Mission Statement

Since roller derby was revived by a group of entrepreneurial women in Austin, Texas, in 2001, the amateur sport has risen from an underground subculture to a pop culture phenomenon. The roller derby revolution has far exceeded anyone’s expectations and has been called "the fastest growing sport for women" (USA Today). No other league has grown faster, stronger and harder than the Bay Area Derby Girls.


The Bay Area Derby (BAD) Girls was one of the first women’s flat track roller derby leagues in California and was a founding member league for the official governing body for modern roller derby- Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). Since forming in 2004, BAD has steadily grown to become one of the top flat-track roller derby leagues in the world- the BAD All-Star team placed 3rd at WFDTA Championships in 2013 and is currently ranked #2 in the world.

Description

Driven by a passion for the sport and aided by a global network of like-minded men and women, BAD is a skater owned and operated 501 (c)(3) non-profit league with a commitment to helping other grassroots organizations in the Bay Area. BAD embodies the DIY, for-the-skaters/by-the-skaters ethos of modern women’s roller derby. Entirely volunteer-run, every member of BAD puts their heart, soul, sweat and tears into growing the league and giving back to the community that has supported them since 2004. The BAD Girls pursue a mission to provide amateur athletic entertainment and to skate competitively on a regional and national level.
