Subscribers will receive the latest issue via email as soon as it's published.

  • fiveonfive is excited to announce a new section on officiating!

    We know how involved and dedicated our officials are, so we want to give them their due. After all, we couldn't play our beloved sport without our officials. Officials have a lot to say ranging from “What is the best equipment?” to “How to get into your first tournament!” This is our opportunity to explore the possible answers to such questions, discuss trends in officiating within derby, and even look at basics like “What position is best to start with?” Standard Steviation from Lansing Derby Vixens has offered to help us with this section. He will be our officials section editor and is eager to help make these articles beneficial to everyone. If you are interested in writing for us on this topic, or just have ideas, thoughts, or comments, please contact
