After a drizzly summer, the Boom Town Derby Dames laced up their skates and returned to the track in the beginning of September, officially marking the start of Season 7.

The first month of practice will get the skaters’ skills reassessed for eligibility. Starting October 4th, Boom Town will begin Freshmeat, where new recruits and current skaters needing to touch up on skills will have three months of training before assessing. It’s a busy first few weeks that Boomies look forward to each season!

Freshmeat officially begins October 4, 2017. Anyone interested in joining is encouraged to show up, we accept all skill and fitness levels, any background, shape or size. The only requirement to join is that you’re 18 or older and out of high school. 

Boom Town will be hosting a Recruitment Night September 30th from 8:00pm - 10:00pm at Humdingers Pizza in Palmer to answer any questions about roller derby, being part of Boom Town and what opportunities are available. We can fill you in on becoming an official, a non-skating official or any volunteer opportunities we have! Interested in joining, but can’t make it to Recruitment Night at Humdingers? Send an email with any questions to
