You know the old saying, "April showers bring May flowers?" Well in this case, April showers are gonna bring May... hem! Join us for a double-header on Saturday, April 7, when Naptown Warning Belles take on the Steel City Blitzburgh Bombers in the first of two bouts. Then, your Tornado Sirens face Pittsburgh's Steel Hurtin'. It'll be an action-packed derby spectacle. Come for one bout, or come for both. Just be there!
Your Tornado Sirens last faced Steel Hurtin' in January of 2009 with a devastating season opening loss at The Blue Ribbon pavilion. The Sirens are ready to settle that score but the ladies from Pittsburgh aren't traveling to Indianapolis to lose.
The Tornado Sirens, along with the Warning Belles and Naptown's Third Alarm are all competing teams for Indianapolis' own Naptown Roller Girls. NRG is a group of awesome gals from Indianapolis, Indiana who want to do one thing: SKATE.
Warning Belles vs. Steel City B Unit at 5:30pm and the Tornado Sirens play at 7:30pm.
Our fast and fabulous ladies have collected bruises, torn tendons, dislocated ankles and broken bones to bring roller derby to the Indianapolis area. We've been dedicated to skating, practicing, falling on our asses and getting back up to bring you action-packed bouts. For more information, head to www.naptownrollergirls.com.
What is roller derby?
Roller derby consists of two teams of five skaters each on the track. Each team has one scoring player called a jammer, who starts at the back and wears a star on her helmet. The rest of the skaters are called blockers, and they form a pack. The blockers get a head start on the jammers when the first whistle is blown; the jammers start sprinting at the sound of the second whistle. The jammers have to get through the pack and back around another lap before they can start scoring. On their second and future trips through, they get a point for every opponent they pass. Everyone else tries to stop the other teams' jammer from passing while helping their own jammer through. The team with the most points at the end of the bout wins.
What this means for you? Fun, action and excitement!
