Men's Roller Derby Team Forming in Asheville

We are currently recruiting skaters, officials and volunteers. You do not need to know how to skate! Right now we are working out practice days and times to try to accommodate everyone's schedule. You must be 18+ and identify as anything but female. There is a team already in Asheville for skaters who identify as female.  
​The team is Gay affirming and accepting. 
The Men's Roller Derby Association (MRDA) is the governing body for men's roller derby. Here is a link to their non-discrimination policy.
  Roller derby is known for being one of the most open and accepting sports. Here are links to articles from Huffington Post, and ESPN-W.
