Derby is on the rise around the globe, and Cleveland is no different. The Burning River Roller Girls, Cleveland’s premier flat track roller derby league, is ushering in a brand new era this season with not only its traditional five home team bouts, but also, for the first time ever, two travel team events at the Wolstein Center in Cleveland!
The league will conclude its home team season Saturday, June 9 with a championship double-header full of hard hits, high skill, fast action and fun for the entire family!
Be there as Cleveland’s four home teams face off, starting with the Cleveland Steamers vs. the Hard Knockers vying for third and fourth place.
Then for the third year in a row, the Hellbombers and the Rolling Pin-Ups will duke it out for all the glory and the right to take home the Hazard Cup! Will the reigning champs, the Hellbombers, keep the coveted trophy? Or will the Pin-Ups reclaim the title they held in 2010? Either way, this promises to be an edge-of-your-seat event!
Arrive a little early to watch Cleveland’s junior roller derby league, The Firestarters, perform during a pre-show bout.
If you love our home teams, you won’t want to miss our travel teams! See your favorite skaters from the league join forces to take on regional rivals. The Burning River All-Stars and HazMat Crew make up the best of the best of the Burning River Roller Girls, and they aim to prove it!
Saturday, June 16, the HazMat Crew will take on Tri-City Plan B from Kitchener, Ontario. Then the All-Stars will battle the Tri-City Thunder in a WFTDA (Women’s Flat Track Derby Association) bout that will count toward the team’s national rankings.
The evening will kick off with a pre-show bout featuring Burning River’s farm team, the Pyromaniacs, vs. the Glass City Rollers of Toledo, Ohio.

Am I the only one who read the title of this post and thought it was about June Cleavage? Like maybe some centerfold-esque photos of her being adorable… ;P
