Roll with Southshire Roller Derby
Southshire Roller Derby is a non-profit roller sports training organization based in Bennington, Vermont. We are committed to making our community stronger, happier, and healthier and we are fortunate to be based in a community dedicated to making us better as well.
Our funds are dedicated to creating space and training opportunities for people interested in roller derby and other roller sports. In this 2015 season, we have two dedicated tasks for the funds we raise: producing three family-friendly competitive events at Riley Rink in Manchester, Vermont and improving our practice spaces so we can safely expand our training to juniors (boys and girls ages 5 to 18).
On July 11, 2015 we introduced derby to Bennington County and over 600 people came and enjoyed the games. We have two more double headers this year with Capital District Mens Roller Derby September 5, and September 26. This means in addition to our home team, there are three teams visiting the area, each with approximately 25 competitors and support staff. Roller derby events can attract upwards of 1,000 fans (some large cities draw over 5,000 fans) so our combined efforts can really provide an economic boost to the area while providing fun entertainment for the people who live here.
Thank you for supporting our efforts to bring roller sports to Bennington County and it’s neighbors as well as bringing these great events to Riley Rink. We look forward to seeing you at our games and welcome your support in any way year round.
