Bleeding Heartland Roller Derby (BHRD) is a roller derby league based in Bloomington, Indiana, United States. Founded in 2006, the league currently fields A and B travel teams which compete against other leagues.


The league played its first home bout in August 2007.[1] Founded as "Bleeding Heartland Rollergirls", the league rebranded in 2014[2] as Bleeding Heartland Roller Derby, to "more accurately reflect the composition of our organization", as noted in an announcement on their official Facebook page.[3]

The league was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association in December 2008.[4] It competed in the 2010 Spring Roll event, hosted by the Fort Wayne Derby Girls.[5] Bleeding Heartland initially had a losing record,[5] and finished both the 2009 and 2010 seasons ranked in 16th place in the North Central Region, but rose to 13th over the course of 2011.

In 2013, Bleeding Heartland qualified for the WFTDA Division 1 Playoffs for the first time, ultimately finishing the Fort Wayne tournament in 10th place.[6]
