Harbor City Roller Derby (HCRD) is a women's flat track roller derby league based in Duluth, Minnesota. Founded in 2007, the league consists of two teams, which compete against teams from other leagues. Harbor City is a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).[1]


Harbor City was founded as Harbor City Roller Dames in January 2007 by Melissa LaTour, known as "Ginger Suicide".[2][3] For a while, it was run by Michael and Mary Utecht,[4] but in October 2009, it became skater-owned.[2]

Harbor City played its first full season in 2010, and sold out a 1,200-seat venue for one bout.[3]

The league was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in October 2011,[5] and became a full member of the WFTDA in June 2013,[6] and debuted in the WFTDA Rankings on March 31, 2014 at 129 overall.[7] In August 2014, Harbor City hosted one of the WFTDA Division 2 playoff tournaments.[8]
