We Need Your Help!

We recently moved from The Furnace to a new practice space and, unfortunately, our new home (that we were so excited about!) will be unavailable indefinitely due to unforeseen and unavoidable complications. Our brand-new rental agreement has been terminated, leaving our league without a home.

Our league is working hard to find a new space as soon as possible, because we cannot have regular practices without somewhere to skate. We are heartbroken by this unexpected loss, but are rallying together, as the Hellgate Roller Derby Family, to find a solution and a home.

This is where YOU come in. 

We are asking our community to help us identify any available spaces, resources, ideas, etc. that may help us find our new home.

Our gear is soft, non-abrasive, and non-damagjng to floors. We are willing to do a skating demonstration on any floor surface. We are looking for a gymnasium, or other large space that would allow us to rent (hourly/weekly/monthly). We are open to any and all options so please comment below or reach out if you have any suggestions of spaces available in the Missoula Area.

We are a nonprofit focused on bringing flat track roller derby to all ages, genders, and abilities in the Missoula Area community. And our teams are working hard towards our 2024 bouting season. Roller Derby has a rich history in this community, and we are looking for your help now to support our skaters during this difficult time.

Special Thanks to Our Sponsors!

Borderless Belong: Black Diaspora, Team Indigenous Rising and Jewish Roller Derby Logos

Hellgate Roller Derby stands in support of borderless teams and minority communities. 

You belong in all spaces, including roller derby. The treatment of Black Diaspora Roller Derby and Team Indigenous Rising at the recent Battle of the All Stars tournament was unacceptable. We encourage you to read their statements.

We all have a responsibility to do better to build a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive community in roller derby. HRD will be investing in DEI/anti-racism training. We encourage other members of the roller derby community to do the same, and donate to these teams if able.

The members of HRD are athletes who train to the fullest of their individual abilities, respect their teammates and competitors, and love the sport of roller derby. Our goal is to promote strength and self-esteem and to encourage camaraderie and teamwork among all members. 

We embrace members of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, and skill levels. Our skaters work to increase their skills through discipline, hard work, and focus. 

Hellgate Roller Derby is proud to carry on the tradition of roller derby and strives to create a physically demanding sport that inspires members of all ages to embrace their inner strength, self-confidence, and competitiveness while entertaining our fans. Hellgate Roller Derby members are also encouraged to donate their time and/or money to local communities and other nonprofits.
