Hartford Area Roller Derby started in 2011 with only enough women to form one team. Since H.A.R.D.’s inception, we have grown substantially and now have enough members to support two bouting teams and three home teams, as well as staff several referees and non-skating officials.

Mission Statement

Hartford Area Roller Derby is organized exclusively for charitable purposes, more specifically to organize and promote Women’s Fast Track Roller Derby in the Greater Hartford area of Connecticut. HARD’s primary purposes are to foster the skills and athleticism of roller derby and to promote teamwork, respect, empowerment of women, and to build a community.
