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.
Meet some of our newly elected BOD and committee heads!
It takes a village to run a roller derby league! Put faces to names on Committee Heads and BOD page.

What a Great Bout Day!
Congrats everyone, we did it! We couldn't be more proud of our skaters, refs, NSO's, and Volunteers. And thank you to everyone who came to cheer us on!
Calling all derby-lovers! WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Do you want to:
Support local roller derby and get involved with an awesome community of skating enthusiasts (aka best people in the world)?
Better understand derby rules? (Don't we all!)
-Just... be a little bossy?
As we return to play, Hellgate Roller Derby is ALWAYS looking for volunteer refs, non-skating officials, and other miscellaneous volunteers. No knowledge or experience necessary!
We'll teach you the rules, procedures, and skills needed for your role! We are ESPECIALLY in need of on-skates refs, so if you're a retired derby player looking to dust off your skates, or an active roller skater not interested in PLAYING derby, please let us know! Email to volunteer!
We Have Space To Share!
Located in the heart of downtown, we want to partner with people who are looking for multi use space.
Hellgate Roller Derby League' space at 500 East Spruce St, Suite B is 2300 square feet with approximately 1800 square feet of open studio space. It's great for birthday parties, fitness classes, pop-up shops, small concerts, and more!
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.
