There was a time in Kansas City when the roller derby season didn’t start for another two or three months. The Kansas City Roller Warriors‘ season typically ran from March to August, and Fountain City usually started in February and lasted through roughly the end of summer.
Times have thankfully changed, and nowadays, the months-long wait for more roller derby action has been pared down significantly — especially when you consider KCRW’s mini-tournaments and invitationals that can extend into December, rendering the “off season” a bit of a misnomer.
Derby fans in Kansas City will be able to get their flat track fix starting January 5 when KCRW kicks off its 2019 season at Memorial Hall in KCK.
We’ll have the full details for you as bout day draws nearer. Mark your calendars now for January 5 and join us trackside as we spend another incredible season covering this amazing league.
Later, toward the end of January, Fountain City Roller Derby‘s all-gender/coed league kicks off ’19 with Game 1 on January 26.
