March Madness – Roller Derby Style!

0
" />

I know, I know. When you hear March Madness, you usually thinks of basketball but judging by the sheer number of roller derby events we got going on just in the first few weeks of March, I think that’s going to change. There’s derby bouts going on everywhere. You’d be hard pressed to find a corner of the country that doesn’t have a bout happening.

We are, of course, so proud to be part of the national roller derby movement and encourage everyone to go out and support this grass-roots, DIY sport that’s on the rise. Look for another list towards the end of the month featuring more derby madness!

Roll on guys and gals, roll on!
