Sisterhood. Skates. Empowerment.
Founded in 2011, Confluence Roller Derby is a nonprofit organization [501(c)3] that exists to provide women in St. Louis and the Metro East the unique opportunity to play flat track roller derby within a welcoming community that both supports skaters in their development as well as challenges them to realize their potential as athletes. We are a proud member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), and are internationally ranked.
The organization is currently comprised of 35+ skaters, as well as dozens of skating referees, non-skating officials, jeerleaders and other volunteers vital to our success. Read our full Mission Statement here.
Our bouts are family friendly and promise a unique entertainment experience for fans! Home bouts are held at Belle Clair Fairgrounds in Belleville, Illinois, about 20 minutes southeast of downtown Saint Louis and just down the road from Scott Air Force Base. It is easily accessible from I-55/70 or I-64 via I-255 and parking is free. Food and a full bar are available. Check out our 2016 schedule here!
We are a skater-run, grassroots, nonprofit organization. Every member contributes work hours each month to help run the business, and we all share in its success. We are amateur athletes who pay to play and support our league by holding fundraisers and securing sponsors from the local community. We are also dedicated to giving back to the community, helping to raise money for and donating time to area charities. You can also find us cleaning up a stretch of IL 159 in Madison County, and taking donations to area food pantries and animal shelters.
Skaters practice 4 times a week in addition to training outside of practice. The majority of our practices take place in Troy, IL although it’s not uncommon to find our skaters getting in some extra laps at rinks around the area. We welcome female skaters of all skill levels, from beginner to advanced to join us. We provide training, as well as a community who will embrace you for you! Roller derby provides challenges and the opportunity to develop skills like event planning, fundraising, and working as part of a team. We are also always seeking skating and non-skating officials, male or female, as well as jeerleaders and other volunteers. Learn more about Women's Flat Track Roller Derby here!
