05. Additional Info

The Cape Fear Roller Girls are Wilmington’s premier women’s flat track roller derby league. The league is made up of strong, independent women of all ages and from all walks of life. The Cape Fear Roller Girls, founded in 2005 with only a few members, worked diligently to be recognized as a member of the worldwide Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). We earned this coveted honor in 2010. Currently we continue to maintain this distinction with more than thirty members.

As a skater owned and operated nonprofit organization, the Cape Fear Roller Girls pride ourselves on being a league “for the skaters, by the skaters.” We are dedicated to the development of member athleticism and encourage the physical, mental and emotional training needed while respecting and valuing the individual strengths each member contributes to the league. All of our skaters are passionate about community development and are actively involved in improving the areas in which we live.

Our skaters and volunteers are steadfast in their efforts on and off the track to develop and maintain a positive, supportive league and community by contributing both time and money to other non-profit organizations. We are proud to represent Wilmington at home and on the road while competing in the remarkable sport of roller derby.

The Cape Fear Roller Girls aim to provide quality, entertaining, and family-friendly events that benefit our entire community. A percentage of the proceeds from each home bout are donated to a local (charitable) nonprofit organization. Over $15,000 has been donated towards making our community a better place.

Contrary to popular belief, those of us involved in modern day roller derby are not paid. In fact, our events are produced by devoted fans, volunteers, and skaters. Proceeds from ticket sales, merchandise, and league fees are used to cover various organizational expenses such as venue rental, travel costs, training facility use, and uniforms.

Sponsors and community involvement are extremely important to the success of the Cape Fear Roller Girls. We take great pride in working closely with our sponsors and ensure they receive the recognition they deserve.

Roller Derby provides a unique local, exciting, empowering, and family friendly sporting event at a reasonable price.
