Penn Jersey Roller Derby (PJRD), the co-ed amateur roller derby league based in the tri-state area, is buckling its chin strap in preparation for the upcoming 2010-2011 season. The group promises to bring back its classic rough-and-tumble contests as well as offer new forms of action with the unveiling of its new banked track.

The league coaches, Judy "The Polish Ace" Sowinski and Arnold "Skip" Schoen, strive to maintain the traditional values of the 75 year old American-born sport by ensuring that their players combine athleticism with entertainment. The 60 league members - men and women between the ages of 18-45 - are not only elite athletes with unusually high endurance and polished fighting abilities, but they are also great performers who possess their own unique and cool player personas as well as exaggerated team uniforms.

PJRD is a four team league which includes the Hooligans (men's team), She Devils (women's travel team) and two intra-league women's teams - the Sadistic Sweethearts and Dishonor Roll. Four truly exciting players to keep your eye on during the 2010-2011 season are Brandon "Beater Griffin" Segal, Kristin "Bruise Suede Shoes" Refsnider, Carol "Wiggy Smalls" Herwig and Katie "Hellanor Rollsevelt" Karalis.

"Roller Derby is really growing in popularity across the Philadelphia area and we expect even more fans to come out and see us this year," said Kelly "Deuces Wild" Cash, co-captain of Dishonor Roll. "The teams are really excited about this upcoming season and we're all ready to provide our supporters with even more action like high speed collisions and intense pile ups."

Although the teams currently skate on flat surfaces, they will begin playing league games on a traditional banked track, one of just 12 in the United States, in early 2011. Not only will this rink allow players to skate at higher speeds, it will offer fans even more intense action.
