Sioux Falls ‘Roller Dollz’ are Rolling Back to the Arena
The Roller Dollz made that announcement on Monday, August 18th.
According to team spokeswoman Vanessa Sweeney, also known by her derby fans as Redvolution, the team holds the Arena "near and dear to their hearts-and skates!"
Sweeney says, "The more people who attend our bouts translates to an even better relationship with the community, plus we hope to expose more people to the awesome sport of professional roller derby."
The team's first game on its new home track in 2014 will be on September, 13th at 7:00pm against Winnipeg. The upcoming season will be the Roller Dollz eighth playing professional roller derby.
The Roller Dollz is a not-for-profit organization seeking to empower women and give back to the community.
A&E's series "Rollergirls" was actually the inspiration for the formation of the Sioux Falls Roller Dollz team. The show "Rollergirls" chronicled the lives and sport of the Texas Lonestar Rollergirls, a bank-tracked derby team located in Austin, Texas.
