Welcome to the Blog Party!

This is my blog. There are many like it, but this one is mine...

Hey everyone, it’s Jukes. I just want to welcome you all to the blog party. I’ve wanted to start a blog for a while now. However, I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to write about, or if I had anything worthwhile to share. All I really knew, was that I enjoyed writing. I would never classify myself as a writer; I would say that I’m the kind of person who often ends up sharing advise and making people laugh via email or text. Ultimately, I always knew I wanted to write about something positive, and wanted to share that positivity with other people.

I see starting a blog as an opportunity for personal growth. It's a chance to hear from people with similar or differing o

We Got Goals Y’all

Hello everyone, It’s Jukes and Richard again. As promised, at the end of Jukes' About Me post, we're back to give you all the low down on what some of our goals are at DerbyListing. First off, it is important for you all to know what the purpose is at DerbyListing.com.

DerbyListing is dedicated to providing skaters with an up to date list of all of the roller derby teams in the world. We strive to be a resource that skaters can use for their own analytical curiosities and research purposes. By doing so, we hope to foster a more connected roller derby community. 

A few goals that fall in line with this purpose are:

  • Maintain our list of derby teams (adding/retiring teams as needed)

  • Provide an easy to use interface

  • Promote our resource to

About Me: The Jukes on You

Hello! I’m Jukes, and I’ve teamed up with Richard Hurton to help spread the word about the wonderful world of Roller Derby and to assist in giving you all an up to date and useful product. Richard has poured his heart and soul into making the most detailed and most inclusive list of roller teams from all over the world, and he does it because he enjoys doing it. I’m ridiculously excited to work on this project with him and hope it brings more connectivity and positivity to the derby community.

So, as titled, here’s a little about me. I first heard of roller derby back when the movie Whip It came out. Yep, I was one of those people that heard “roller derby” and immediately thought of Whip It. I will not lie though, I absolutely loved that

About Me: Richard Hurton

I am Richard Hurton. Well, that's my current derby name, at least.

I first heard about the resurgence of roller derby around 2003 via the Comedy Central show Insomniac with Dave Attell. I honestly didn't think much of it. Looked like fun, but there wasn't any roller derby in my town so I promptly forgot about it.

Then in 2006 my partner and I moved to the MidWest. She had reconnected with a highschool friend (thanks, Facebook) who conveniently lived at the half way point for the cross country move. I only mention this friend, because she was gung ho for roller derby, and was a skater on her local team. It got my partner excited to learn more about roller derby. Unfortunately, the small town we moved to didn't have roller derby... so afte
