This is Topeka’s only Junior Roller Derby team – the Chick Whips! This team is made up of young women ages 8 – 17 who are hungry for roller derby! They practice twice a week at Sk8away in Topeka so drop by and take a look at your future women’s roller derby girls in action!
The league started during the summer of 2011 as a summer derby bootcamp. After the 5-week bootcamp was over we expanded to having 3-month sessions with a few weeks for a break between each session. We’ve have had three more sessions since then and three Interleague Bouts.
We are now in the next stage of our league development – moving to a year-round configuration with monthly dues. We are looking forward to many more skaters, volunteers, and fans to join us on this journey!
The girls have been together since the first session and have practiced very hard. They have honed their skating abilities – edging, blocking, stops, and strategies. They have learned the importance of teamwork. And they have shined during bouting with their camaraderie and hard work.
Most importantly, the girls have moved into hitting practices and bouting other teams from all around the Midwest. So drop us a line if you are interesting in bouting or scrimmages!
We practice on Tuesday or Thursday at 6PM and on Saturday mornings at 8AM. Check our practice schedule for complete details.
