Grit City Derby Girls is a start up team that is sponsored by Rollin' 253 Skate and Community Center. The community was asking for a team that young ladies could play on in a safe and friendly environment. The team is being coached by the Clarity Dickinson and all ages from 7-17 are invited to come participate. Practices start October 28, 2018. Classes are $8 drop-in or $20 per month.

Tacoma Sunday Night Roller Hockey is a drop-in/scrimmage roller hockey that is played on Sunday nights at Rollin'253. Admission is $7. Our regular time slot is 7pm to 9pm but is occasionally adjusted for events at the rink. Sticks, skates, helmets, gloves, shin guards, elbow pads and protective cup are required. Skates can be rented at the rink. We play with a hard plastic inline hockey puck. Wide range of skill levels. More experienced players are great at helping and encouraging newer/less experienced players. Under 16 requires an adult with them. All are welcome!  Join our Facebook page "Tacoma Sunday Night Roller Hockey."
