The Utica Rollergirls Roller Derby League is an all-woman, skater owned, flat track roller derby league. The Utica Rollergirls was founded in August 2008, with the intention of bringing roller derby to Utica and providing a new and exciting form of entertainment, while also serving as a charitable organization in the community.
There is not typical roller girl. The league is comprised of strong, intelligent women who share the common goals of giving back to our community, staying physically active, and building lasting friendships within the league and with other like-minded individuals across the country. We come from a variety of backgrounds and represent a wide range of ages, shapes, and skill levels.
