Harrisburg Area Roller Derby (HARD) is a roller derby league based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Founded in 2005, it has two teams, which compete against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded by a group of women in January 2005.[1] By early 2007, it had played three bouts, and was attracting crowds of several hundred people.[2]

The league joined the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) in May 2008.[3] It qualified for the 2009 WFTDA Eastern Regional Tournament, but was unable to field a team.[4] By 2010, it had grown to more than forty skaters.[5]
