New Member: Appalachian Roller Derby

Posted By: Margaret Liller Member News & Promotions ,

We would like to welcome Appalachian Roller Derby as the latest addition to the Boone Chamber!


APPALACHIAN ROLLER DERBY is an 18+ all-female skater-run flat track roller derby league based in Boone, North Carolina. We are a 501c3 Non Profit and our mission is to encourage female athleticism, empowerment, and community awareness through various activities and events throughout the year.

The league was founded in March, 2010 by an Appalachian State University student making a post on Facebook. Thanks to Facebook and the help of local businesswomen, over 80 women showed up at Skate World to check out the revival of roller derby. ARD has since attracted more than 35 very committed skaters 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, as well as amazing referees and NSOs!
