NOVA Roller Derby is out for brains in this fun, co-ed summer bout. Join us on August 17 at Michael and Son Sportsplex at Dulles , where we’ll be mixing up the home teams and pitting natural enemies, zombies and plants, against each other.
Fans can look forward to plenty of zombie-themed makeup and plant-themed names (Cinnamon Fern and Venus Pie Trap, just to name a few), in our last theme bout before the next home game in September, which will feature The Beltway Betties taking on the undefeated Vineyard Vixens for the first time this season.
This bout will be played following the official rule set of Modern Athletic Derby Endeavor (M.A.D.E.)—a national affiliation of leagues promoting fair, skilled competition. Tickets are $10 if you buy them in advance online, or $12 at the door. As always, children six and under are free. The Michael and Son Sportsplex (formerly Dulles Sportsplex) is located at 21610 Atlantic Boulevard in Sterling, VA. Doors will open at 4:30 p.m. While some seating is available, we recommend that fans bring their own chairs and arrive early to snag their spots and grab their pre-bout snacks. The first whistle will be at 5:30 p.m.
NOVA Roller Derby has a charitable mission that focuses on supporting people and organizations that have an immediate impact on our community. This August, NOVA Roller Derby is proud to be working with Stillbrave as our charity of the month. Stillbrave’s mission is to provide non-medical supportive care to children with cancer and their families in the Washington, D.C. metro area. Please bring a small stuffed animal to the bout and help Stillbrave comfort children with cancer as they fight the toughest battle of their lives.
After the bout, join the skaters as they return to Mahalo Cove for their after party. Located at 46300 McClellan Way in Sterling, Mahalo Cove offers music, drinks, delicious food, and the opportunity to meet and mingle with your favorite NOVA Roller Derby skaters and volunteers. Your admission wristband will get you in with no cover before 9 p.m.
