The Ark Valley High Rollers (AVHR) are an all-female owned and operated flat track roller derby league comprised of skaters in the Arkansas Valley Area of Colorado. Through the sport of roller derby, the mission of AVHR is to develop and amplify the athleticism, wisdom, courage and fortitude of its skaters. AVHR aims to empower and inspire women by demonstrating physical and mental strength both on and off the track, and by providing positive athletic role models to our community.
The Ark Valley High Rollers graduated to a full member WFTDA League in December 2011. As a WFTDA league member, we now enjoy the benefits of full WFTDA membership, which include a vote on WFTDA policies and rules and eligibility for ranking and tournaments.
The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association now has 381 full member leagues and 66 apprentice leagues. (Check here to get the latest numbers, leagues are being added every day as this sport continues to grow!)
