Daze of Derby returns for full day of roller derby action in Chilliwack

NWO Roller Girls hosts its annual free event with nine roller derby teams on two tracks

If you’ve ever wanted to see roller derby live, you’ll have a chance to watch it for free at the Landing Sports Centre this weekend.

Chilliwack’s flat-track roller derby league, NWO Roller Girls, is hosting its annual Daze of Derby on Saturday. It’ll be a full day of hard-hitting roller derby action on two tracks with nine teams from throughout B.C. and Washington State.

The whistle for the first game blows at 9:30 a.m. The day will feature a mix of 16 shorter 20-minute bouts, eight full-length games, and three open scrimmages. Most games will be all women playing, but there will also be some co-ed scrimmages.

Catch NWO in action at 10 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 12 p.m., 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.

And for those who have no idea how the game is played, don’t worry. An announcer will be explaining the derby action to spectators all day long.

Additionally, there will be food trucks, raffle prizes, a 50/50 draw and a vendor village.

NWO Roller Girls Association is made up of two adult teams — Wolfpack and The Outsiders — plus its NWO Junior Roller Derby league which features the TNT Juniors (ages eight to 11) and the Honey Badgers (ages 12 to 18).

Daze of Derby is Saturday, Nov. 9 at the Chilliwack Landing Sports Centre (45530 Spadina Ave.). Doors open before 9 a.m. Games go from 9:30 a.m. until about 7 p.m. Admission is free.
