Roller Derby double header

A much-anticipated rematch is set to roll Saturday, with the first bout of the night starting at 5 p.m. at Selkirk College.

West Kootenay Roller Derby League welcomes fans to bite into Season 6 with its first double-header of the season served up this weekend.

A much-anticipated rematch is set to roll Saturday, with the first bout of the night starting at 5 p.m. at Selkirk College.

Castlegar’s Dam City Rollers will look to defend their winning streak as they take on the Nelson Killjoys in a game that promises big hits and fancy footwork. These two teams battled it out for the Golden Boot in 2015, but the Dams prevailed.

The second half of the night will see the Rossland Trail Roller Girls facing off against Valley Brutality. Both teams have a combination of veteran and rookie players, which should make for a close game.

League players spent pre-season enhancing their overall skills to keep up with new WFTDA (Women’s Flat Track Derby Association)  skills testing. New expectations include 27 laps in five minutes, playing three scrimmages as a league, and collaborating with referees and officials to expand players’ knowledge of the rules of the game.

Come check out these talented women lay it all out on the track.

Tickets are $10 in advance at Central City Shoes in Castlegar or online at www.kootenayrollerderby.com or $15 at the door.
