ABOUT THE TOURNAMENT

Y'Allstars is a pro-bowl style tournament, showcasing top-tier roller derby athletes and teams from across the continent. Competing teams are made up of highly-talented skaters from different cities and leagues, ultimately forming "superteams" that represent a dedicated region or cause.

The tournament will feature a total of 15 teams competing within three divisions: Adult Women's, Adult Open, and Juniors (aka kids' roller derby). Local teams Red Stick Roller Derby Juniors and Team Louisiana will be competing at the event, representing the Pelican State with pride!

Y'Allstars marks the first event of its kind here in Louisiana, one that we hope will return year after year! For more details about venue, schedule, teams and more, visit our Tournament Info page.

ROLLER DERBY x MARDI GRAS

Y'Allstars will be held the weekend directly after Mardi Gras!

Mardi Gras is on Tuesday, February 21. Louisiana goes into full Carnival mode from about Feb 15-Feb 21, with plenty of parades and revelry.

If you are coming into town for the tournament, we recommend making travel plans ASAP as this is a peak travel time, especially for those flying into New Orleans.

A tractor pulls a vibrant Mardi Gras float down a street lined with parade-goers on both sides. The trees along the street are draped with purple, green and gold paper that is fluttering in the wind above the crowd.
