Who are we?
We’re the Joint Base Lewis-McChord Bettie Brigade, that’s who! The Bettie Brigade is an all-female, player-run flat track roller derby league serving the Joint Base Lewis-McChord community. We’re a group of strong, independent women from within the military community who have found a home away from home on the track. We provide a compassionate and supportive environment for women who want to learn to skate, get in shape and have fun playing this fantastic sport!
What is roller derby?
Contemporary flat track roller derby is an All-American, fast-paced, full contact sport. Ten girls on eight wheels, hundreds of cheering fans – derby bouts are the new must-see family event at JBLM. Roller derby isn’t just about the athletes. The Bettie Brigade is here for the benefit of soldiers, families, and the military community.
Want to get involved? No previous skating experience required. (Seriously!)
The Bettie Brigade is actively recruiting skaters, referees, and off-skate volunteers. Come drop in and watch a practice or get tickets for our next bout. Check out our events calendar and contact us to find out how you can be a part of the Bettie Brigade.
