Are There Any Restrictions?

The only restriction is that you do have to be over the age of 18. If you are interested in lacing up a pair of skates and jumping into the world of roller derby, then grab a mouth guard, and make plans to attend the meet and greet with current skaters. The meet & greet is happening January 3, 2023, beginning at 6:30 pm at Skateworld in Evansville located at 1300 Fairfield Drive on the city's east side.

More About Roller Derby

Two teams of 15 - that's 120 skate wheels by the way - compete on the track for each jam. That's what you call a round or session in Roller Derby. Each team has a Jammer. You can spot them by the large star on their helmet. To score a point, the Jammer has to lap members of the other team and it can get intense as they try to make their way through the other skaters. Roller Derby is a full-contact sport and sometimes things can get pretty brutal. If you've never been to a Roller Derby bout, the intensity of the skaters is like nothing you've ever seen.

You can find out more about Demolition City Roller Derby by visiting the Demolition City Roller Derby Facebook page.
