June 19: Skate It Out is back!

It’s been a while, but we’re back! Sort of!

We lost our space of more than a decade (the Yonkers Police Athletic League) due to a change in management. But we’ve found a summer place over at Murray’s Skating Center in Yonkers, and we hope you can come skate with us!

This Sunday, June 19, you can come Skate It Out from 11:30 am until 1:30 pm. It’s open to all skill levels, ages 18 and older, and the cost is $10, payable with exact change or through our Venmo or PayPal accounts.

We no longer have loaner gear — it was destroyed in our previous practice space — so you’ll have to supply your own equipment: helmet, mouthguard, wrist, elbow, and knee pads and, of course, skates.

Please RSVP to so we know to expect you. Hope to see you soon!

March 20: Virtual Skate It Out!

Skate It Out is back (and virtual)!

Do you miss playing roller derby? Have you picked up a new rollerskating hobby over the pandemic and want to learn what roller derby is all about? Do you just want to sweat all over Zoom?


We’ll be going over how to play the game, doing a little off-skates workout, and then teaching basic skating skills. All you need is a computer or phone with Zoom and a space to skate.

Day: Saturday, March 20

Time: 11 am ET – noon

Price: FREE!

How do I sign up/RSVP? Click here! Fill out a short form and we’ll send you the Zoom link.

See you soon!

(and yes, you can turn the video off if you want to … but we hope you don’t!)

On June 15, a group of league members left the cozy confines of Westchester to spend the day down at Graffiti Church on the Lower East Side of NYC.

June 30: Skate It Out!

It feels like it’s been raining for a year. Maybe you’re starting to feel as soggy and gloomy as the weather. But SRD is here for you! Come skate out those rainy day blues on Sunday, June 30th! All levels of experience are welcome.


June’s Member of the Month: Tricky Dick!

June’s Member of the Month is bench manager Tricky Dick, and this one is a little bittersweet. After nearly ten years with SRD, Tricky is retiring. If you’ve been to one of our bouts, you’ve probably seen Tricky managing the team in his trademark mermaid-scale leggings. And if you’ve ever been a member of Suburbia, you already know what his closing words of wisdom are going to be. Get to know Tricky a little better below:


May’s Member of the Month: Cinderhella!

May’s Member of the Month has been around nearly from the beginning. She’s one of the unsung heroes of roller derby. Skaters are great and all, but no league could function without our behind-the-scenes crew. We’re proud to introduce our unofficial league mom, volunteer extraordinaire, and part-time superhero: Cinderhella!


May 18: Skate It Out!

“As full of spirit as the month of May, and as gorgeous as the sun in Midsummer.” Shakespeare was talking about Henry IV, but we’re talking about you… when you come Skate It Out on May 18th! All levels of experience are welcome.
