Regular Practice Locations
Southshire Roller Derby holds its regular practices at a number of locations. It’s primary practice space is at 441 Water Street, North Bennington, Vermont.
We began leasing the upstairs of this manufacturing facility March 2016. With 7500 square feet of open skating space we can accommodate a fairly sizeable number of skaters and a slightly modified practice track.
In good weather and when the sun stays up late, we occasionally practice on the tennis courts located adjacent to the Pownal Town Offices on Center Street in Pownal, Vermont.
On the practices scheduled before home games, we practice at our competition facility – Riley Rink, in Manchester Center.
Other practices may include skating on local and regional rail trails.
We travel around the northeast, usually keeping our away games to within 4 hours.
Our home games are held at the Reynolds/Gilcrest Skating Rink in Hoosick Falls! While our new home is in another state, it’s a lot closer to our home base in North Bennington, Vermont. It’s also closer for our adults and juniors who live and work in New York and Massachusetts than our old venue in Manchester.
