Expect big hits and quick jukes at Rat City Roller Derby’s Season 16 home opener Saturday at Edmonds Community College, 20000 68th Ave W, Lynnwood 98036

Spectators can enjoy two full-length bouts featuring RCRD home teams. First, Derby Liberation Front will take on the Sockit Wenches, starting at 4:45 p.m. The second bout will pit the Throttle Rockets against Grave Danger. There will be a mix of new faces and returning favorites on the track.

Rat City Roller Derby president Anne Smashaway said the league is excited to kick off its home team season. “Even though we don’t have a home right now, we are still here playing rain or shine,” she said.

The former Rat’s Nest building in Shoreline was sold last spring to a developer with plans to build more than 240 units of housing. RCRD has been looking for a new permanent location, but has specific track dimensions that require a larger facility, about the size of a warehouse. 

In the interim, RCRD has been partnering with Seattle Parks and Recreation for space rentals. For space leads, please contact Scarlet Fever, Business Operations Manager, at bizops@ratcityrollerderby.com.

  • Jan. 11 — Home Team Season Opener, doors open at 4pm, first bout starts at 4:45pm, Edmonds Community College, 20000 68th Ave W, Lynnwood
