The Texas Rollergirls Recreational League, the Rec-n-Rollerderby™ is an athletic and social organization formed to give all women the opportunity to learn and play the sport of Flat Track Roller Derby. In the spirit of a recreational organization, it offers a fun, safe, and competitive athletic environment without the level of commitment or skill that are required of derby athletes at the national level.
The Texas Rollergirls Recreational League is open to any and all interested women 18 years and older who are not currently skating for the Texas Rollergirls or any other roller derby league. This may include retired Texas Rollergirls skaters, skaters who one day aspire to tryout for the Texas Rollergirls, and skaters who are just interested in learning and playing roller derby while having a great time doing it!
In 2006,a group of moms got together to form an all-mama amateur roller derby league, the Austin Roller Moms. The league started with nearly 20 skaters, many of whom continue to skate with the Rec-n-Rollerderby today.
In 2007, the Austin Roller Moms joined forces with the Texas Rollergirls to form the Rec-n-Rollerderby. The Austin Roller Moms was dissolved in order to become part of the Texas Rollergirls Recreational League and the scope of the league was broadened to include a wider variety of women. The 2007 season had approximately 30 skaters competing in the recreational league.
From 2008 to today, the Rec-n-Rollerderby has continually grown in size and training. The program has more than doubled in the number of participants, skates almost 10 months per year, and has practices designed to accommodate four different skill levels.
