Roller derby growing with NWO

The NWO Roller Girls are expanding, putting three teams in place for the 2014 roller derby season.

The NWO Roller Girls are making significant changes as they head into their third roller derby season.

The Chilliwack-based group has seen membership grow to the point where they’ll have two teams this year. The NWO Wolfpack will be a traveling team and the NWO Outsiders will be a house team.

Both divisions will include home and away games against teams of similar calibre, based on Canadian Roller Derby rankings.

The Outsiders get started April 19 with a road bout in Kelowna against the Bad Apple Betties.

Their 2014 schedule includes dates with the Doomsday Bunnies and Rinx Minx.

The Wolfpack open at home April 26, taking on the Rated PG Rollergirls from Prince George.

Among the teams on their schedule: the Raggedy Rollers, Margarita Villains and Revelstoke Derailers.

The NWO umbrella also includes a junior team called the Honey Badgers.

They open on the road April 19 facing two teams, the Candy Crushers and Training Wheels.

They’re home April 26 to face the Spruce City Derby Brats (Prince George).
