League history

The league was founded after a Lincoln-based band toured to Austin, Texas, and got to know a roller derby league there. This inspired Jackie Geist and her friends to establish No Coast in Lincoln, the home of the National Museum of Roller Skating.

Roughly 350 fans attended No Coast's first exhibition bout in 2005, and the league played its first public bout in March 2006, attracting a crowd of around 2,000 fans. In May 2007, No Coast was announced as a new member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). Although the league initially had several of its own teams, these were later abolished, in order to focus on interleague play. As of 2016, No Coast fields two teams, the Mad Maxines (WFTDA A team) and the Road Warriors (B team).

From the league's formation into 2014, No Coast played its games at the Pershing Center, where they were used to drawing up to 2700 fans for events. Upon Pershing's closure in 2014, No Coast hosted at least one event that year at Pinnacle Bank Arena before moving to the Ice Box.

WFTDA competition

In 2010, No Coast hosted the WFTDA South Central Regional Tournament at the Pershing Center, billed as the "biggest roller derby weekend in Lincoln history". No Coast themselves competed, entering the weekend as the eight seed and finishing in fifth place.

No Coast hosted the South Central Regional Tournament again in 2012, also at the Pershing Center. At the 2012 event, 7th seed No Coast finished the weekend in 5th place with a victory over 4th-seeded Nashville Rollergirls.

No Coast has consistently qualified for WFTDA Playoffs every season since 2009.
