Check out this short documentary about the Hellions of Troy Roller Derby. It's a good introduction to some of the culture of roller derby, including the basics of the game, the names, and what draws people to play.
The Hellions 2014 season will be starting up soon -- they play their home matches at the Rollarama in Schenectady.
As it happens, the Capital Region has not one but two roller derby groups. The Albany All Stars' season picks up again in February at the Washington Ave Armory.
We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
