Text Box: Quite simply put, Roller Derby is anyone and everyone and the Lethal Ladies are no exception.  Derby does not discriminate against skin color, religion, or culture.  They make their livings as accountants, clerks, police women, waitresses, business owners and range in age from 18 to well into their 60ís.  The only requirement of a derby girl is when they step onto the track they have to bring 100% and leave it all on the track when their done.  Only that will do and that is all these girls know how to do.  The hard work and practice that is expected of Roller Derby players has to be piled onto the work of their everyday lives.  A Derby Girlís life is filled with blood, sweat and bruises.  If you asked any player it itís worth it, they would probably smile and give you a whole hearted ďHell yeah!Ē
