Not Your Mama's Roller Derby!
In 2003 a group of Austin, TX ladies made history. Forming the only league of its kind, flat-track roller derby was born with the Texas Rollergirls. Today over 400 leagues exist worldwide with more popping up all the time. Gone are the choreographed hits and staged theatrics of the '70s roller derby your parents grew up with. Flat-track roller derby is a hard hitting, competitive sport taking the world by storm. The blood, sweat and bruises are real and we're like nothing you've ever seen!
Roller Derby Hits the Tri-State!
DCRD has grown to over 50 active skaters with solid ref and stats crews as long as dozens of dedicated volunteers. DCRD is comprised of two interleague travel teams who compete with other leagues from around the Midwest and beyond: our All-Star Dynamite Dolls, and our B team Destruction Dames.
