Auld Reekie Roller Girls is a not-for-profit, grassroots, flat track roller derby team based in Edinburgh. Founded in 2008, ARRG was the first Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) member in Scotland. We are a dynamic community that is supportive and inclusive in a competitive environment, in which skaters, officials and non-skating members can be the best they can be.
Being one of the pioneering leagues in Europe, we work tirelessly to contribute to the global development of roller derby. Through our training, coaching and by encouraging hundreds of people to participate and excel in our sport, our members better themselves physically and mentally. We strive to create fearless, formidable travel teams to compete locally and internationally at the highest levels. We are passionate individuals who work together to better the league, in the knowledge that we are part of a positive, unique and revolutionary movement.
ARRG are continually growing, and are always taking in new members. We are a a women’s league, and we welcome skaters who self-identify as women, including transwomen. We also welcomes gender expansive people (such as those identifying as non-binary, genderqueer or agender) if women’s roller derby is the version of the sport with which they most closely identify. People who self-identifying as male can take on roles as referees and non-skating officials. At ARRG, we constantly strive for inclusivity.
