Revelstoke Roller Derby will be facing off against a team from Whistler in its first ever derby bout at the Revelstoke Forum on June 23

Dubbed the Ski Town Showdown, the bout will see the Revelstoke Derailers take on the Black Diamond Betties in a match that organizer Stephanie Ells said will feature “lots of hard hitting action.”

“It’s going to be a fast paced game, lots of action,” she said, adding it’s the first bout for both teams.

Revelstoke Roller Derby has 24 skaters and 14 will be on the roster for the bout. They have been practising at various locations around Revelstoke all winter and recently started training three days per week at the arena.

A roller derby bout consists of two 30 minute halves broken up by an intermission. Ells said the rules of the game will be well explained so fans know what is going on.

“That’s really important to us that our fans know whats going on,” she said.

She said the group is looking for volunteers to help with the bout, as well as local entertainment to take part.

Doors for the bout will open at 6:15 p.m. and the action will start at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door.
