The DC Rollergirls are a women’s non-profit roller derby league that brings its hard-hitting, rough and tumble skate action to Washington DC from September to May each year. A volunteer-run organization founded in 2006, the DC Rollergirls are the premier women's flat track roller derby league in the national capital region. The league consists of four home teams (Cherry Blossom Bombshells, DC DemonCats, Majority Whips, Scare Force One), and two travel teams (The DC All-Stars and our B-Team, The Capitol Offenders). The home teams compete against each other at the DC Armory, while the All-Stars battle for WFTDA international rankings across the country.
What is Flat Track Roller Derby?Flat track roller derby is a fast-paced contact team sport that requires speed, strategy, and athleticism. Each team fields up to five skaters per two-minute playing segment, called a “jam.” Blockers play both offensive and defensive roles in a defined “pack” on the oval track. Jammers score points for their team by lapping opposing players. Skaters may be penalized for committing foul. Teams skate short while they have one or more players serving a penalty. The flat track roller derby has grown rapidly since 2000 as the ability to mark track boundaries on a skating rink floor or other venues, rather than building and storing a large banked track, made it possible to play the game just about anywhere.
