The WFTDA has revolutionized the way sports entities are run by adopting a volunteer-based model and offering women, women-identifying, and gender expansive community members the opportunity to lead within sports in ways they have not had access to before.

The growth we have achieved in a short amount of time is encouraging, and due in no small part to the hard work and leadership of the organization’s founders, its staff, key volunteers and officers, membership, and the Board of Directors.

The next three years are critical in the development of both the sport of roller derby and the WFTDA. As we grow, the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association is committed to building equitable practices and increasing engaged participation for all members of our community.

We will not tolerate discrimination, harassment, or bullying, and we reject bias, bigotry, and hatred against community members on the basis of physical ability, color, gender identification, religion, class, and/or indigenous culture.

Our Strategic Plan will allow us to help build structures that will ensure the rights of all skaters, volunteers, and employees are respected and protected, and we require the same dedication from our WFTDA members and community.

As a dynamic and exciting contact sport, our goal is also to improve safety expectations for our athletes and community members, to ensure that roller derby has a long and prosperous future in sport worldwide.
