Meet The Boutlaws – Western Sydney Rollers’ 2019 travel team

Western Sydney Rollers’ representative roller derby team is called The Boutlaws. The Boutlaws is a travel team that competes in the elite NSW 5×5 Roller Derby Competition.

The Boutlaws train hard so that they can fully enjoy playing in the 5×5 Roller Derby Championship. This year The Boutlaws will compete in the Battlegrounds class of the competition. They also look forward to meeting players from other leagues around the state, socialising at the Championship after party.

It takes time, dedication and expert skating skills to make it onto The Boutlaws. The players, Bench Managers and trainers must work together to achieve success in the mad-house that is roller derby.

The Boutlaws are bringing it to 5×5 in 2019!

Western Sydney Rollers’ representative team, The Boutlaws will take on the challenge of the 5×5 Roller Derby Championship in 2019.

The 5×5 Championship has three divisions and is THE representative event for roller derby teams in NSW. The Boutlaws will compete in the Battlegrounds division.

This posse of women is the toughest bunch of gals out west, and they’re aimin’ for some straight shooting and hard jamming as they take on the some of the sharpest posses of skater girls around.

Having competed in the tournament previously, 2018 left The Boutlaws wanting more with a mixture of veteran skaters and shiny fresh faces aiming to take out the Championship. The team will be led by experienced Bench Managing duo, Buzzkill and Bad Samaritan.

Stay tuned for The Boutlaws line-up soon!

Skater’s sweet style burns up the track

Jamming and blocking extraordinaire, Natty Longlegs has been weaving her magic on the track since early 2016.

Having seen a poster for Western Sydney Rollers’ intraleague grand final one year, it took Natty a couple of years to pluck up the courage to join – and boy, are we thrilled she did!

Fast forward to 2018 and Natty is burning up the track as part of the Boutlaws, the league’s representative team. It’s proving to be a fantastic year for #11, having attended Camp Skate earlier this year where she got to skate with elite derby coaches. She followed up Camp Skate with an even bigger highlight, playing 5 x 5 with the Boutlaws.

Natty said “It was a little terrifying for my first game back in round two, having broken my ankle in round one in 2017, but we played Maitland and they were a gorgeous team to play against so it was a lot of fun.”

Although she’s not a fan of the travel involved getting to Boutlaws’ games, Natty said the travel is more than outweighed by fun she has playing the games – something she puts down to the team itself.

A massive fan of Lady Trample, Natty’s next derby goal is to perfect the apex jump.

Outside of derby, Natty has a mean green thumb and she’s a cupcake queen – be sure to snap one up at our next game so you can enjoy Natty’s talents on and off the track.

Rollers ready to rumble!

Some of our fabulous league members recently starred in the Penrith Press, showcasing the league and its 10 year anniversary.

Looking fierce on the front page (!!) is one of the league’s founding members, Major Dil-Emma. Major Dil-Emma has been a source of inspiration throughout her time with WSR, tackling everything from training and bouting through to reffing and assisting on committees. Don’t be fooled by her war paint, Major Dil-Emma is super loyal when it comes to her team and her league.

Cut to the back page and you can meet more of our enthusiastic members and see why the sport of roller derby is so popular. With options for women, men, youngsters, skaters and officials; there is something for everyone in the sport of roller derby.

“It was always an inclusive sport for women; now it’s an inclusive sport for everyone,” – Major Dil-Emma

WSR is now recruiting… Take a chance, be fierce and join the family!

Love the Boutlaws? Vote now to help them win Thermoskin funding

Voting is now open for the Thermoskin Community Sports Fund!

Why is your vote important?Thermoskin

Roller Derby is a new sport and, as a result, heavily under-represented in all facets of the athletic world. Finding its roots in the feminism movement, it is a sport that encourages individual personal empowerment no matter your gender identity, sexuality, body type or skill level. No matter where you are at emotionally, mentally or physically, Western Sydney Rollers is an all-inclusive and supportive community.

Why the funds are needed

We are a self-funded league and have no major sponsors to assist with our running costs. Our women’s team is a competitve league in the B-division of women’s flat-track roller derby. Our league promotes fitness, inclusiveness and self-confidence in our members and the local community. We have been invited to attend a national competition in Adelaide (The Great Southern Slam) however many of our members are single mothers, students or have other reasons for financial hardship and will be unable to afford the costs of new equipment, uniforms, insurnce and travel costs required to partcipate in this tournament. Funding to obtain the required equipment will greatly alleviate the financial strain our representative skaters and coaches.

What’s in it for you?

Aside from the chance to help your favourite skaters to glory, you’ll be in the running to win a $200 EFTPOS gift card!
