About Us

North Star Roller Derby

North Star Roller Derby is a member-run, nonprofit roller derby league based in Minneapolis. Skaters play a version of the roller derby you may have seen on TV in the 80s, but on a flat track instead of a banked track. It’s a full contact athletic competition with rules and regulations.
NSRD’s main focus is athleticism and the empowerment of members both on and off the track. As a member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), NSRD advocates for the growth of roller derby in Minnesota and throughout the world. NSRD members are also proudly involved in their community and partner with local artists, musicians, businesses and charities to enrich their home.
NSRD plays often at the Lee & Rose Warner Coliseum.  At the Coliseum, they’ve been able to enhance fans’ experience with videos, a beer garden, and special box seats.

Mission Statement

North Star Roller Derby aims to build awareness and promote the sport of roller derby through training, community engagement, and competition at a local, national, and international level. Through advocating teamwork, engagement and athleticism at all levels, we aim to empower women and non-binary athletes both on and off the derby track.
