Shoreline Roller Derby Celebrates its First Year

After a busy year, Shoreline Roller Derby is turning one! The ladies of Shoreline have been hard at work mastering the skills required to play roller derby, while also maintaining an active presence in the community.

Shoreline’s inaugural bouting season starts March 31st with an away bout against the Yankee Brutals of the Connecticut Roller Girls. For Shoreline’s home team championship season, the Burlesque Bruisers, Steam Queens and Underskated Knockouts will face off in a series of bouts. On April 22, the Steam Queens and Underskated Knockouts take to the track to start the season at Galaxy Roller Rink.

But before the bouting begins, the ladies of Shoreline Roller Derby will be having a Derbyversary party at the Rotten Apple in Groton on March 10. Dance the night away with DJ Breakdown and Shoreline Roller Derby! Tickets are $10.00 at the door for this 21 and over event that starts at 8 PM.

For the softer, fuzzier side of Shoreline, check out Skate with the Easter Bunny on April 5th at Galaxy Roller Rink. From 5-7PM Admission is $6.00 and there will be prizes, games and chances to get your picture taken with the bunny himself.
