The Sulphur City Steam Rollers are fielding a mixed-level team and will be coming up against Team Crazy Legs Aotearoa, an invitational team of players from all areas of New Zealand who skate out for invisible (mental and chronic) illness.

Our goal for this event, is not only to raise funds for our local league but also to give back to the wider New Zealand roller derby community. We plan to raise enough funds to cover the costs of seven representatives from roller derby leagues around the country, to attend the new St John Mental Health First Aid Course.

This, in the hopes of better equipping our sport, in times when members are going through crisis. This is very important to us.

Prizes will be given to the Best Dressed Adult and Child Halloween Costumes, as well as those with the Best Supporter's Sign for their favourite team or skater.

In most of the Sulphur City Steam Rollers' events to-date, tickets have sold out up to a week prior to the event. So the organisers recommend that you purchase your tickets well in advance. We're not even kidding!

In the game of roller derby, which is full contact and has been likened to ‘rugby on skates’, players skate around an oval track in a pack made up of eight skaters, four from each team, who hold the position of blockers.

Blockers must remain within a certain distance from each other at all times. Also on the track are jammers, one from each team who are the point scorers. It is the jammers’ role to attempt to ‘break’ through the pack and score points for each opposition player they pass.

Following an extensive rule set, modern roller derby also includes a large group of officials who keep the players in line and track game statistics. There are up to seven referees required during a game, each with individual responsibilities. Up to 14 Non-skating Officials are also required, and generally include newer skaters, or in Steam Roller terminology, Groupies.
