The Chippewa Valley Roller Girls is Eau Claire’s original all-female flat track roller derby league. CVRG is managed and operated entirely by the skaters via an elected board of directors and numerous skater-led committees. We work together to make our practices and games happen and for the overall good of the league. Our skaters pay monthly dues in order to cooperatively cover costs, and pay for all their own equipment. During our season, we practice twice a week and have one to two games per month. During our off-season, the league focuses on recruitment, fundraising, and skills training. CVRG follows the guidelines and standards set forth by the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association http://www.wftda.com

Roller derby involves two teams of four blockers (the “pack”) skating counter-clockwise around an elliptical track, while a point scorer from each team (the “jammer”) tries to skate her way through. The jammer gains a point for each opposing player she passes. Tripping, throwing elbows, head-butts, and fist-fighting are illegal - but spine-crunching shoulder shots, hip checks, and booty blocks are all allowed.
