Men's Derby! Come support our boys!
Our friends 'The Quadfathers' are bringing men's roller derby to the CNY region! You can pick up information from them at our home bouts this season. Their first practice will take place at JFK arena in Rome, NY on Saturday April 10th from 5:30-7:30pm.
The Quadfathers are a separate league/team from CNYRD altogether. CNYRD is not co-ed, but the two groups mutually support each other and share newbie training duties and some practice times.
From grambo, one of our refs and Quadfathers' founder:
Everyone who is interested is welcome to attend Quadfathers' practice. There are no league affiliation issues, girls or guys. There are rental skates ($5) & loaner safety gear (free but stinky) available to give it a try. All we ask is to bring a couple dollars to throw in to cover our practice time. We accept your unrolled coins :) We play by WFTDA rules, which includes everyone wearing full safety gear (helmet, kneepads, elbow pads, wrist guards, and mouthguard) and passing skating assessments before being allowed to scrimmage/bout.
All participants will need to sign a waiver. Guys who want to compete as a Quadfathers' team member will need to purchase skating insurance.
You do NOT need to be a great skater to play. We will train you! Guys who need basic training can also attend fresh meat practices starting May 18th.
