August Hellcats and Groms Exhibition Bout


August is our favorite month of the year! Not only is it the fun-filled, lingering days of Summer....It's officially Derby Girl Month in Santa Cruz! 

To celebrate, we are bringing you a special double-header of Santa Cruz Derby Girls on Saturday August 25th! To start, the Santa Cruz Derby Groms will be showcasing their upcoming talent when our youngest skaters, the Grommets, will be playing alongside the Saltwater Sassies in a special expo game. First whistle is 5:15 pm!

Then Mayor David Terrazas will be making an official derby proclamation and blowing the first whistle at 6:45 pm to start off our main event! The Harbor Hellcats will be facing off our friendly rivals to the north, the BEASTars from Sacramento Roller Derby

Come for the derby, but don't miss the interactive audience participation halftime games. Or the puppies! Our 2018 Featured Non-Profit Santa Cruz SPCA will be there with several cuties who are looking for their forever homes. There will be a special pup-rade so you can see them strut their stuff.

Additionally, there will be a special halftime presentation to feature our internationally competitive charter team, the Boardwalk Bombsells, who will be leaving the very next day to travel to Spain for the 2018 International WFTDA playoffs!

With the Groms, the Hellcats, and the Bombshells in the house, it is truly the biggest celebration of Derby Girl Month! Buy your tickets at

The Civic has a snack bar with pizza, popcorn, and other sweets and a beer and wine bar for our over 21 crowd!
