Roller derby doubleheader Saturday

Brick House Betties junior team, Stone Cold Stellas, makes debut at Sports Centre

The local roller derby season begins this Saturday, May 10 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.

A doubleheader event hosted by the Brick House Betties will debut the Betties’ junior derby team, the Stone Cold Stellas, made up of young skaters ages 12-17. In their first public game, the Stone Cold Stellas will take on the Candy Crushers, Nanaimo’s junior derby team.

Junior derby players start out playing with positional blocking only, but these skaters have advanced to play a contact game. The Stellas are coached by two of the Betties’ veteran skaters, Wright Krazy and Icesis.

“Sometimes coaching the juniors is like herding cats,” said Icesis, “but the light bulb has gone on for them lately. I’m really excited to see our Juniors play.”

The Brick House Betties will dish out hits, 70s-style, in the second game of the night against Nanaimo’s Brass Knuckle Derby Dames. This “Dy-No-Mite Family Night” will feature performances by Quest drum line at half times, face painting, and a bouncy castle. Doors open at 5 p.m., juniors’ game starts at 6 p.m., tickets available at the door only (cash), a concession will be open, and there will be merchandise tables, a raffle, and 50/50 draws.

The Brick House Betties’ only other home event this season will be another doubleheader at the CVSC on Saturday, June 7 (19+ only). Join them on Facebook or visit www.brickhousebetties.com for more info.
