The Alamo City Rollergirls (ACRG) are San Antonio’s original all-female competitive flat track roller derby league. ACRG, LLC is a skater-owned and operated all female flat-track roller derby league based in San Antonio, Texas. We are dedicated to the community and building support for women’s sports and the cultural arts. ACRG is made up of dedicated and empowered women who multi-task careers, motherhood, activism, sports, and entertainment. The league promotes and supports healthy competition between determined, beautiful, and unique women.
ACRG was founded in 2006 by two amazing women, Kat “Kitty Glitter” Feuerbacher and Cate “Nita Spankin” Compton, whose mission was to bring the fast-paced sport of roller derby to the people of San Antonio, TX. From its humble grass-roots beginnings these women were able to recruit skaters and volunteers and form a league with aspirations to compete at a national level. After four years, we’re still here and hitting hard than ever!
In the national scene, ACRG is proud to be an active member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association. So what is the WFTDA?
The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association is the governing body for women’s flat track roller derby, and a membership organization for the leagues to collaborate and network. The organization created and maintained the first standardized rule set for the flat track game, which is now in its fourth edition. The WFTDA also serves as the sanctioning body for flat track roller derby games, hosts regional and national tournaments, sets safety standards, provides roller derby insurance to athletes and leagues, and serves as a networking venue for flat track roller derby leagues to share resources and get advice. There are currently 78 WFTDA member leagues. Check out their website at www.wftda.com
