We are proud to welcome DC Rollergirls as a sponsor for this event. The DC Rollergirls are proud members of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (www.wftda.org
), the national governing body for women’s amateur flat track roller derby. WFTDA is comprised of skater-owned and operated leagues nationwide that have united to lead this growing sport.
The non-profit league is run entirely by the skaters, who contribute their free time and talents to manage the business side of the league everything from organizing fundraising events to designing promotional materials. The DC Rollergirls also maintain a strong sense of pride in the community by partnering with local charities and participating in local events. The leagues vision is to promote athleticism, diversity and roller derby, and foster self-worth, personal strength, and female empowerment.
Currently the league is composed of four competitive home teams; DC Demon Cats, Scare Force One, Cherry Blossom Bombshells, and Majority Whips. These teams practice several times a week in order to compete against each other for the season’s championship. The league is also composed of a DC All-Star Team which competes against other National leagues in WFTDA sanctioned bouts, the ultimate prize being the WFTDA championship trophy, the Hydra.
You can see them compete at their next scheduled bout at the Dulles Sports Plex on November 17th and then again at the DC Armory on December 8th. Make sure you stop by and check out their booth during the Mid Atlantic MEGA MEET and you can also visit them on the Web at dcrollergirls.com
