Arch Rival Roller Derby Season Opener 

When: Sat., Dec. 15, 6:30 p.m. 2018
Price: $8-$15
The Arch Rival Roller Derby league start its lucky thirteenth season of flat track roller derby with an expanded roster of four home teams and two bouts. The Stunt Devils and the Smashinistas resume their long rivalry at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, December 15, at Queeny Park's Midwest Sport Hockey (570 Weidman Road, Ballwin; www.archrivalrollerderby.com). After the dust settles, the Rebel Skate Alliance dukes it out with the M-80s. If you haven't been to the roller derby in a while (or if this will be your first bout) you should familiarize yourself with the rules, which are on the league website. The short version is that five skaters from each team take to the rink and try to prevent the opposing team's jammer from lapping the pack. If a jammer gets past every opposing skater, they score a point for their team. It's a fast-paced game that requires both physicality — the other team physically blocks the jammer, which results in falls and collisions — and strategy. Tickets are $8 to $15 and kids younger than ten are free.
