley Rollergirls League as they discuss the history of the sport, exhibit roller derby gear, demonstrate some basic skills, and talk about the rules of the game. Roller derby is a sport that combines strength, endurance, hard hits, and high-level strategy, and it is fun for the whole family to watch. Don’t miss your chance to learn more about roller derby in the Charleston area!
