Albany All Stars Roller Derby (AASRD) is a flat track roller derby league based in Albany, New York.[1] AASRD was founded in 2006[2][3] and is the capital region's first all-woman roller derby league.[4] The league comprises over 60 skaters who make up AASRD's interleague and intra-league teams.[5] Home bouts are held at The Washington Avenue Armory in Albany, NY.[6]

League History[edit]

AASRD is made of up three home teams, the Department of Public Hurts (DPH), the Empire Skate Troopers (EST)[7][8] and the Capital City Legislayers (CCL) as well as two interleague teams, an A Team[9] made up of the league's best players and a B team[10] made up of all other skaters.[11]

After their inaugural season they were voted "Best New Sports Team" in the Metroland Reader's Poll.[12]

Charitable Work/Activity[edit]

Skaters for the Albany All Stars are involved in charitable activities throughout the year;[13][14] and have even rappelled off buildings to fund raise for the Special Olympics[15] and streaked down Lark Street as a sponsor of the Santa Speedo Sprint[16] to benefit The Albany Damien Center.

Awards/Recognition[edit]

the Albany All Stars Roller Derby League is mentioned in several local "best of" lists including: Metroland Readers' Poll – "Best Time to be Had in the Capital Region for Under $10" (2011)[17] Metroland Readers' Poll – "Best Place to See and be Seen" (2011)[17] Metroland Readers' Poll – "Best Evidence That the Region Is Looking Up" (2009)[18] Metroland Readers' Poll – "Best Time to be Had in the Capital Region for Under $10" (2009)[18] Metroland Readers' Poll – "Best New Sports Team" (2008)[12]
