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!
