HistoryEdit

The league was founded by Jamie Garen, known as "Jme Jawbreaker", after she saw the sport played in Oklahoma City.[2] Enid developed strong links with the Oklahoma Victory Dolls, and by the start of 2011, the squad had twelve skaters and was focusing on finding a permanent venue for training and future bouts.[3] By 2013, it was playing against local rivals such as Oklahoma City Roller Derby, and had skaters from a wide variety of backgrounds.[4]

The league was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme in July 2012,[5] and became a full member of the WFTDA in June 2013.[6]

The team collapsed in November 2019 after many players, such as all-stars Redneck Renegade and Burnout Bandit left the team.
