Ohio Roller Derby presents:

The Skatemare Before Christmas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Ohio Roller Derby’s annual holiday bout has been resurrected. The Roller Ghouls and Jingle Bells will face off once again in this Halloween-vs.-Christmas-themed intraleague game. As a special holiday treat, our 2019 Rookies will battle it out in their own exhibition game!

Tickets are $10 online and $12 at the door.
The Skatemare Before Christmas will be held in the Lausche Building at the Ohio Expo Center. Doors open at 4:00 PM; rookie exhibition starts at 4:30; game starts at 6:00 PM.

    We strive to make our games kid-friendly, and we love to see your little skater tots cheering in the stands!

    Children under 8 are always admitted free.

    Meet The Skaters

    One of the best things about roller derby is how accessible the athletes are – roller derby players really love talking to our fans! Please feel free to flag us down when you see us roll past, or come by the autograph table, located by the merchandise booth. We’ll sign autographs, take photos, shake hands, kiss babies – we will entertain most reasonable requests!

    What’s Going On?

    Roller derby is a full-contact sport and the action on the track is fast, so sometimes things can get confusing! We’ve written a “Derby 101” lesson for you here so you can get started with some background reading. On the day, we’ll keep you informed with information in your program and helpful commentary from our professional announcers – or feel free to ask a passing derby skater to help you figure out what just happened!
