NOVA Roller Derby was formed in April 2011 as a MADE league, but 2015 is bringing a number of exciting changes. One of the biggest is the addition of a WFTDA travel team. This team is made up of some of NRD’s best players who are ready to take on a new challenge. Along with different rules, these women are learning a whole new set of skills and moves, and will be taking on teams they’ve never played before. First up: the 301 Derby Dames out of Southern Maryland– and you can be a part of the action.
Come down to Rollerworks Family Skating Center in Bealton, Virginia to see league history being made as the WFTDA SuperNOVAs play their very first bout on February 22. Doors open at 7:00 PM and the first whistle is at 8:00 PM. Tickets are $10 if you buy them in advance and $12 at the door. As always, children 6 and under are free, so make sure you bring the whole family! Seating is limited, so bring your own chairs and arrive early for the best seating options. Food and drinks are available for purchase at the venue.
NOVA Roller Derby’s motto is “Skate Hard, Give Back,” and in that vein, we are please to announce that our February charity of the month is Fauquier SPCA. They will have a table at the bout and are looking for donations of canned pet food and rawhide dog treats. Stop by, say “hi,” and learn about this important organization.
We’re a social league, and we love it when our fans participate. If you’re on Twitter or Instagram, make sure to tag your posts with #NRDSuperNOVAs so we can see your favorite parts of the bout! As always, make sure to follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
