History and organization[edit]

The league was founded in May 2006,[2] the first flat track league in northern Kentucky.[3] It held its first season in 2008,[4] and, by 2011, the league had more than forty skaters.[5] By late 2011, the league had expanded its fanbase such that home games were held at the Bank of Kentucky Center.[2]

Black-n-Bluegrass was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in April 2010,[6] and became a full member of the WFTDA in March 2012.[7]
