The Scouting Report
The Broome County Rollers and the Black River Rollerz have one thing in common: when it comes to roller derby, they're the only show in town. The Black River Rollerz look to defend Watertown's honor—and protect their home track—with a synchronized onslaught of jamming and blocking. Invading from downstate, Broome County's Parlor City Tricks seek an upset behind road warriors with commendably antagonistic names, such as Miss Ann Thrope and Therapissed.
Black River Rollerz
As Watertown's first and only all-female flat-track roller-derby team, the Black River Rollerz are fueled by hometown pride—and quite literally driven by hometown talent. The hard-hitting franchise traces its roots back to 2010, when it first held open tryouts and training sessions for rising stars. The organization is always on the hunt for new talent, and welcomes anyone—woman or man—looking for a competitive outlet that's more fun and less monotonous than playing Whac-A-Mole solo.
