Capital City Rollers (CCR) is Fredericton's only women's flat track roller derby league. The league includes players and coaches from our Spitfires travel team as well as our officials, trainers, and countless volunteers. Founded in Fredericton in 2010, the Capital City Rollers promote the progressive growth and sustainability of women's flat track roller derby as a competitive sport. The Capital City Rollers adhere to the principles, guidelines, and regulations of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). We welcome all individuals interested in roller derby and strive to create a safe and inclusive environment based on the gender policy established by WFTDA.
Roller derby is a high speed full contact game played by women who skate fast and hit hard. Interested in joining us? We have a Learn to Skate program each fall where we train you how to be a roller derby player or referee! Please contact us if you are interested in training to become a player, volunteer, or referee.
The Capital City Rollers have always been very active in our community. We "roll" in municipal parades, we show off our skills at Harvest Jazz & Blues, we work security at various local events including River Jam and Winterfest, and we have also participated in Frostival! If you ever need us at one of your events, please let us know!
While adult roller derby has had a presence in Fredericton for the past 8 years, Junior Roller Derby is just emerging. The Fredericton Junior Roller Derby Association is a separate organization but their coaches and trainers are CCR league members. FJRDA was the first junior roller derby association in NB, founded in 2016 and includes players, coaches, and trainers for the bEAST Coast Brawlers team. Since the FJRDA launched, there has been an explosive growth of junior roller derby in all of the Atlantic Provinces. FJRDA is a gender-inclusive league for skaters aged 8-17.
