Seven years after their inaugural exhibition bout at the Memorial Centre, Kingston Derby Girls is now three teams and 50 players strong. KDG just received its designation as a charter team in the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, making it a full member league of the biggest roller derby association in the world.
“What I love about roller derby is that there is a lot of action and it is fast paced. Even though it’s a full contact sport, there are a lot of rules and people don’t usually know that. I’ve been in roller derby for three years and you really get to meet a wide range of people.” – Sarah Reive
“We’re the oldest and most continual league in Kingston. Our designation with the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association is new and it’s a pretty big deal. I knew that after seeing Back 2 Cruel II I wanted to be a derby girl.” – Brooke Gilmour
The Kingston Derby Girls will be at Back 2 Cruel VII at the Memorial Centre on September 10.
