Derby Lite is a women's roller skating fun and fitness class offered to "women old enough to know better." Derby Lite offers classes at The ARC, 18 Chicago Avenue in Oak Park, through Oak Park and Forest Park's Park District programs, combining the excitement and fitness benefits of derby for an all around great work out.

Derby Lite is edgy, fun and all about empowering women. So when Derby Lite heard about the attacks on neighborhood women, they mobilized and decided to offer a self-defense class. This basic self-defense class will be offered on Saturday, June 11 from 1 to 3:30 p.m. at The ARC in Oak Park.
