State College Area Roller Derby To Host 8th Annual St. Valentine’s Day Massacre

The State College Area Roller Derby team will kick off its 2018 season with the annual St. Valentine’s Day Massacre from 5-7 p.m. Sunday, February 11 at Penn Skates. The eighth annual event is guaranteed to keep you on your edge of your seat when two home roller derby teams battle it out for year-long bragging rights.

State College Area Roller Derby, or SCAR Derby, is a non-profit organization and is a skater-owned and operated women’s flat-track derby league. The league extends further than just college students, as women of all ages and lifestyles from the Centre County region come together to compete.

The event is open to the public, and is hosted just before SCAR Derby hosts open spring recruitment, which begins February 18. Within the league, there are multiple competition opportunities, including a highly competitive travel team and lower-level home teams that both compete the majority of the year.

The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre Derby is between the Pennsyltucky Punishers and Mount Nittany Mayhem, who have competed at this event since 2011. You can purchase your ticket for $8 here.
