The local roller derby squad announced a name change last week - which coincided with the release of an Earth Rider beer named for the team. Harbor City Roller Derby, no longer the Roller Dames, made the switch because it “utilizes more inclusive, non-gendered language to reflect the representation of all genders within the league,” according to a news release.
The flat-track roller derby team has been active since 2007 and is seeking skaters who are at least 18 years old.
Harbor City Roller Derby hosts bouts on May 11 and June 15 at Wessman Arena. For more info on the team, go to its Facebook page.
Harbor City IPA was released on April 5 by the Superior-based brewery.
