Port City Roller Derby’s junior league will get 2014 rolling with their “Snow Ball” bout on Saturday, Jan. 11, in the Oswego YMCA Armory.

For the bout featuring two teams of Port City Roller Derby junior skaters, ages 10 to 17, doors will open at 5 p.m. with action beginning at 6 p.m. in the armory, corner of West First and Utica streets in Oswego.

It is the second event of the juniors first full competitive season, a prelude to a Feb. 8 home bout versus a juniors team from Buffalo’s Queen City league.

A portion of proceeds of the January bout will support the Children’s Museum of Oswego.

Tickets can be purchased at the door, but will cost $12 for adults. Attendees interested in trackside seating are encouraged to bring their own chairs.
