WHO ARE WE!?
WE ARE THE Molly Roger RollerGirls!
We are a competitive, full-contact, flat track roller derby league from Melbourne, FL. We are a diverse group of people making up an All Star Womens Roller Derby Team, an All Star Mens Roller Derby Team, a competitive Co-ed Roller Derby Team, and two Home teams. We are dedicated to bringing the enjoyment of roller derby to our hometown and the world!
Born in 2007 of skaters, refs, NSO’s , and volunteers, we’ve been going strong ever since, bringing in one of best seasons last year with a 10-2 record!
We are dedicated to our community, our sport, and each other. At most of our bouts we encourage our fans to bring donations for local charities like the ASPCA and local schools. Most importantly, we give women and men a place to fit in. We accept everyone as they are and WE HAVE A SPOT FOR YOU. Roller derby will save your soul and change your life! No matter what predicament you’re in, eight wheels and a rink can take you anywhere!
