Nidaros Roller Derby (NRD) is a women's flat track flat-track roller derby league based in Trondheim, Norway. Founded in 2010, Nidaros Roller Derby is a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).[1]

History[edit]

Nidaros was the first roller derby league in Norway,[2] founded in August 2010,[3] and had more than thirty skaters by November.[4] 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.[5]

In October 2012, Nidaros was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme,[6] and it became a full WFTDA member in September 2013.[7] Nidaros has two teams, an A and a B team, which play teams from other leagues.[8]

WFTDA competition[edit]

In 2016, Nidaros became the first team from Norway to qualify for WFTDA Playoffs, placed in the Division 2 Playoff in Lansing, Michigan.[9] At Lansing, Nidaros lost their first two games to Wasatch Roller Derby[10] (Salt Lake City, Utah) and Tri-City Roller Derby[11] (Kitchener, Ontario), before defeating Grand Raggidy Roller Girls (Grand Rapids, Michigan) 168-137 to finish in ninth place.[12]
