Competition - Derby

Derby is prevalent in the U.S. with women, men, co-ed, and junior leagues utilizing one another to further expand the sport. Wihle it used to be predominately played on a flat track, more and more leagues are venturing to the banked track. Most derby leagues use a DIY (do-it-yourself) mindset as they are run by the skaters. It is common for practice leagues to participate in fundraising and community service projects.

Nebraska has two teams, the Omaha Rollergirls and the No Coast Derby Girls.
