Raleigh, N.C. — The Out & About team caught up with the Carolina Rollergirls before their season opener a few weeks ago, and we met a group of strong women who love the sport for many reasons (including hitting other players).
Roller-derby bangs into Dorton Arena Derby is more than just hitting. It's blocking, teamwork, endurance and speed. While the sport is definitely hard work, the Carolina Rollergirls all love what they do.
Through intense workouts and after-practice dinners, the team has become very close, even though the women come from diverse backgrounds. Just like their motto, these women are "smart, strong and amazing."
The Carolina Rollergirls' next bout is Saturday, April 20, at Dorton Arena in Raleigh. Be sure to check them out!
