What we liked: It is a sporting event, and like all sporting events they're interesting for kids to watch and be exposed to. I think this would be perfect for a girl that's a little older, about 5 and older, to see. You don't get as much of an opportunity to see women in sporting events with crowds cheering them on. In Roller Derby you get to see strong women which I think is a good thing for young girls and young boys to see.
What we would change: For younger toddlers with little attention spans it can be difficult to keep them focused. My youngest spent most of the time climbing the stairs of Dorton Arena finding every dirty corner he could to stick his hands in. In addition, some of the names of the players and attire can be a bit mature, but it was still a family-friendly event with lots of kids in the stands.
