Rock Coast Roller Derby is Midcoast Maine's one and only roller derby league. We are a skater-owned, volunteer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, founded in 2011. We have been proud members of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) since 2014.
Rock Coast Roller Derby’s vision is to be an inclusive, diverse community that takes pride in supporting one another as well as other organizations within the mid-coast Maine community. As a democratically-run, competitive roller derby league, we strive to foster a safe environment for members to find their voice and their power, train our members to be strong in body and in mind, demonstrate good sportsmanship, and help further promote the sport of roller derby in our community and beyond.
General membership is open to anyone 18+. Skater membership is open to anyone 18+ who is a woman, transgender woman, intersex woman, as well as non-binary and gender-expansive individuals who feel most comfortable playing women’s roller derby. Please see the WFTDA gender statement for more information. All are welcome regardless of sexual preference, race, nationality, social status, skating ability or previous athletic experience.
Our league and our members are welcoming to anyone who is passionate about roller derby and embodies our mission statement and core values. The roller derby community is widespread and continuously growing worldwide. We believe the diversity within the roller derby community should be encouraged and celebrated, roller derby is for everyone.
Until the fall of 2019, RCRD was known as the Rock Coast Rollers. You can read more about our name change here.
