AS REAL
AS IT GETS

Home to the oldest and largest Roller Derby league in Canada, Edmonton is famous for being a star making machine on the derby circuit. It is also famous for having a large junior league where girls as young as seven can strap on the skates and give ‘em hell.

 

The athletes in roller derby are a sisterhood that support each other unconditionally. If you are big or small, young or old, cis, queer or transgendered, you are accepted. It is a sport as diverse as the city.

 

Derby attracts a gang of women that invent their own super hero identities. Hair, makeup, and costumes allow for total reinvention as they enter the circle of smash.
