The Classic City Rollergirls visited the Athens Community Council on Aging on Thursday, Feb. 21. 

Five rollergirls – Cirque du Slay, Sylvia Rath, Hellatrix DeRanged, Fun Size and Kill Easy– discussed safety practices and rules of roller derby commonly applied during a bout, which is a match in roller derby-speak. They showed the crowd what it looks like for a jammer to break through the blockers, who would be attempting to keep the skater from passing.

“They’ll definitely be chatty about the rollergirls,” said Stacia Coggins, an employee at the Athens Community Council on Aging. “They’ll ask about them again, the ones who are really into it.”
