The Lehigh Valley Rollergirls will be exhibiting their skating prowess at the 2011 edition of SportsFest which will be held July 14 – 17, 2011 at Cedar Beach Park in Allentown, Pa.
SportsFest strives to encourage individuals to adopt a healthy lifestyle through athletic pursuits. It is also a showcase for amateur athletes to engage in competition as well as provide exposure to an abundance of sporting events.
SportsFest has over 50 events scheduled and expects to play host to over 10,000 athletes and more than 150,000 spectators during the four day event. Events are held at various locations throughout Lehigh Valley.
The majority of activities will take place at Cedar Beach Park located on Allentown’s West Side. It is here you will be able to get a glimpse of activities ranging from WXW Wrestling, body building, a bikini contest, kickball, dodge ball, Celtic hurling, puttle, fencing, dog agility, and of course the Lehigh Valley Rollergirls.
The women of LVRG will be on hand to meet and greet their fans as well as showcase their amazing abilities during the event. In keeping with their mission to give back to the local community they will also be assisting with the event alongside SportsFest volunteers.
This is an opportunity for roller derby fans to meet the team members, take photos, get autographs and ask questions about the sport. The next home bout is also during the weekend of SportsFest (7/16 at Independence Family Fun Center), and fans can purchase tickets directly from team members prior to the match saving $2 off the door cost.
If you have been curious about roller derby or any of the other activities that will be showcased at the Fest come out and explore, you may just find a new passion and more importantly an excuse to get off the couch.
SportsFest provides a family friendly environment and all events are free of charge. Proceeds from the event go toward causes that benefit inner city youth and the community at large. There will be vendors on site offering food and merchandise for sale as well as an informational health and wellness expo.
SportsFest, “Be in it, or just be there!”
