Mad Misfits head to Central New York Junior Roller Derby

On May 19, our Mad Misfits take on the Central New York Junior Roller Derby team in Rome, NY! These players have worked hard and grown so much as individuals and as a team. We’re sending them with pride and confidence!

These faces are just a few of the 25 amazing Mad Misfits playing with Monadnock Roller Derby this year. Stay tuned for updates on both our Mad Misfits and Mad Knockers roster and season schedule!

If you are inspired by our junior roller derby players as we are, you can support them with a contribution of time or a donation toward supplies and gear.

You can also still grab a copy of the Get Rolling: The Monadnock Roller Derby official cookbook. Your support helps us to continue empowering youth in our community through the awesomeness of roller derby. Email contact@monadnockrollerderby.com for details.
