Mark your calendars for Sunday May 17, 2009. That’s when Maui’s FIRST All Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby team, the Maui Roller Girls, will host the bout that’s free and open to the public.
This is an all-ages event to be held at the Central Boys and Girls Club Outdoor Basketball Courts across from War Memorial at 2:00 p.m.
Started in February 2008 by “Killah Kelly”, the team began practicing with four girls and soon grew to 20+ girls skating anywhere they could on the island. From open skate nights to street skating, basketball courts to the National Guard Armory Puunene Parking Lot, the Maui Roller Girls were in search of a place to call home. Finally one year later, they’ve found a home with the Boys and Girls Club of Maui in Kahului.
The Maui Roller Girls are now providing all the hard hitting action of Derby to Maui for your entertainment. The women are a diverse group of Professionals, Moms, Nurses,
Bartenders and Teachers all brought together for the love of Derby, personal growth and camaraderie.
Hawaii’s own Roller Derby team the Warriors left the islands in 1967 and Honolulu and Maui have brought Derby HOME! Come down and bring the family, friends and kids to see some of Hawaii’s toughest female athletes compete.
