In 2008 our founding members made it their mission to spread the infectious sport of Roller Derby wherever they went, contaminating all who thought they were immune to their hip checks, body blocks, and awesome jamming. We will continue this mission to expand our league, our teams, and our fans with this outbreak of DERBY FEVER!!
Sick Town Derby Dames is a 501c3 non-profit organization committed to providing people of the mid-Willamette Valley with the opportunity to participate in roller derby at the amateur level while also experiencing a welcoming, strengthening, and accepting environment for of self-improvement.
Sick Town is also committed to supporting the surrounding community through active participation in local events, volunteering for benevolent causes, and hosting charities at our sporting events.
WHAT IS ROLLER DERBY?
Roller derby is a contact sport played by two teams of five members skating counterclockwise around a track. The Sick Town Derby Dames play flat track derby and are part of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association.
A roller derby game is called a bout. A bout is divided into two 30-minute periods, each 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!

THE LEAGUE IN THE COMMUNITY
The Sick Town Derby Dames provide a fun athletic outlet for members of the community in addition to a positive, inclusive social environment. Our league members come from a variety of backgrounds and include (but are not limited to) artists, moms, students, teachers, business owners, and other full-time working professionals. We frequently partner with local charities and businesses for fundraising and outreach opportunities.
We provide roller skating lessons for adults hoping to become derby players or referees, as well as those who would like to like to learn how to skate for fun or exercise! 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 league practices in the Lake Park Roller Rink on Hwy 99, just north of Corvallis. Our bouts are held at the Linn County Fairgrounds in Albany. Our bouts are family friendly events. Kids 5 & under also get in free at each home bout.
