OSWEGO — Port City Roller Derby will kick off its third home season by battling the Roc City Roller Derby B-Sides on May 25, in Crisafulli Rink.
Doors open at 5 p.m. with a 6 p.m. whistle for the opening bout, as the new Port City Roller Derby Lagoon Squad juniors, ages 10 to 17, take on Black Mamba Junior Derby. Port City’s Breakwall Bombshells and Rochester’s B-Sides should take the floor around 7:45.
In its 2012 season, Oswego County’s original roller derby team posted its second winning campaign with a 7-6 record.
With the return of a core of several seasoned veterans and an up-and-coming rookie class, Port City looks to improve on that mark in a season that features five home bouts as well as trips around New York state and into Canada.
Advance tickets cost $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 5 to 12, with children 4 and under admitted free.
Tickets can be purchased at the door but will cost $12 for adults. Advance tickets are available online at portcityrollerderby.org or from any PCRD league member.
Attendees interested in trackside seating are encouraged to bring their own chairs.
A portion of the proceeds will support the H. Lee White Marine Museum.
Port City Roller Derby is produced by Oz Roller Girls Inc., a member-run non-profit organization dedicated to athletic competition, empowerment and supporting its community. PCRD always seeks skaters, refs and other volunteers for its adult (18 and over) and juniors (ages 10 to 17) teams, and will provide training.
