After a 2 year hiatus, Roller Derby is back in Oneonta!

The Hill City Rollers have slowly been rebuilding their team and are excited to host a “Mashup Bout” on Sunday, July 17, at 2 p.m. at Interskate 88, Southside Oneonta.

Roller derby has been around for a little over a century, though the sport’s early days were a lot less glamorous than the current incarnation. It has grown to be one of the most popular sports in the United States. According to the Roller Derby Coalition, it is also growing rapidly overseas. It’s actually a very amazing sport.

For those that aren’t familiar it, according to the website Rules of Sport, the point of roller derby is pretty simple. Each team is trying to score more points than the opposition. Points are awarded when the offensive player from one team, known as the jammer, laps a member of the opposing team. As a full-contact sport, the defensive players of the opposing team, known as blockers, can use physical force to stop the jammer from passing them, as well as help to clear the way for their own jammer.
