Providence Roller Derby: Home Season Closes, Junior Season Opens

Another year is in the books for Providence Roller Derby as the home season comes to an end, but there’s something new and inspiring starting up this fall.

On Sat, Sep 16 at the West Warwick Civic Center, PRD’s Championship Double-Header will feature an opener with the Old Money Honeys vs. the Bay State Brawlers visiting from Massachusetts. Then it’s on to the championship bout and highly anticipated rematch of the Sakonnet River Roller Rats vs. the Mob Squad. Fans are still talking about their bout in August that ended with the Mob barely picking up two points to defeat the Rats 153-152. Will the Rats receive their revenge and take home the trophy, or will the Mob retain the gold yet again?

Just one week prior, PRD will host the meet and greet for its first ever Junior Roller Derby! This presents a great opportunity for children at a young age to not only play a sport, but to also learn team-building and connect with the RI community as a whole. They will be joining the ranks of JRDA: the Junior Roller Derby Association, whose mission “is to nurture bold self-confidence in youth by developing teamwork and athletic ability while treasuring individuality within a culture of integration, encouragement and service to others.”

If you are a parent or guardian looking to sign up the next future roller derby star, there will be a meet and greet on Sat, Sep 9 from 9 – 11am at Teamworks on 170 Jefferson Blvd, Warwick. The program runs every Saturday morning from Sep 23 to Oct 28 at the same location and time and only costs $100 per junior skater. Don’t worry if you can’t skate. They will be happy to teach and train the next generation of PRD. For more information, email juniors@providencerollerdery.com
