If the longest you can skate in a game is two minutes, why are we testing how many laps you can skate? That's not what you do. Test direction change, hit recovery, fall recovery, impact absorption, height change. Test roller derby players, not speed skaters.

Reminder for folks watching : These officials took 4 days off to get to a remote spot to officiate games that are mostly non-regulation, and so don't count for a lot of things. They deserve a ton of credit.

I started roller derby cause I was like, “this might be fun!” And now I’m out here living a healthy lifestyle, eating healthy, sleeping well, and exercising!? What the hell!?

Can we stop calling 27/5 or 11/2 or whatever lap/time measurement "endurance" ??? It's not endurance. Those are not long enough time periods to be endurance -- it's a speed test for a sport where the pack often times won't even make it a full lap in 2 minutes!

Things I want to see off the tourney circuit in 2020: victim blaming, slut shaming, deadnaming, racists, off color comments being “how they are”, official bashing, skater bashing, showing up contagious, national anthems, coconut La Croix. I think we can do this.

You know what, a bunch of other people have said good things about the 27/5 and being not-skinny but I would like to also share my opinions and feelings and experiences. Because I got a lot of feelings. Let's have a (far too long, sorry) thread,

I like the idea of going to RollerCon but I don’t know if I’d let myself enjoy it. What (if I went) would you suggest I do whilst there? I’m not super social on my own.

I just told my coaching committee that we need to modify our 27/5 requirements to some different. Let's see how it's received. Wish me luck and hope they don't disown me.

Shout-out to all the small rural team skaters out there- don't let that hold you back!! No one on Team Montana has ever played at the D1 or D2 level! Our two WFTDA teams are currently ranked between 160-200. Grit and determination can go a long way. 🙌

Just saw this in a group. PASS IT ON! "News Flash: If you are part of a WFTDA league, please have your league representative get on the forum. There is a vote open about changing lap requirements!" DOOO IIIITTTTT!

FIVE YEARS AGO TODAY I PUT ON THE ROLLY SHOES! Notice my really cool LONG SLEEVE stripey shirt I thought was cool and “rollergirl” 😭😂 but for real I would be so lost if this sport hadn’t come into my life. Roller derby has brought me so much more than I can say.

Did the announcer just utter the phrase “10 year veteran skater, they’re 21 years old” Y’all aged up juniors, I’m simultaneously impressed and terrified

26 3/4... trying not to feel defeated, but, yeah, I feel defeated. A QUARTER of a lap stands between me and a fresh meat bout I want to do so badly. I’m not sure if I could be more frustrated with myself. Curse this test!

Hey , just so you know, French derby is going through a crisis right now and I think it serves everyone to remember just how horrible abuse and violence and indifference can be. This is the first of a looong series of tweets. CW for mentions of violence and rape.

Just imagining a world where instead of 27/5, you’re not allowed to scrimmage or bout until you can legally knock over the strongest blocker in your league by yourself. You know...for safety.

Here's a relevant thread going around . Perhaps the answer is change the WFTDA policy?

Remember that content warnings protect those of a who’ve been through simialr situations to that in France from having to read precise accounts of abuse before we are ready! Thanks,
