Maine Roller Derby (MRD) is Maine’s premier women’s flat track roller derby league. Our league is a proud member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) and has embraced the quickly-growing sport of roller derby as it is skated on a flat track.
Maine Roller Derby is a women run non-profit corporation. Our mission is to deliver a STRONG, positive, athletic image to the Southern Maine COMMUNITY and to be positive role models for girls and women. As a sponsor, your company will be featured alongside and affiliated with our GRASSROOTS, positive, athletic image.
This Maine Roller Derby 2015 season boast some exciting changes! MRD introduces Home Teams, which are made up entirely of Maine Roller Derby skaters who compete against each other at home rather than traveling or playing opponents from other leagues. Home Teams have allowed Maine Roller Derby to take a talented pool of skaters and provide more opportunities for them to compete in front of our local fans. In short, more roller derby! The 2015 Home Team season will feature the Calamity Janes and the R.I.P. Tides as equal adversaries. The team rosters have been set, the logos have been revitalized, and the atmosphere is going to be electric when these teams hit the track this season! Join us for what’s sure to be a historic year in Maine Roller Derby history.
The Port Authorities are MRD’s WFTDA (Women’s Flat Track Derby Association) ranked all-star travel team. Our travel team competes at home and away against other internationally-ranked all-star teams in the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association.

Roller Derby has become one of the fastest growing female-dominated sports in history. It is athletic, it is strong, it is derby.

We are family friendly and are involved in community charitable causes reaching many different demographics.
