Welcome to Austin Welcome to Austin, Texas for the Flat Track Derby Championship Tournament. The skaters, staff, and wonderful fans of flat track derby are making this sport into something that isn’t going away; it is only getting stronger. Texas Rollergirls has seen it in our own evolution and it’s echoed in the development of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association and roller derby around the world. I never thought this day would come in my skating career. I thought I’d be long retired before there were so many competing teams in the USA, before kids were playing Junior Derby, before flat track went international, before it was a sport on TV. When I started derby there was one league in Austin with 60 skaters. Today leagues came from sea to shining sea for this tournament and there are almost 10,000 skaters worldwide. When I started derby girls fixed their makeup and fishnet garters before skating. Today we fix our wheels, matching each wheel to each surface, with each nut perfectly tightened, and still have time to fix our makeup. When I started derby we were advised to clip our nails before a game so we wouldn’t scratch each other. Today there are 7 + refs per game giving ‘advice’ to keep us from scratching each other. When I started derby my team’s favorite strategy was to throw a fight at a crucial point in the game. Today my team’s favorite strategy is... well, buy me a drink and ask me Sunday night when the games are done. I can’t wait to see where y’all take me tomorrow! Thanks to everyone who helped put this tournament together and biggest thanks to Tournament Committee member Bloody Mary who allowed me to work by her side for the last six months and pretend to be Chair of the Tournament Planning Committee. Thank you for coming! Thank you for skating! Thank you for supporting! Thank you for cheering! Welcome to the Texas Shootout, where we love ya ‘til it hurts! Lucille Brawl Tournament Chair

WFTDA Championship Tournament

All About WFTDA

I knew this would happen. Get a bunch of smart ladies in a room together, they’re bound to come up with some far-flung plan for world domination, especially these ladies. Nothing’s ever good enough for them. It’s not enough fun to roller skate, they want to hit their friends. Hitting their friends isn’t enough, they want to hit strangers. Hitting strangers isn’t enough, they want a trophy for hitting the best. The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association is beyond proud to be represented by every skater and official on the track – these ladies and gentlemen (and many more) are the lifeblood of the WFTDA, the brain trust and decision makers of flat-track roller derby. Our three-plus years of hard work culminates this weekend; our dream comes true as our sport develops. I’m beyond proud to represent the WFTDA during this dynamic time. On behalf of us all I’d like to thank the fans and skaters for witnessing this event and wish the competitors (and refs) the best of luck. Volunteering to direct a flat-track roller derby tournament is like Karmic gold – buy Lucille Brawl some new Swiss Bones and maybe some of it will rub off on you. And as for those Texas Rollergirls: you know, this is all your fault. It’s only appropriate that you should host the first WFTDA Championship Tournament, considering what you got us all into. We love YOU way past hurtin’. I know what’s going to happen next, too............................Turn Left! Crackerjack President, WFTDA 2008 WFTDA Tournaments, AUTUMN 2008 Western Regionals- Houston, TX Eastern Regionals- Madison, WI 2008 Championships- Portland, OR Founded in 2004, the WFTDA promotes and fosters the sport of women’s flat track derby by facilitating the development of athletic ability, sportswomanship, and goodwill among member leagues. The governing philosophy is “by the skaters, for the skaters.” Women skaters are primary owners, managers, and operators of each member league and of the association. Operational tasks include setting standards for rules, seasons, and safety, and determining guidelines for the national and international athletic competitions of member leagues. All member leagues have a voice in the decision-making process, and agree to comply with the governing body’s policies.

WFTDA Championship Tournament

Rules Overview Greetings from your stalwart referee crew, and welcome to the first-ever Texas Shootout! We were going to use this space to tell you a little bit about how the game of derby is played. You know, there are five players on the track from each team, one of them is the jammer, she wears a star, yadda yadda yadda. But then we remembered that you’re here at the dadburn Nationals, and you probably already know a thing or two about the greatest sport going on today. So instead, we’re going to go over a few of the lesser-known rules of roller derby -- things you may have seen in action before but didn’t quite understand at the time. Leeeeeeead Jammer! (Or Not) A relatively new concept in the most recent WFTDA ruleset (2.1.1) is that a jammer becomes ineligible for lead if she goes out of bounds for *any* reason before she closes to within 20 feet of the pack. This means that jammer-on-jammer action right off the starting line can be a strategic move if a team is trying to ensure that their opponents can’t nab that all-important lead jammer status. Look to see some of the more physical jammers try to take advantage of this! Once a jammer gets to within 20 feet of the pack, going out of bounds no longer makes her automatically ineligible for lead, but she still must eventually get past all opponents legally and in-bounds to become lead. Dude, Where’s My Star? One of the rarer plays you may see employed at the Texas Shootout is the “star pass” -- in which a jammer passes her helmet cover to her team’s pivot. Once the pivot gets the helmet cover on, she takes over the role of the jammer for the rest of the jam, while the original jammer switches to pivot! Teams might employ this maneuver to salvage some points with an exhausted jammer, or maybe just as a surprise to catch the other team sleeping. But it can be a risky move for the star-passing team, too: -- The star must be handed off directly from the jammer to the pivot, not thrown or passed via other teammates. -- Only the status of jammer can be passed, not the status of *lead* jammer -- if a lead jammer removes her helmet cover, she automatically forfeits lead jammer status for the rest of the jam. -- If the helmet cover is dropped during the pass, only the original jammer or original pivot may pick it up, and they must skate in the normal direction to retrieve it. Since a jammer can’t score points unless she’s wearing that helmet cover, a dropped star can be a real liability! Musical Jammers Sometimes, jammers are naughty, and they have to go sit in time-out. On occasion, though, both jammers are naughty at around the same time, and they both end up in the penalty box at the same time. Of course, with no jammers out on the floor, there can’t be any scoring, and where’s the fun in that? So there’s a special procedure when a jam suddenly becomes jammerless: the jam immediately ends, and a new jam begins with the same skaters. Each jammer gives her helmet star to a teammate already on the track, and those teammates become the jammers in the following jam. Meanwhile, the original jammers serve out their penalties as normal, rejoining play as blockers once their penalty ends. With no substitutions allowed, this can really change the nature of a jam if a blocker is suddenly forced into surprise jamming duty!

It’s Not Over Till It’s Over With the level of competition you’ll be treated to in this national tournament, it’s quite possible that you’ll see one of the most exciting happenstances in roller derby (and there are a lot to choose from): overtime! So far in this year’s WFTDA tournament play, there’s already been one overtime game, a thrilling 104-99 victory for Detroit over Boston in the first round of the Heartland Havoc Eastern Regional. If the teams are tied up at the end of the 60 minutes of regulation, a single overtime jam determines the winner. No lead jammer will be declared, so the jam will go the full 2 minutes! Since there can be no lead jammer, jammers start scoring on their *first* trip through the pack, not the second. Penalties are called as normal, but you can bet that won’t stop the action from getting a bit chaotic! If the teams are still tied after that jam, we’ll all take a very deep breath and do it again until we have a winner.

RatratCity All Stars city rollergirls est. 2004


n a world that was once peaceful and free, with unicorns and rollergirls and affordable beer, there is a terrible unrest. There is doubt spreading across the land. There is fear and confusion about just who rules at roller derby. Knowing something must be done, a team of derby warriors -- a coalition of the frightening, if you will -- will leave their secret invisible hideout at the top of Seattle’s Space Needle to embark upon a perilous journey into the very heart of darkness: Texas. They are green, and they are mean. They will destroy all others who call themselves the best, they will annihilate the naysayers and any others who would skate in their way, and they will prove, once and for all, that the NEW capital of roller derby is SEATTLE! There is one team that plays smarter, skates faster, hits harder than the rest! There is one team that looks better, smells better, and is significantly more fun at after-parties! There is one team ... ONE TEAM TO RULE THEM ALL ... the Rat City Rollergirls All-Stars!

Roller Warriors kansas city roller warriors est. 2005


he Kansas City Roller Warriors are the angry, mutant, love child of Dirty Britches, Brooke Leavitt, and Princess Anna Conda, Mandy Durham. The initial idea for the league was born in the spring of 2004 inspired helped by the Texas Rollergirls, Leavitt semi-jokingly suggested the idea of forming a Kansas City roller derby league. After a brief discussion the girls decided it was an idea worthy of pursuit. Since then the Roller Warriors have went on the capture the hearts and admiration of fans during the 2006 Dust Devil. After taking a year and beefing up the KC All Star team with the help of Coach Death and instruction from a new coach, Coach Ice, the All Stars took on Dust Devil 07. As the underdogs in the west, the KC Roller Warriors All Star reigned supreme and took forth to secure their spot at Nationals. Again, Kansas City Roller warriors promise to capture your heart....and skate all over it until it BLEEDS!!

WFTDA Championship Tournament




nlike most band stories, the story of the LOWER CLASS BRATS did not start out “innocently enough”. It was more like a full-blown attack on their local music scene. The war started in January 1995 in Austin, Texas when the BRATS set out to destroy all of the emo, college and garage bands that had some how taken over their city. Many years, countless beers and drug additctions later, the boys are still waging war. Not just in their hometown though, with the help of fans world wide they’ve set out to take over the planet. In the time that the LOWER CLASS BRATS have been pounding out their own brand of Clockwork Punk they have released a fuck-load of recordings including appearances on several compilations, live DVD’s and soundtracks in two different films (nudge, nudge- wink, wink). In the past decade the BRATS have toured the globe. Mexico, Germany, North America, Canada, England, Japan, France and many, many other countries have witnessed the boys in action. And the LOWER CLASS BRATS don’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. From their first gig over ten years ago, to this day- L.C.B. always steals the show.


Junior Roller Derby

he Tucson Derby Brats started out as a few kids devoted to roller derby who began skating together in February 2006 right after watching the 2006 Dust Devil, the first WFTDA National tournament held in Tucson, AZ. Over the past year and a half we have steadily gathered more and more devoted skaters and their families and currently have 24 active skaters, aged 10 to 17. Although we are an independent organization, we have received a lot of help and guidance from Tucson Roller Derby skaters all along the way, and when we aren’t skating we are working hard to help TRD in any way we can. Our two teams, the Green Scream and the Violet Femmes coached by TRD skaters Whiskey Mick and Penny Tencherry, played our first exhibition bout this past July during a regular season TRD bout. With a lot of training (and paper work) under our belts, our teams are ready to start a full season of our own this fall. Skaters from both teams are here in Austin as the Tucson Saddlebrats. A lot of people have worked hard to help us make it here, and we are looking forward to having a blast playing Brat City from our sister league this weekend. Together the Seattle Derby Brats and the Tucson Derby Brats have formed the JFTDA, the Junior Flat Track Derby Association. Other member JFTDA leagues include the Orange County Derby Brats, the LA Derby Brats, and others. There are more “Derby Brats” JFTDA leagues in process all over the country working together to ensure a vital future for Roller Derby.
