SFV Junior Roller Derby


SFV Junior Roller Derby is the San Fernando Valley's first and only junior roller derby league. 

Founded in 2011 by Killo Kitty, a 7-year roller derby veteran, and Coach Dad, a 25-year youth coach veteran, SFV Junior Roller Derby's goal is to create a safe place where young girls could develop and learn confidence, leadership, teamwork, athleticism, and a healthy lifestyle through the sport of roller derby.  

The SFV GNARLIES features junior skaters ages 7 to 17 in bouts and scrimmages in and around the Los Angeles area. Check out our Upcoming Events to see the Gnarlies in action!

  1. Skate with the knees bent and low. Remember: the taller you are, the less control you have! When in doubt, get lower!
  2. If you fall, get up quick! There is usually someone right behind you and we don’t want to trip anyone. And you can't play roller derby effectively from the ground. 
  3. Never EVER reach out and grab someone! If you feel like you're falling, grab your kneepads. If you do fall, fall small!
  4. Don’t be embarrassed when you fall. Derby is all about knocking each other over. If we have an ego about it, we won’t be able to absorb this wonderful game and all it has to offer. Every fall means you're getting better!
