Tri-City Thunder is the Tri-City Roller Girls’ travel team, originally formed at the end of 2008 during the league’s first season. In December of 2010, Tri-City was accepted as full members into the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). Thunder is the league’s Charter Team whose roster is comprised of dedicated and skilled skaters from all 3 of the league’s home teams (the Vicious Dishes, the Venus Fly Tramps, and the Total Knock-Outs) as well as two amazing coaches we couldn’t do without.
Thunder travels Canada and the US playing other WFTDA Charter teams and is ranked internationally. For 2013, with a lot of fresh new talent on the team, Thunder is hoping to continue to rise up in the rankings. Be sure to hit up our events page to keep up with Thunder’s games as well liking us on Facebook.

The Vicious Dishes
SKATE & DESTROY!
Once upon a time in the Tri-City Area of Southwestern Ontario, a roller derby team was born and they were named the Vicious Dishes. The Vicious Dishes (Vitiosus Bellus) are an uproarious lot, who travel in packs and have a tendency to hip check things that need not be hip checked (see: vending machines, skateless humans, any door ever) when frustrated, happy, excited or just for the hell of it. While sightings of these ferocious ladies are rare, search long and wide and you might just find them lurking around your local skate park at night, taking home the head of a Beast, knocking you over in a mosh pit or spray painting inappropriate things about your mother on the wall of a dark alley. One thing is for certain with The Vicious Dishes – they are relentless and meeting them on the track will end in your total obliteration.
