Hard hitting roller derby skates back into action

The Kokeshi Roller Dolls are taking their warm up laps on the oval hardwood in anticipation of their Roller Derby League season opener coming up September 20th.

“Cops vs. Convicts” is the theme of the night as the Roller Derby League action pits the Kokeshi Roller Dolls against the Devil Dog Derby Dames at Marine Hangar 3 off of Douglas Ave on Kadena Air Base. Admission is free, and concessions will be available. Fans are encouraged to dress up and join in the fun. Doors open at 5 p.m.

Sarah Sefton of the Kokeshi Roller Dolls says “Don’t know anything about roller derby? No problem! We will have some very helpful volunteers in the audience to help you understand the rules and the strategy.”

Sefton encourages newcomers to the spectator sport to “Come on down to support a growing revolution on Okinawa and beyond, and see what the talk is all about!”
