The idea of roller derby in Great Falls initially started in 2010 when a group of friends were hanging out and wanted something to do that wasn’t already happening, so the idea of roller derby was mentioned and started the ball rolling to find people interested in playing the sport of roller derby. Throughout 2010 and into early 2011 the members who brought about the idea of roller derby worked on their skating ability, learning how to play the sport, as well as the rules of the game in preparation of starting to play in bouts. In January of 2011 the Electric City Roller Grrrlz officially became a league and preparing to play bouts. Their first home bout was play in December 2011 to a sold out crowd at the Four Seasons Arena in Great Falls, MT as the Grrrlz play against Hel’z Belles from Helena, MT.
