Founded in 2008, the West Coast Derby Knockouts promotes the sport of roller derby by creating an inviting forum and confortable environment for skaters at all skill levels that fosters confidence, athleticism, and fortitude. Not only will women develop and perfect derby skills, they will create life-long relationships with teammates. By creating a strong foundation based upon teamwork, and most of all, a love for the sport, West Coast Derby Knockouts hope to transcend local competition and become contenders on both national and worldwide levels, all while sustaining the aforementioned values.
The West Coast Derby Knockouts is an all-female flat-track roller derby league based in beautiful Ventura, California. It is made up of teachers, bartenders, students, mothers, and grandmothers. The West Coast Derby Knockouts takes pride in upholding a family-friendly style of roller derby; our goal is to promote fitness and friendship through every hip check and knee slide, while empowering women of all ages, shapes, and sizes. We believe that in order to play like athletes we must train like athletes, and the West Coast Derby Knockouts incorporates both on-skate and off-skate training to benefit skaters at all levels. Even though we are an all-female league, we love and welcome the support of family members, significant others, and even derby kids! If you are interested in being a part of the fastest growing sport in America, you can find the West Coast Derby Knockouts rolling around the floor at Skating Plus! Come join our family!
