Gotham Girls Roller Derby – Mission
Gotham Girls Roller Derby Logo Founded in 2003, and first bouting in 2004, Gotham Girls Roller Derby is New York City’s only all-female, do-it-yourself (DIY), skater-operated roller derby league. The league is comprised of strong, diverse, and independent women from the world’s biggest, baddest city.
As a 501c3 non-profit organization, GGRD is committed to fostering serious competition on a national and international level, developing amateur athletes for competition, and promoting the physical and mental strength and independent spirit of amateur female athletes.
The skaters work tirelessly – both on the track and off – to represent the greatest city in the world at home and on the road, competing at the highest levels of gameplay through the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association.
Gotham Girls Roller Derby – Composition
The league is made up of four home teams which play within the league (the Bronx Gridlock, Brooklyn Bombshells, Manhattan Mayhem, and Queens of Pain). At times these teams compete with member teams from other WFTDA leagues.
The league is also home to three inter-league competition teams: the Gotham Girls All-Stars, the Wall Street Traitors and the Grand Central Terminators. These teams are compiled of league skaters from all four home teams and compete against other leagues. The Gotham Girls All-Stars represent the league in sanctioned WFTDA inter-league competitions that count towards WFTDA national rankings.
The league’s draft and development pool is the Diamond District, which also occasionally competes in matchups against regional foes.
