The sport of roller derby has existed in one variation or another for over a hundred years, and it has been enjoying a resurgence over the last decade that is empowering athletes of all genders and abilities. Flat track roller derby is a full contact team sport that requires endurance, strength, agility, strategy, and tenacity. During a game governed by the current rules, five skaters from two teams skate counter-clockwise on an oval track for up to two minutes, earning points as their designated scoring player laps members of the opposing team. These two-minute segments are repeated throughout the game to fill two thirty-minute halves. Flat track roller derby, the type played by MRD, evolved from banked-track roller derby in 2001 and has quickly grown to encompass hundreds of leagues worldwide.
The league is governed by an all-female Board of Directors. Throughout its 10-year history, this all-volunteer organization has fostered the professional, personal, and athletic skill development of its league members by maintaining a competitive athletic program, promoting the sport of roller derby, and making a positive impact in our community. As the state’s oldest and largest roller derby league, MRD is an important leader among other leagues in the state and in the region. Read more about us here.
