The North Star Roller Girls (NSRG) is a 100% female skater owned and operated amateur roller derby league which plays by Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) rules. NSRG plays at the Minneapolis Convention Center. In December 2008, NSRG was admitted to WFTDA as its 65th member league.

The North Star Roller Girls League has four teams: the Banger Sisters, Delta Delta Di, Kilmore Girls, and the Violent Femmes. NSRG also has a traveling team, the Supernovas, composed of skaters from all four league teams, which competes against leagues from other areas. The North Star Supernovas are ranked 77th in the world by the WFTDA (as of October, 2014).[1]

Business Organization[edit]

The NSRG is an LLC (limited liability corporation) formed pursuant to the laws of the State of Minnesota. Skaters are not paid to play, and referees, announcers, and support staff are all volunteers. NSRG is committed to partnering with local businesses and charitable organizations in an effort to strengthen and support the community at large.
