The league was founded after a Lincoln-based band toured to Austin, Texas, and got to know a roller derby league there. This inspired Jackie Geist and her friends, back in Lincoln, to set up No Coast, in the home of the National Museum of Roller Skating.
The league played its first public bout in March 2006, attracting a crowd of around 2,000 fans. Although the league initially had several of its own teams, these were later abolished, in order to focus on interleague play. In 2010, they hosted the WFTDA South Central Regional Tournament, entering seeded eighth, but finishing in fifth place.
