Keweenaw Roller Derby (KRD), formerly Keweenaw Roller Girls, is a flat track roller derby league based out of the Keweenaw Peninsula in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The league formed in September 2012 for individuals over the age of 18 and draws its members from all over the copper country. KRD is also a member league in the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association.
KRD accepts those who are willing to work hard and have fun regardless of shape, size, orientation, and level of athleticism. Through practice, team involvement, and participation in league business, KRD fosters self-esteem, community spirit, sportsmanship, and leadership skills. The league also coordinates with other roller derby leagues in the UP to establish a thriving, committed roller derby community throughout the area.
