November 2013 Featured Skater:

Chieftain MacMenace

Your derby name and number?  Chieftain MacMenace, 1745

Meaning behind or reason you chose your name and number?  A number of years ago, I attend the Highland Games and Celtic Festival in South Charleston.  It seemed like every clan tent my friend Judy and I went to had someone calling themselves Chieftain Something-or-Other.  Judy and I started referring to one another as “Chieftain,” and it stuck.   As for MacMenace, I wanted something that sounded Scottish (hence the “Mac”) but also menacing . . . Once I decided to go with Chieftain, MacMenace was easy.  1745 is the year of the Jacobite Uprising in Scotland, Bonnie Prince Charlie and all that.

Charleston, West Virginia— The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) is proud to announce today that Heart of Appalachia Roller Derby has been accepted as an “Apprentice” affiliate of the WFTDA, the governing body for women's amateur flat track roller derby.

 

“Heart of Appalachia Roller Derby is honored, and quite frankly, ecstatic to be extended Apprentice membership in the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association,” said league president, Ariana Kincaid.  “We’ve just completed a winning season, and we’re heading into our third full season of competition in 2014.  Doing so as an Apprentice league makes it that much more exciting.”

 

As an Apprentice affiliate of the WFTDA, Heart of Appalachia Roller Derby joins the ranks of more than 250 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.

 

Heart of Appalachia Roller Derby finished its 2013 season with a 7-3 record.  H.A.R.D. is currently practicing with players from across West Virginia as part of the West Virginia All-Stars, set to participate in the 2013 Battle of the All-Stars, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, December 13-15, 2013.  Their 2014 season begins in March.

The WFTDA also serves as the sanctioning body for games, hosts tournaments, sets safety standards and provides insurance to athletes and leagues. There are currently 197 WFTDA member leagues and more than 98 apprentice leagues worldwide.
