Founded in 2006, DC Rollergirls is a 501(c)(3) volunteer-run non-profit. We are proud members of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, the international governing body for women’s amateur flat track roller derby. WFTDA is composed of skater-owned and -operated leagues worldwide that have united to lead this growing sport.
Our non-profit league is run by skaters and dedicated volunteers, 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 our community by partnering with local charities and participating in local events. Our league’s vision is to promote athleticism, diversity and roller derby, and foster self-worth, personal strength and female empowerment.
The women who make up the league come from all walks of life — they are engineers, architects, lawyers, teachers, nurses, writers, artists, librarians and work-at-home moms. They came to this sport as novice and experienced skaters, as seasoned athletes and as former couch potatoes. But they all have one thing in common — they are strong, fierce, competitive athletes who are passionate about roller derby.
