We are Kingston Roller Derby
Back in the fall of 2009, three fresh-faced girls (OK, three thirty-something mothers to eight young children between them) set out to join a roller derby league in Kingston. Much to their chagrin, no such group existed.
Not easily deterred, this plucky (and perhaps naïve) triumvirate set out to bring derby to Kingston, hoping for 15 to 20 skaters to join them to share the cost of renting a rink once or twice a week. Within three hours of registration, 66 brave women had signed up to become the inaugural members of the Kingston Derby Girls, Kingston’s first roller derby league, and sports and recreation haven’t been the same in this town since.
We are WFTDA
The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association is the international governing body for the sport of women’s flat track roller derby and a membership organization for leagues to collaborate and network. The WFTDA sets standards for rules, seasons, and safety, and determines guidelines for the national and international athletic competitions of member leagues.
