About Us - Meet the Oly Rollers!
Who are the Oly Rollers?
The Oly Rollers are the first women’s flat track roller derby league from Olympia, WA. We were established in 2006 and were
admitted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA)
in April of 2008. We are the proud holders of the WFTDA Win Streak Record (22-0), and were the WFTDA National Champions in 2009. In both 2010 and
2011, the Oly Rollers proudly finished our season by earning 2nd Place in the Nation at the
WFTDA National Tournament.
The Oly Rollers are a skater owned and operated non-profit corporation. We are comprised of successful women skaters ranging
in age from 18 to 50 who endlessly practice the sport of roller derby in order to better ourselves and to create a strong,
successful league and community. When we’re off our skates, you can find us in the community as teachers, mothers, soldiers,
students, engineers and fire fighters (just to name a few). The Oly Rollers organization as a whole is comprised of motivated
and energetic women and men who volunteer endless amounts of time to the betterment of the league and to the wider
promotion of the sport.
What are people saying about the Oly Rollers?
"The Oly Rollers are about as close to a professional roller derby team as the sport can get."
- Tom George, The Seattle Examiner
"Oly just blew me, and pretty much everyone else, away. I’ve never seen a team with so many fast, strong and agile skaters who play so well together."
- Lauren Bishop, Cincinnati.com
"The secret is out. The Oly Rollers rule." - Gail Wood, The Olympian
