The Muddy River Rollers (MRR) is a Flat Track Roller Derby league based out of Moncton, New Brunswick. MRR was founded in May 2010 when Carole Maillet (aka Burn) held a Meet & Greet and first practice at the Moncton Boys' and Girls' club to see if there would be any interest in creating a roller derby league. The great turn-out showed an overwhelming desire for a new sports league here in Moncton. Many had been interested in roller derby for a long time, especially since its re-popularization in the early 2000s
Enter Coach Trevor “Jesus Take the Wheels” Goodwin a couple of weeks later and the wheels were literally in motion. Players from all over the region dusted off their old roller-blades, 1970’s roller skates or borrowed their kids' skate sneaks until they could order proper roller derby skates and gear off the internet.
It’s become MRR’s mission to provide an outlet that inspires healthy competition, builds self-confidence, and blows off daily stress! We pride ourselves on providing a safe - yet thrilling - avenue for people of all shapes, sizes, ages, and athletic ability to unite through sport. Our goal is to bring positive attention to the exciting sport of roller derby. We believe in a “by the skaters, for the skaters” approach, and are working together to become the #1 East Coast Roller Derby League.
Our league is run by busy parents, students, professionals and all-round devoted athletes elected to represent us and address all issues that come with running a league. We are proud to be a self-taught, self-run, non-profit organization, and are a part of the WFTDA (Women’s Flat Track Derby Association). We encourage all forms of participation in our league, including coaches, referees, and non-skating officials.
