Chilliwack’s NWO Roller Girls are about to kick off their third season and growth continues to be the buzzword for the local organization.

The Roller Girls have announced two divisions of play within the NWO this season. The NWO Wolfpack will be the official travel team for NWO, while NWO Outsiders is the first house team. The separate designations will be playing against teams ranked similarly in their division according to Canadian Roller Derby Ranking. Both divisions will have home and away games representing Chilliwack.

In addition to these two divisions, the NWO Honey Badgers have a full season of junior roller derby lined up.

The NWO Roller Girls kick off the season officially on April 19 against the Bad Apple Betties in Kelowna with NWO Outsiders. The first home bout of the season is April 26 with NWO Wolfpack against Rated PG Rollergirls from Prince George.
