Maine Roller Derby Finally Legal
Roller Derby is now a legal sport in Maine. There has a growing popularity for Roller Derby in the state but an obscure law made it illegal. The law basically said one skater had to avoid a collision with another skater.
That obscure law would have also ban hockey in the state because it only stated ‘skater’ but a new law introduced to legalize the contact sport became law this week. Governor LePage allowed it to become law without his signature.
Maine Roller Derby has big, big plans, including buying a venue, hosting tournaments and maybe starting a youth skating program.
