Casper’s Deadly Ghosts are also excited to build excitement for the game of roller derby by introducing the ladies who play and talk about what they do outside of roller derby. “Roller derby has typically had a reputation of rowdy girls who don’t do much but bash into each other. In reality, women who play roller derby are extremely active in their communities. We have ladies with Master’s degrees, nurses, teachers, government employees, legal administrators, police officers, professional counselors, neurophysiologists, and women who stay home to raise their children” says Maiden Payne, a Nationally Board certified middle school teacher in the district. “The thing that amazes me the most is we come to practice to participate in this difficult sport after working long days in each of our professions. On top of it, many of these women participate in the league structure, operating on the board of directors for the team and in the different community events. Roller derby is like another full time job on top of work and family commitments. However, every women involved in roller derby wouldn’t have it any other way. CDG is really hoping to get the community to come out to see the amazing women who play this sport and to see the amazing players from all around who will be here.”
Venture out to the Fairgrounds Industrial Building and join this powerful group of skaters in the excitement of jukes, jumps, whips and wipe-outs!
Women’s roller derby is a full contact, aggressive, competitive sport played on traditional quad skates. In the past few years, the sport has experienced a worldwide explosion, with nearly 1,600 leagues popping up around the world.
