What time should I be there?
General Admission seating begins at least 30 minutes before the first whistle, and it is advised to arrive early to ensure that you get the seats you want.
What kind of seating is there?
Most of our games take place at our warehouse which has two large sets of bleachers, folding chairs, and even VIP couches! Fans are able to bring camp chairs if they prefer their own seating. Memorial Auditorium has plenty of theater style seating, but no track side seating.
If you need considerations for handicap seating or limited mobility seating at either venue, please contact Sacred’s game production team at least 48 hours prior to the game.
Can I bring a camera or video camera?
Yes, we love fan pictures and videos! If you do take pictures please make sure to share them with us on Facebook (post to our page) or on Instagram and Twitter please tag them #sacredcityderbygirls.
Please note that only photographers and videographers with media credentials will be allowed on the track during game play, all others will need to take pictures from their seats or the sidelines. Skater safety comes first!
For media credential consideration please contact our game production team 2 weeks before the game you plan to attend.
What kind of food and beverages are available?
Sacred provides all of the concessions at Sacred Headquarters. Offerings may include: hot dogs, nachos, chips, candy, soda, water, and of course beer! Prices for food and drink range from 50 cents to $6.
At the Memorial Auditorium concessions are provided by the venue so the choices can vary. Expect higher prices from $3-$12.
Is it OK to bring my children to Sacred City Derby Girls games?
Sacred strives to create a family-friendly atmosphere at all of our games. Many of our skaters are also mothers, so we want the whole Sacred family to be able to enjoy our events!
Here are some things to consider when bringing children under 12:
- Our games are full-contact and intense, which means injuries can happen. On occasion skaters must be helped off the track by emergency medical personnel. This may be scary for young children.
- Some derby girl and staff names contain words or innuendos that are PG-13.
- We sell alcohol at our games and though we strive to keep people at their limit, it is possible that people will be drunk.
- Roller derby games can be loud! Between the DJ, announcers, cheering, and skater communication on the track, the noise can be overwhelming for little ones sometimes. We recommend baby noise cancelling/reducing headphones for children under 5.
- Games run between 2 and 4 hours, depending on the line up.
- Children may not sit track side. An adult should always sit between children and the track.
What kind of security is there at games?
Sacred takes the safety of our fans very seriously! We have our own dedicated volunteer security guards (most of whom are professional security personnel) and our venues George Sim Community Center and the Memorial Auditorium provide additional security.
What can I NOT bring to a game?
- No Weapons! We have a zero tolerance policy for violence or intimidation.
- No outside food or beverages (except water)**This rule does not apply to Sacred Headquarters**
- No backpacks or large bags (nothing bigger than a purse or a camera bag)
- No personal chairs or stools (seat cushions are OK) **This rule does not apply to Sacred Headquarters**
- No whistles (they interfere with our referees’ whistles)
- And like all other public spaces in Sacramento, smoking is not allowed in our venues. Smoking must take place at least 25ft from the doors of the venue.
Is there a place for vendor tables at your games?
Sacred Headquarters has very limited space, so we can rarely accommodate vendors at this location. The Sacramento Memorial Auditorium has lots of room, and we love having vendors there!
For vendor consideration please contact our game production team 2 weeks before the game you plan to attend.
