Northern Brisbane Rollers (NBR) started out in 2008 with a handful of like minded women making their vision of a roller derby league on Brisbane’s Northside a reality. We run as a cooperative, meaning that our league is owned and run by its skaters with everyone doing their bit and everyone getting a say in the decision making.
This year we welcomed all of the wonderful women from United Brisbane Roller Derby, another Northside league, as we combine our resources and skill sets to form a bigger and better NBR!
We always have room to grow, and we’d love to hear from anyone wanting to begin their skating career and become a much valued member of the team, or anyone who wants to help out as a referee or non-skating official. We train on Sunday afternoons in Brendale, and Monday and Thursday evenings in Bowen Hills. New additions to our team are welcome any time!
To create excellence in the sport of Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby for the benefit of our athletes, our members and our audience. This is achieved by growing a strong, competitive and well managed league of committed skaters, members and supporters.
To create a safe and inclusive community for strong independent women to-
1.Enhance their health & well-being
2.Develop new skills
3.Breakdown preconceptions about women in sport
4.To have fun!
