|Description & Services|
A challenging, full-contact competitive sport with lots of trophies that usually come in the form of bruises, maybe the odd torn ligament, or broken ankles. Some compare the sport to playing rugby, only players are on roller skates, moving around a track counter-clockwise and wearing a helmet, knee and elbow pads and wrist and mouth guards.
By day they might be career women, moms and accomplished former athletes in other sports such as figure skating or snowboarding — or all of the above.
By night they go by names like Diva Slayer, Tara Rize, Tainted Shove and Pushy Cat and wear boutfits (costumes and makeup), ditching heels for wheels
There are fees as well as insurance and gear costs.
