The Downriver Roller Dollz are the local derby team/league in the Downriver Area and is made up of a highly motivated group of women who live and work in the Downriver Detroit area.
They have practices here several times a week, and events monthly which are full-contact. Yes, that means blocking and checking, and some of the hits are pretty darn brutal. However, it is fun to watch, family-friendly, and a great sport to enjoy from both a spectator perspective and even more so as a participant.
They are always looking for new team members, and if you think you can hack it, visit their website for upcoming Boot Camps to come to and see if you have what it takes.
