ABOUT THE ITHACA LEAGUE OF WOMEN ROLLERS
Since organizing in 2008 the Ithaca League of Women Rollers has grown into a league of more than 40 adult skaters. In 2010 they started a junior league of girls age 8-17. ILWR is one of 259 member leagues that make up the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, and is currently ranked 73. The league was founded and supported entirely through the efforts of non-paid skaters, officials, and volunteers. For more information, visit www.ithacarollerderby.com.
Ready for a roller derby style workout? We have a weekly Wednesday session for you. New or returning skaters are welcome!
Recreational Roller Derby is every Wednesday from 7-8:30 pm. In October the wReck program will go on hiatus and the recruitment program for the 2016 season starts.
Wreck Derby is a chance to learn the basic skills of flat-track roller derby. This is a perfect way to learn the game if you are considering trying out for our league next year, or just for some great exercise. We’ll cover the basics and skip the bone-crushing hits! You learn the game with some modified blocking rules. Come skate, and make some amazing new friends!!

“She has been my coach in the juniors for the past three years, so I look forward to using the skills I learned from her when I play with her” but “if I shout ‘mom!’ when I’m skating, she might correct me by saying “Ahem, that’s Captain Fanny to you!”
