The Argentina All Stars represent Argentina in women's international roller derby. The team was first formed to compete at the 2011 Roller Derby World Cup, and finished the tournament in last place, out of thirteen teams.

Several team members struggled to obtain appropriate equipment in advance of the World Cup; a benefit was organised by the Derby News Network, and various sponsors donated kit to the team.[1] However, Nina Brava, one of the team's skaters, claimed that Argentina had an advantage in that they had been able to practise together for more hours than their opponents.[2]

After the group stage of the World Cup, Argentina were ranked twelfth, with no wins. They then lost narrowly to Team Scotland, by 114 points to 91, thereby finishing the tournament in last place.[3]
