Roller derby is rolling into your backyard! Balsam Area Derby Association and Balsam Mountain Roller Girls are hosting two Bad Scrimmages on Sunday May 4th at 4pm at Smoky Mountain Skateway off the by-pass in Waynesville.
Balsam Mountain Area Derby Association teamed up with Columbia Quad Squad for a bootcamp which will take place before the scrimmage on Sunday. The scrimmage will give skaters from all over Western North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee to learn new skills before showcasing in the public scrimmage.
Columbia Quad Squad is ranked #45 in the world for Women’s Flat Track Derby Asssociation (WFTDA) and hails from Columbia, South Carolina.
There will be a women’s scrimmage and a coed scrimmage. A family friendly event, the public is welcome to come watch both bouts! $5 admission and seating is limited so everyone is encouraged to bring a chair.
Balsam Mountain Roller Girls is Waynesville’s only women’s flat track roller derby team. Balsam Area Derby Association is the only co-ed team in Western North Carolina. For more information visit www.balsammountainrollergirls.com or www.facebook.com/balsammountainrollergirls
