North Coast Nightmare's Jammer

Nightmares taking on the province in Prince George this weekend

Terrace’s North Coast Nightmares Roller Derby league are heading to their first bout of the season this weekend

Terrace’s North Coast Nightmares Roller Derby league are heading to their first bout of the season this weekend, the Northern Exposures tournament in Prince George, March 22 and 23. The Nightmares will be competing against more experienced teams while hoping to bring home the top spot.

The tournament showcases many roller derby teams across B.C. in a double knockout format. The Nightmares play their first bout against PG first thing Saturday morning.

“This is a great opportunity for our team to gain some tournament experience and also play against some tough teams,” says Nightmares Co-Captain Jenny (BAM!b) Danskin. “Whatever the outcome, we’ll only come home stronger.”

The Nightmare’s competitive season is just ramping up as they have scheduled three other travel games and have confirmed one home bout so far. One of those scheduled games is against the newly formed Smithers league, The Hudson Bay Babes.

“We are really excited to see Smithers’ Roller Derby gaining some momentum and we’ll do whatever we can to support them along the way,” says Co Captain, Jessica (Marge Sins Some) Hogg. “Having a competing team so close means more roller derby action in the North.”

The Nightmares are also scheduled to play Quesnel’s Gold Pain City on May 10 at the Terrace Sportsplex. The league is still actively recruiting officials, as bringing in the number of refs required to play a bout is a very costly expense. For those who might be interested in officiating, this is a great opportunity to get involved in roller derby without the full contact aspect of the sport.

Anyone interested in getting involved with the league should check out northcoastnightmares.ca or like them on Facebook.
