Roller Derby Returns to the Wildwoods Convention Center


The Third Annual Colossal Coastal Roller Derby Expo will take place in the Oceanfront Arena at the Wildwoods Convention Center on Saturday, August 27 – where hundreds of roller derby skaters will compete in a hard-hitting, adrenalin-fueled derby games throughout the entire day.

Below is the line-up for Saturday’s open-to-the-public games:

4-5:30 p.m. – Rookie Co-Ed Game (Jersey Shore Jolter’s Award)

5:30-6:45 p.m. – Intermediate Female Game (Tram Car Crippler’s Cup)

6:45-8 p.m. – Advanced Co-Ed Game (Doo Wallop Award)

MAIN EVENT – 8-11 p.m.:  Male and Female All-Star Game (Wildwood Warrior Wave)

Last year, hundreds of skaters from all over the country converged on the Wildwoods for a weekend of roller derby workshops, games, fun, sun and various social events. From early-morning boot camps along the beach, to gripping games in the state-of-the-art Oceanfront Arena overlooking the ocean, the Colossal Coastal Roller Derby Expo is a one-of-a-kind roller derby event, hosted by M.A.D.E. – the Modern Athletic Derby Endeavor.

In addition to Roller Derby games throughout the day, there will also be celebrity appearances by Amy Nicoletto (amynicolettotattoos.com) from the hit show, L.A. Ink, as well as, Spike TV’s own Permanent Mark.

The general public can also enjoy activities such as an interactive Derby Bingo game to raise awareness for Autism Speaks – whereby the players become the Bingo “balls”, along with “Dunk a Derby Girl” at the Wildwoods Convention Center – where guests can try their hand at winning free tickets to the event.

Tickets for the Colossal Coastal Roller Derby Expo are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Kids under 6 are FREE. Military and student discount tickets are offered for $10 with proper ID, as well as for groups of 6 or more.
