Shock Exchange proudly adopts new ruleset

April 1, 2015 by Jonathan R

The New York Shock Exchange (NYSE) Roller Derby League is proud to announce it will be adopting a new ruleset starting April 1st, 2015. Although the league has trained and played by the Men’s Roller Derby Association (MRDA) Rules since its publication of the first unisex version of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) ruleset in 2011, the NYSE Board of Directors unanimously voted to take the league in an exciting new direction based on long-standing trends of popularity. And what could be more popular than a feline version of the rules of Flat Track Roller Derby? Yes, the Cat Roller Derby Association (CRDA) has released an all cat ruleset right meow. No kitten.

You gotta be kitten me.

You gotta be kitten me.

Experience the hard-hitting, fast-paced, insane thrills of men’s roller derby.

Hockey players, speed skaters, rugby players, skateboarders, jam skaters, downhill skiers, and other high-intensity athletes are ideal.  Skating skills are a bonus but not required—we have a strong coaching program and have produced several accomplished derby players from all disciplines.

INLINES WELCOME. The sport of roller derby is played on quad skates, but inline skates are welcome for this tryout.  Please bring safety gear if you have it; knee and elbow pads, wrist guards, helmet, and mouthguard are required for play, but we do have loaner equipment we can share.  Equipment designed for hockey and skateboarding are welcome.  If you get a callback and make the team, you will be expected to have quad skates and your own safety gear.

January 8, 2015 by Jonathan R

This weekend the New York Shock Exchange kicks off its historic Shock Down Under tour! For the first time, a men’s team from the Northern Hempisphere, your very own New York Shock Exchange, will be traveling to the Southern Hempishere to play roller derby. The first game will be against Varsity Derby League’s Capital Carnage on Saturday, January 10 at 3:00pm local time (NOTE: 11:00pm EST, Friday, January 9 / 4:00am GMT, Saturday 10 January).

Help support this effort to grow the support of roller derby and get some snazzy, limited edition goodies here.

There has never been a Australia-MRDA face-off so it’s a bit of a toss-up how this will go. The Shockers do have quite a bit more experience so they are probably the favorites for these all of these incredible battles on roller skates

Additionally at the Bont Invitational, the Shockers will play in a showcase exhibition bout, featuring skaters from around the world, on Sunday, January 11 at 1:00pm (9:00pm EST, Saturday, January 10 / 2:00am GMT, Sunday 10 January) .

Wednesday, January 14 the Shockers host the first of their bootcamps.

On Friday, January 16 the Shockers land in Sydney to take on Tasmanian Mens Roller Derby’s Bass Straight Brawlers at 5:00pm local time (2:00am EST, January 16 / 7:00am GMT, 16 January).

Saturday, January 17 begins NYSE’S two-day bootcamp; and at 6:00pm local time (3:00am EST, January 16 / 8:00am GMT, 16 January) NYSE skates the final game of the tour against the Sydney City SMASH.
