Chippewa Valley Roller Derby
The Chippewa Valley Roller Derby is Eau Claire’s original female flat track roller derby league. Originally named Chippewa Valley Roller Girls, we now do business as Chippewa Valley Roller Derby. CVRD is managed and operated entirely by the skaters via an elected board of directors and numerous skater-led committees. We work together to put on all of our home events, organize fundraisers, promote and market the league and maintain relationships with charities in our community. During our season, we practice twice a week and have one or two games per month. During our off-season, the league focuses on recruitment, fundraising, and skills training. We are always recruiting skaters, referees, and volunteers! Anyone, male or female, 18+ can join in both on- or off-skates positions. CVRD is an equal opportunity sport and offers all minorities, body shapes, and LGBTQA+ a friendly space to participate. Everyone that is interested in joining can participate at their own level.
