Appalachian Roller Derby
Boone, NC, United States of America
Appalachian Roller Derby is an 18+ all-female skater-run flat track roller derby league based in Boone, North Carolina. Our mission is to encourage female athleticism, empowerment and community awareness through various activities and events throughout the year.team
The league was founded in March, 2010 by an ASU student making a post on Facebook. Thanks to Facebook the help of local businesswomen, over 80 women showed up at Skateworld to check out the revival of roller derby. ARD has since attracted more than 20 very committed women from around the high country. We have two amazing coaches that volunteer their time to help us train and practice both on and off skates!
Our home bouts are played at the Holmes Convocation Center in Boone, NC. Our Semi-home bouts are played at Skateland in Hickory, NC.
