Rollergirls season opener is March 24
The excitement is coming back to the Swain County Recreation Center, and it’s coming March 24. The Smoky Mountain Rollergirls’ junior league, the Lil’ Nemesisters and SMRG open the 2018 home season an adult invitational and a junior bout. Proceeds from the ticket sales for this event benefit Swain Cancer Support, Inc. Swain Cancer Support, Inc., a local nonprofit that started from the Relay for Life group which raises money to help people of Swain County who are battling cancer.
On Saturday, the junior team takes on Nashville’s Junior Roller Derby team and SMRG is inviting skaters from all over the Southeast to join them for an invitational. (The adult invitational is for skaters who are freshly assessed through B-level.)
Doors open at 3:30 p.m., and the first whistle blows at 4 p.m. to start the Lil’ Nemesisters’ game. The adults play at 6 p.m. Purchase tickets presale from your favorite skater for $5 or get them at the door for $7 (ages 7 & under are free). Meet both teams at a family friendly after party located at Nantahala Brewpub.
