The Skate Riots began in 2018, but officially incorporated in 2021 with an all-new group of parents and board members to provide opportunities for youth to skate while many other New England teams had not yet returned due to Covid. We are now a thriving group of around 25 players and growing. We practice twice a week (Sunday mornings in Saugus, MA and Tuesday evenings in Tyngsboro, MA).
The New England Skate Riots are the only New England-wide junior roller derby team. We are JRDA affiliated, gender-inclusive team, for players at all skill levels. NESR is a 100% volunteer-run, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
The Skate Riots’ mission is to provide a fun, safe, and supportive environment for young athletes to play the team sport of roller derby and connect with an inclusive community.
Anyone who knows how to skate is welcome! We will teach you the rules of roller derby.
