Nidaros Roller Derby (NRD) is a Norwegian flat-track roller derby league based in Trondheim. Founded in 2010, the league currently consists of a single team which competes against teams from other leagues.

Nidaros was the first roller derby league in Norway,[1] founded in August 2010,[2] and had more than thirty skaters by November.[3] By late 2011, it was one of three roller derby leagues in Norway, and was a finalist in the national "Klubben i mitt hjerte" (club in my heart) competition.[4]

In October 2012, Nidaros was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme,[5] and it became a full WFTDA member in September 2013.[6]
