We have four active teams in our adult league at this time! The North Jetty Bettys and the Widow Makers are our home teams who only play games here in Humboldt. All the skaters in Humboldt Roller Derby play for one of the two home teams. All skaters also have the potential to make a roster for one of our two competitive teams, the Redwood Rollers and Humboldt Roller Derby (sometimes referred to as our "Competitive B Team"), who play against other teams at home and away. It’s impossible to list which skaters are on the competitive teams because the rosters have the potential to change with every game. Never having a guaranteed spot on the Redwood Rollers or the Humboldt Roller Derby team means that the skaters work hard to either keep their seat on the roster, or to take a seat from another player! Skaters must meet certain requirements to qualify for each game, including attendance, health and safely, volunteer duties, and performance. We also have an active junior league, the Redwood Saplings!
Also referred to as our “A” team, the Redwood Rollers are the top players in the league and our WFTDA charter team. Being a charter team means that we are sanctioned by WFTDA and ranked internationally against other league's charter teams! The Rollers play home and away games and tournaments. The Redwood Rollers roster is composed of the top skaters from the two home teams, the North Jetty Bettys and the Widow Makers!
Humboldt Roller Derby
Humboldt Roller Derby is a catch-all name for home and away games against other teams that are non-sanctioned, or not played for international rankings. Rosters for these games are composed of a mix of HRD skaters. Sometimes this team is referred to as the "Competitive B Team", although it can be made of a mix of new and veteran skaters. It is the breeding ground for players hoping to make the jump up to the Redwood Rollers roster, which creates a very competitive and driven team spirit! Skaters who play in these games also play for one of the two home teams, the North Jetty Bettys and the Widow Makers!
North Jetty Bettys
The North Jetty Bettys are one of our two home teams! They play at home and away. Every skater is assigned to a home team shorty after they graduate from training camp. Home teams create a sense of belonging but also foster a healthy competitive spirit!
The Widow Makers are one of our two home teams! They play at home and away. Every skater is assigned to a home team shortly after they graduate from training camp. Home teams create a sense of belonging but also foster a healthy competitive spirit!
