Coney Island's Abe Stark Arena -- ordinarily a civic ice hockey venue -- will be transformed into a Boardwalk Roller Derby Palace of Awesome.... again!
Gotham Girls Roller Derby is proud to present some hard hitting action with two bouts. The Gotham Girls Junior Derby (GGJD) will be up first, proving you are never too young to skate fast and hit hard. GGJD is the only junior derby league in NYC. GGJD will be playing against Cleveland JRDA. The second bout of the night will be the Brooklyn Bombshells taking on the Manhattan Mayhem. Mayhem has secured a spot in the championship and the Bombshells are out for blood, gunning to repeat last year's victory against the Mayhem.
The venue (pictured here at http://www.nycgo.com/venues/abe-stark-rink) will allow both trackside seating and seating in the stands. Due to the layout of the venue, there will be no VIP seating for this event. Tickets are general admission only. If you plan to sit trackside, you should bring your own folding chair.
Children under the age of 18 will not be allowed to sit trackside. Children 5 and under are admitted free.
Alcohol will be served at the bout - a rarity for New York derby! Come on out for a day at Coney Island and an evening of roller derby.
After-party plans TBA.
Abe Stark Arena is convenient to the Stillwell Avenue stop, at the end of the D, F, N, and Q trains. It's situated in the parking lot of MCU Park, just west of the subway stop.
