Who are the New England Skate Riots?

The New England Skate Riots are the only New England-wide junior roller derby team. We are a gender-inclusive team, for players at Level 1, 2, and 3.

The Skate Riots began in 2018, created to be the New England travel team for the East Coast Derby Extravaganza (ECDX). At the time, none of the many New England junior roller derby teams was large enough to field their own travel team, so we joined forces. At ECDX 2018 the Skate Riots took in players from teams all across New England and even beyond New England. And won!

From day one, the New England Skate Riots showed that we are stronger together.

And then Covid happened, and roller derby stopped happening for everyone.

The Skate Riots are now working to restart junior roller derby in New England. Anyone who knows how to skate is welcome! We will teach you the rules of roller derby.
