The APPALACHIAN ROLLERGIRLS are an 18+ all-female skater-run flat track roller derby league based in Boone, North Carolina. We are a 501c3 Non Profit and our mission is to encourage female athleticism, empowerment, and community awareness through various activities and events throughout the year.
The league was founded in March, 2010 by an Appalachian State University student making a post on Facebook. Thanks to Facebook and the help of local businesswomen, over 80 women showed up at Skateworld to check out the revival of roller derby. ARG has since attracted more than 20 very committed women from around the High Country. We have two amazing coaches that volunteer their time to help us train and practice both on and off skates!
