RCRD in the News - March 2015

Roc Derby - Wednesday, March 18, 2015

Rochester's Democrat & Chronicle has done a wonderful story on RCRD, which can be found on their website, here!

It's a great look at who we are and what we do, with a bit of our history, a description of how the game is played and a few interviews with some of our members, which offer insight to why we play. Be sure to check it out!


Special thanks to Victoria Freile, who not only wrote the piece, but also donned a pair of skates, helmet and pads to refresh her childhood skating skills! You can read her personal thoughts on the experience, as well as her memories of skating as a kid, here.

RCRD featured in 2013 ROC Pride Games

Roc Derby - Tuesday, July 09, 2013

Rochester is gearing up for ROC Pride 2013, and something new is being added to the mix: this July, Rochester will host the first annual ROC Pride Games, a weekend full of LGBT-friendly sporting events. And highlights of the ROC Pride games include special July 19 and July 20 roller derby bouts, both featuring Roc City Roller Derby!

Roller derby is no stranger to the LGBT community. With teams like the Vagine Regime, roller derby’s first queer team, and full blogs dedicated to roller derby-related LGBT causes, this sport has paved the way for acceptance. Roller derby’s governing body, the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), has been in the forefront for transgender inclusion in women’s sports. “Being in these games made sense for Roc City Roller Derby,” says Justine Pruss, president of Roc City Roller Derby and a skater and coach who goes by P.F. Bangs on the track. “Roller derby is an open and accepting community, and we want to showcase our own league’s acceptance of all lifestyles during ROC Pride.”

RCRD’s participation in the ROC Pride games is comprised of three action-packed bouts. On Friday, July 19, its the Ruby Red Skates team vs the Yellow Brick Rollers -- both teams comprised of RCRD skaters -- in a ROC Pride spotlight event titled “Somewhere Over the Painbow: Friends of Dorothy.” Doors open at 7 p.m. and the expo match begins at 8 p.m.

On Saturday, July 20, RCRD Roc Stars and B-Sides take on the Green Mountain Derby Dames (Vermont) and the Crown City Rollerz (Cortland), respectively, in "Somewhere Over the Painbow: Wizard of Oz-some". “Green Mountain is a fierce team. This is sure to be the Roc Star’s best bout of the season,” says Asa Clubs, coach of the Roc Stars. Doors open at 5 p.m., with the first whistle at 6 p.m.


All of RCRD's ROC Pride games will be held at the Bill Gray’s Regional Iceplex on MCC’s Brighton Campus and will benefit the Gay Alliance of Genesee Valley.

Tickets are now available for purchase.
