Guest Code of Conduct

Pioneer Valley Roller Derby strives to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for all of our event participants. We ask for your assistance in creating and maintaining an environment that is free of:

  • Abusive/foul language and obscene gestures directed towards skaters, officials, mascots, staff and volunteers, vendors, and/or other fans.
  • Intoxicated and/or drug-impaired individuals.
  • Smoking, except in designated areas (outside the venue, 25 feet away from entrances).
  • Prohibited items such as weapons, non-service animals, air horns, vuvuzelas, megaphones, and laser pointers, and other items deemed inappropriate, harmful, or hazardous by event staff.
  • Guests without proper authorization or credentials entering or attempting to enter restricted areas (e.g., only those with Media passes will be allowed in the center of the track).
  • Banners or signs that obstruct the view of guests or contain objectionable subject matter.
  • Game interference (including entering the track or throwing objects onto the track, and extraneous whistles), or other behavior disruptive to the event.

Individuals not abiding by this Guest Code of Conduct are subject to ejection from the venue and will not be entitled to ticket replacement or refund. Entry to the venue shall constitute acceptance of the Guest Code of Conduct and venue regulations.
