Hurricane Alley Roller Derby Accepted as Women’s Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice

(Corpus Christi, TX December 20, 2014) The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) is proud to announce today that Hurricane Alley Roller Derby (H.A.R.D.) has been accepted as an “Apprentice” affiliate of the WFTDA, the governing body for women's amateur flat track roller derby.

“This announcement is especially epic for our league and city, states Jammie Fisher league co-founder. Our acceptance into the program is the first step in legitimizing our league on an international level and placing our city on the WFTDA map. Membership in this organization brings with it opportunities to host tournaments and attract visitors to our city”.

As an Apprentice affiliate of the WFTDA, H.A.R.D. joins the ranks of more than 300 all-female, skater-owned-and-operated leagues worldwide that have united to lead the growing sport of women's flat track roller derby.

WFTDA apprentice leagues are matched with veteran member leagues who guide them in the processes and requirements necessary to become a full member of the Association. WFTDA Apprentice leagues are considered “pre-members” of the WFTDA and have access to many of the resources and benefits of full WFTDA membership.

H.A.R.D. will begin their 2015 season on Saturday, April 4th at the American Bank Center. As they enter into their 10th season, the league expects record attendance. Our goal has always been to bring family friendly entertainment to Corpus, while showcasing the athletic sport of women’s roller derby, says Jammie Fisher. We are so proud and thankful to our fans, this accomplishment is the first of many for our league and we could not have done it without them.
