WHAT IS ROLLER DERBY?
Roller derby is a contact sport played by two teams of five members skating counterclockwise around a track.
A roller derby game is called a bout. Each bout is divided into two 30-minute periods made up of a dozen or more jams. During jams, each team has one offensive player—called a jammer—on the track while the other players act as blockers. The jammer scores 1 point by skating past an opposing player. The team with the most points at the end of the bout wins!
Sick Town Derby Dames is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in Corvallis, Oregon. We are a skater-owned and operated flat-track roller derby league based in Linn and Benton counties.
We respectfully skate on the ancestral land of the Kalapuya represented today by the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians and the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and are committed to supporting the surrounding community through active participation in local events, volunteering for benevolent causes, and hosting charities at our sporting events.
Our league members come from a variety of backgrounds and include (but are not limited to) artists, parents, students, teachers, business owners, and other full-time working professionals.
Although we are part of WFTDA, all genders are welcome to learn to skate with us. We are happy to provide training opportunities for individuals seeking to become roller derby players through other governing bodies.
OUR BOARD & OFFICERS
As a non-profit organization, our board members and officers ensure the smooth operations of our league. Each year, league members vote to place dedicated skaters in these positions.
