Capital City Roller Girls

Posted: Updated:

It's a Thursday night at the National Guard Armory in Brandon.

Every week, the facility is taken over by the Capital City Roller Girls.

"One of the girls is a paralegal, some of them work at Spinal USA, government jobs.  It's not just rough-around-the-edges-girls that everybody thinks it is," co-owner Deeana Hall said.

They're all out here for one sole purpose, and that's to run each other over, and win.

"It's like football for girls," team member Pamela Graham said.

It's a game of juxtaposition.  The girls care about their outfits, but use their nicknames to further their mission of pulverisation.

Intimidation and pain aside, the girls say there's a greater purpose to the game they play.

"I was so proud of myself, it was such a sense of accomplishment and I was just really happy that I didn't let the fear prevent me from trying it out the first time," co-owner Trisha Morace said.
