Who Are We? AKRD
Akron Roller Derby (AKRD) is a skater-operated, flat track roller derby league and 501c3 nonprofit organization based in Akron, Ohio. We were founded in 2016 with the merger of two Akron-based leagues: NEO Roller Derby & Rubber City Roller Girls.
The league includes 30+ league members forming two teams: the Akron Roller Derby All-Stars, our best skaters that compete for regional and national ranking, and the AK Rowdy Rollers, our intermediate team that competes against other leagues' B-teams, but not for ranking. Akron Roller Derby All-Stars are ranked at or around #141 out of 368 leagues in the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) rankings.
We are committed to fostering the sport of women’s flat track roller derby and providing athletic entertainment while supporting charitable organizations that benefit the community.
