The sport of roller derby is a wonderful way to build endurance, strength, and close friendships. Tune in to WPSD Local 6 on July 18th to see a segment about our very own local roller derby teams, West KY Rockin' Rollers and WKRR's Junior Team. Learn about how this not-for-profit sport league attracts skaters of different ages and professions, donates to local causes and charities through fundraising events and bouts, and what they have coming up in the near future. A "Meet and Greet" downtown Paducah on Saturday, August 9th, and a home bout at Kingsway Skateland on Saturday, August 16th, are a just a few things happening next month.

2014 Bout Schedule
Bouting season is here again and we're excited to share some dates for 2014! There will be more dates and venues added once confirmed. Also, if you travel to nearby bouts and mixers to watch other teams play, you're likely to catch some of our talented skaters on the track. The occasional opportunity to join forces with skaters from other teams is a fun, great way to grow as a skater, and also........one can never have "too much" roller derby in their life! We appreciate the the wonderful support everyone has given WKRR over the past few years and look forward to seeing everyone this season. If your team is interested in scheduling a bout with the West Kentucky Rockin' Rollers, please contact Barba Fett for information.
