Roller derby is a competitive sport played on quad roller skates which combines the speed and agility of speed skating and the physicality of hockey. The 301 Derby Dames is a non-profit women's league in the Southern Maryland/ Northern Virigina area and plays by the WFTDA ruleset.
Check out the Women's Flat Track Roller Derby Association (WFTDA). They are the governing body for women's flat track roller derby.
The 301 Derby Dames are local athletes who are Southern Maryland proud! This league believes in the city and its citizens. No matter the level of skating ability, each skater and staff member works together to ensure that every member becomes the best skater possible as well as a valuable asset in representing the City of La Plata.
We are a group of dedicated, empowered women who want to be competitive at the sport of roller derby. We're always looking for new skaters, referees, non-skating officials, and volunteers to help our league succeed! Click on the recruitment page for more information!

Are you a freshie looking for more time on your skates? The 301 Derby Dames are hosting an open black and white scrimmage for all assessed skaters who have played in 3 or less bouts! Cost is $5 per skater, payable at the door. You'll have access to the venue (Charles County Fairgrounds) at 7:30pm to sign a liability waiver and warm up. Our floor is made of brushed concrete, but don't let that scare you! Spectators are welcome free of charge if they bring a non-perishable food item for donation to the Southern Maryland Food Bank.
Join us for the fourth year in a row as we participate in the Town of La Plata Bed Races as part of the Celebrate La Plata Event!
In previous years we've decorated our bed as a giant roller skate, we've proudly displayed our logo, and we've paid tribute to our referees with a zebra bed. What will we come up with this year? You'll have to join the crowd to find out. Race will kick off at 3 pm on April 29th, 2017.
