Rose City Rollers


To serve women and girls who want to play the team sport of roller derby, connect with an inclusive community, and realize their power both on skates and off.

Bottom Line for Portland

More than 60 new adult and youth skaters show up to RCR orientation, held every two months. These women are then able to access the health, community and mentorship benefits of being an RCR member—that’s 60 more empowered women each month making Portland a better place to live.

“I didn’t join looking for friends, but found the best ones. I didn’t join to compete, but found a love of teamwork and competition. I didn’t join to learn to love myself, but found true acceptance for the first time.” 

—Michelle Welton, skater and board member, Rose City Rollers
