About the Derby Terrorz Roller Derby League. 

Established in 2011, Terrorz Roller Derby is Columbus, Indiana’s only flat track, skater owned and operated women's roller derby league. Our goal is to bring roller derby to Columbus and surrounding small towns, to set a positive example for girls of all ages by showing them that women can be strong and independent, can balance work, family and social activities, can compete (and excel) in a male dominated sports world, and can build positive relationships with other women by playing a competitive sport. In 2016 the league voted to update the league name from Terrorz of Tiny Towns to simply Terrorz Roller Derby.
