It is the mission of Madison Roller Derby, Inc. to provide a safe, inclusionary space to foster the development of a competitive women’s flat track roller derby athletic program, build leadership skills through volunteer opportunities, and make a positive impact in our community by serving as role models for our peers and future generations.
Madison Roller Derby, Madison’s premier roller derby league, first laced up its skates for the public in late 2004 and began its first full season in 2005. Since then, the dynamic skaters and dedicated volunteers have been providing a sport that not only features pure athleticism but a punch of serious fun for its many fans. MRD is a grassroots effort run by an all-volunteer group of skaters and non-skaters. These derby enthusiasts are behind everything from practices and bouts to merchandise and community involvement.
MRD is considered a "grandmother" league within the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, having been one of the first five leagues formed when the modern version of the sport and the WFTDA first formed. As of 2016 we are officially a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, with a focus not only on producing high quality sporting events but also on charitable and community outreach, as well as educational opportunities for our league members.
