We are proud to announce, the Chick Whips will be traveling to Colorado to compete in JRDA Championships!
The Chick Whips are rolling into our 7th season!
We have been growing steadily and strong and have some exciting news to share with our fans. In our six seasons we grew from just a little team that has a boot camp with 8 little girls to now a GIANT team that supports over 40! To give our players all the support they need we have split into two internal teams. Whiplash and Hip Chicks!
We are still the Chick Whips, but we decided to split the teams to focus more on the level of the players. If you have ever played roller derby you know it can be difficult to have skill levels mixed. The Coaching staff are looking to challenge our more advanced girls with heavy strategy, hard work, and excelled practices. For our beginner skaters we still introduction of play and conditioning.
Whiplash – Our Advanced team is made up of players whose goal is to play on the JRDA Charter and bout both in sanctioned and unsanctioned level 3 play. They are competitive, hard working and experienced. They play at a Level 3 JRDA, once they pass skating skills and written tests, and are in good standing with the team they are considered for our Charter. Hip Chicks – are our beginning to intermediate team. They range from absolute beginners who are learning to skate to skaters who have already completed a season of learning and are working to level 2 of JRDA play. This gives Hip Chicks time to grow in a safe environment without pressure of a more competitive nature.
Both teams have a huge season before them.
Come be a part of it!

This is Topeka’s only Junior Roller Derby team – the Chick Whips! This team is made up of young skaters, ages 8 – 17. They practice twice a week at Sk8away in Topeka so drop by and take a look at your future roller derby athletes in action!
The league started during the summer of 2011 as a summer derby boot camp. After the 5-week boot camp was over we expanded to having 3-month sessions with a few weeks for a break between each session. Drop us a line if you are interesting in games or scrimmages!
We practice on one weekday early evening and on Saturday mornings. Check our practice schedule for complete details.
