CASHMERE — The warehouse is dimly lit, without heat and its edges lined with a motley collection of chairs and couches. Some 16 women orbit the center of the room on roller skates. Their shirts sport names like “Sock Her Mom” and “Hott Poppy-Rotzi.” The coach barks an order, and the women split into groups to practice blocking. One woman threads the pack. She throws her 5-foot-1-inch, 130-pound frame into an advancing opponent, countering their movements quickly and forcefully. The block is successful, and she throws her arms in the air triumphantly and lets out a laugh.

That would be Giggles.
