Continuity 

In one of the first locker room scenes Smashley Simpson has a taped up nose and two black eyes. In the next scene her nose is not taped and her black eyes have disappeared.
In the food fight scene, Iron Maven throws a french fry onto Bliss' face. Bliss pulls the fry off leaving a smear of ketchup and then tosses banana cream pie at Iron Maven. When Maven retaliates by dumping a chocolate shake onto Bliss' head, the fry is back on her face.
When Bliss finishes her last round in the first game she plays, she wears the star sash for being a jammer, then the game stops and she is shortly shown having an "honor round" without the sash, then has the sash again for the team reunion.
in the swimming pool scene you could see Page's underwear sticking out of her pantyhose and they are red, but later when she removed her pantyhose the underwear are gray.
During the championship game, Drew's character is the jammer (has the star sash on her helmet.) After scoring points, the team regroups and a different character is seen removing the sash and giving it to Ellen's character.

In the scene where the girls first start following Razor's play book, The last play they run is the Whip. Before any setup is done for this play that would let the crow know what was coming, the crowd is screaming "Whip It!"

Errors in geography 

There is a point in the film where Ellen Page's character opens the refrigerator and grabs the milk to drink. The milk is Meijer brand milk. There are no Meijer stores south of Indiana.

Factual errors 

At one point in the movie, the opposing team does a roundhouse punch and knocks down all the members of the team. Any type of violence in Roller Derby (punching, kicking, fighting) would get a player expelled from the game, but the opposing team doesn't face any such reprimanding whatsoever.
In several parking lots, multiple parked cars do not have front license plates. Texas requires cars to have front car license plates. But Michigan, where the film was shot, does not have front car license plates.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

In an early scene shot from the air, an interstate highway sign pointing the way to Austin has white arrows incorrectly pointing down instead of up. However, this appears to be an overhead sign from an interchange, indicating which lanes one should to use to get to Austin. It was likely borrowed and placed along an interstate in Michigan where the film was shot, to provide the effect that the characters were in fact on their way to Austin.

Revealing mistakes 

In the final bout scenes, a row of "dummies" watch the bout instead of actual people. The "dummies" are mixed in with the actual crowd but due to editing the row of "dummies" was not edited out.
Iron Maven's (Juliette Lewis) stunt double is obvious during several close-ups throughout the final match.
