Since October 2010, the Bettie Brigade has provided a home away from home on the track for both our athletes and their families.  We provide a safe, compassionate, and competitive environment for women to learn the awesome sport of roller derby!  We also provide excellent opportunities for those who aren't interested in skating, but just love roller derby!

Learn to leave your signature bruise on an opponent!  We are always looking for new skaters, no experience required!  Come to a practice or one of our recruiting events. We also love volunteers, no skating required!

We are Bettie Strong

Make sure you know what we look like before you come see us fly around the track!  It might be difficult to pick us out when we're hitting, juking, and whipping each other around!  We are Bettie Strong and our photos prove it!
