About the Anchor City Rollers
The Anchor City Rollers are Halifax, Nova Scotia’s flat track roller derby league. The league was founded in August 2010 by a group of dedicated, enthusiastic, tough folks who decided to jump on quad skates and hit the pavement. Since then, the league has grown and evolved into a rockin’, riotous and remarkable creature. We held our first bout in June 2011, in front of 700+ spectators.
ACR consists of:
- Travel A team: Harbour Grudges
- Travel B team: Dockyard Brawlers
- Learn to Skate (new skater) training
- Ref and Non-Skating Official (NSO) Squad: The Harbour Patrol
- Behind-the-scenes volunteers
We are a non-profit organization. Each Anchor City Rollers event is 100% dependent on volunteer time and energy, and any money we raise goes back to the league to help pay for things like practice space and supplies. Our league is successful thanks to the support of our friends, family and community.
