What people are saying

“Best Fringe Cincy Team to Watch in 2018: First rolled out in 2006, the Cincinnati Rollergirls are the Queen City’s first all-female, amateur, flat-track roller derby team, and for those interested in trading in their mainstream fandom for something more unique, these girls have you covered. All members of the team — including the coaches, referees and skaters -— are volunteers, and the team is primarily owned by the skaters themselves as the girls double as roller derby athletes and #girlbosses.”

“I have to go all out and give (the Cincinnati Rollergirls) an ‘A.’ I rarely lavish such praise, but this was a terrific night of amateur sport for me.”

“One of the tri-state’s most successful sports teams … is composed of a squad of highly dedicated and skilled athletes, and practices an incredibly physical sport …. I’m not talking about one of the area’s football teams, but rather Cincinnati’s all female roller derby league.”

“While I went hoping for a rowdy good time, I got more than I expected. It was the pure athleticism, the crazy endurance and strength and the crowd-pleasing campiness that kept me interested … Suffice to say there’s way more strategy than I realized, and it was that strategizing and team coordination that made the bout so exciting.”

“It was so wonderful to see strong, talented and gorgeous women being celebrated. There was a pretty sizable crowd cheering them on and frankly that’s not something women have enough of in these parts. We’re surrounded by testosterone-heavy sports in this city and it was nice to root on the ladies for a change! Plus, unlike most games in the testosterone jungle, WE won!”

“It’s 100% real, and 130% fun….The Bengals lose, the Reds are a toss up: the Cincinnati Rollergirls will entertain, whether they roll away in victory, or are carried out on a stretcher.”
