Roller Derby Season is Here!

Wham, bam, thank you slam! The Nipissing Roller Derby league is rolling up for a season of entertainment and cannot wait to bring out some big hits, fast feet, and a dose of healthy competition.

 With derby names like: Jo-WHAMMM and Snarlie Brown, these skaters will be zipping around the track this summer trying their best to represent Nipissing to opposing teams from across Ontario.

 "We know that families are looking for new experiences this summer that's both affordable and fun," said Ginger Snapz, Events Coordinator, Nipissing Roller Derby.

 The league's season opener is a double-header Saturday May 4th at the Armour Ryerson & Burk's Falls arena. Game 1 is the Nipissing's Bombshell Bobbers taking on Guelph's Killer Uprising. Game 2 is an open scrimmage between Rebel Alliance and the Northern Empire. Doors open at 1:30pm and the bout starts at 2:00pm. $10 entrance fee for adults and kids 12 and under are FREE.

 The arena has limited seating, so we recommend bringing lawn chairs. You'll also have the advantage of getting closer to the action and finding a spot to sit beside the track. Most importantly, bring your booming voices to cheer on your favorite skaters.

 With 3 local events this season, there's plenty of opportunity to see a roller derby event near you. Save the date for the next events:

● June 22, 2024 - Double header at the Bill Barber Outdoor rink in Callander. Nipissing’s Bombshell Bobbers vs. Durham Region Roller Derby Select Team and Nipissing Roller Derby Fresh Team vs Durham Region Roller Derby Fresh Team.

● September 14, 2024 - Callander Northern Exposure Scrimmage at the Bill Barber Outdoor rink.
