This is NOVA Roller Derby’s first season with a WFTDA travel team, and we’re bringing the action home to Michael and Son Sportsplex as the WFTDA SuperNOVAs take on SoVA Roller Derby. Those of you who have only been to our MADE bouts will be in for a treat, as the WFTDA rule set shows a completely different side of these talented skaters. Not sure about the rules? We’ll have plenty of volunteers with “Ask a Roller Girl” signs who will be more than happy to explain what’s going on.
The SuperNOVAs play SoVA this Saturday, August 1st, so get your tickets now! They’re only $10 on Brown Paper Tickets if you buy them ahead of time. You can also get tickets through our Living Social deal and receive $10 toward a shirt! Support NOVA Roller Derby or rock the colors of your favorite home team. Doors open at 2:30 and first whistle is at 3:30. As always, bring your own chairs for the best seating options. NOVA Roller Derby is family friendly, so be sure to bring the kids! Children 6 and under always get in free.
Each month we are proud to support a different charity that has an immediate impact on the community. This month we are proud to sponsor, A Place To Be. A Place To Be uses the awesome power of music, theater, and art to give people the tools to thrive and prosper in an ever-changing, beautiful, but sometimes imbalanced world. Their mission is to help people face, navigate, and overcome life’s challenges using the therapeutic arts.
They will be collecting regular and gluten-free snack foods.
Two weeks later, on August 15, we open the doors again at Michael and Son Sportsplex for our first rematch of the season, with The Metro Misfits vs The Beltway Betties. The Misfits defeated the Betties in the first home game of the season, but then the Betties came back and defeated the Vineyard Vixens in their next bout, so this is sure to be a close one. Both teams have recently faced shakeups in their rosters, so in the race to the championships, it’s anyone’s game. Buy your tickets ahead of time for $10, or $12 at the door.
At this bout, we will be supporting Stillbrave Childhood Cancer Foundation “Strength for the Strong”! They will be collecting cash donations or gift cards to places such as Giant or Shell. Learn more and donate to this wonderful local organization and the brave children for whom they are fighting.
