Outdoor Practice in Pownal

Southshire Roller derby starts holding outdoor practice

The weather is getting warmer and the days are getting longer and we can’t quite fit a full size flat track in our practice space at the Clubhouse (located at the Mill on Benmont).  After researching facilities and features of a number of possible outdoor spaces in Pownal and Bennington, and with the generocity of the Town of Pownal, Southshire Roller Derby is starting up outdoor practices (weather pending) on the old tennis courts by the Pownal town offices.

We’re extremely grateful for the smooth surface of the courts, adequate benches for donning gear and the beautiful view of the Taconics from our new practice space. We also thank the neighbors of the courts.

Our league has its insurance affiliation with the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association which makes team practice there possible by insuring us while we practice there.

Outdoor practice is open to all visiting skaters who are eligible to participate in contact practices as well as officials. Please RSVP so we can inform you if practice is relocated to our Clubhouse due to weather. New recruits interested in joining Southshire Roller Derby (no experience necessary) are encouraged to RSVP to southshirerollerderby@gmail.com and join us at one of our Thursday or Sunday night skills practices in  Bennington where we have loaner gear available.
