Acadiana Roller Girls

ABOUT THE TEAM

           


The Acadiana Roller Girls are Lafayette’s first 
women-only, flat track roller derby league.  We are a non-profit organization who seeks not only to succeed in the athletic arena but also to give back to the community that supports us.

The league was founded in 2009.  We recruited a fledgling group of skaters and turned them into a winning team.  Our current roster has around 45+ skating members, many of whom recruit mid-season and go from fresh meat training to bout ready in 6 weeks or less.

In 2013 we created our second team, the Vermilionville Sirens, which had their inaugural bout May 4th and finished the season with a 4-1 record.

Our All Stars finished  the season with a ranking of 7th in Derby South and qualified to play in the Derby South Playoffs: the Southern Belle Ringer Tournament for the third year in a row, which we won in 2012.

Our skaters are women from all walks of life who range in age from 18 to over 50. They are students, 
stay-at-home moms, and all  professions. Some are veteran athletes while others have never played a sport before joining the league

Our referees and coaches are the men and women that keep our skaters bout-ready and up to date on the rules and regulations according to the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). Non-skating officials (NSO) keep score, track penalties, and assist the referees. We also rely on volunteers to help make the bouts happen. They work the door on bout night, help promote the event, and also help set up the track and clean up after the bout. The league also holds fundraising events and makes team appearances all year long.

We are fiercely committed to succeed, both on and off the track; our 
community service positively impacts local groups and we are always on the look out for more ways to support those around us
.

 We need you!
We are always looking to add to our league!
The Acadiana Roller Girls  are always looking for new skaters, referees and volunteers. Don't know how to skate? We'll teach you! Don't have gear? We have loaners.  Click Here  or Contact any Derby Girl for practice info. Hope to see you on skates!
