The Burning River Roller Girls, Cleveland's premier flat track roller derby league, will be hosting its first home team bouts of the season Saturday, March 16, marking the league’s seventh year.

The four Cleveland home teams will face off in a double-header at the Ohio Nets Sports Complex in Parma, featuring some of the top athletes of Euclid.

Euclid residents can don their black and red to support city resident Cyndee Jackson (Action Jackson) and Euclid High School alumna Dani Reagan (Bustin’ Stuff), both skaters for Cleveland’s reigning champs, the Hellbombers.

The Hellbombers will open the night battling against the Cleveland Steamers. The second bout will feature the Rolling Pin-Ups and the Hard Knockers.

Tickets are available for $12 in advance and $15 at the door. Visit for advance tickets and season passes. Discounted tickets available for children 12 and younger. Games in the past have sold out, so the league strongly recommends ordering in advance.
