Formed in 2006, the Dutchland Derby Rollers are a do-it-yourself flat track roller derby league, born as just an idea from a group of gals who love to don eight wheels and skate. We dedicate ourselves to athleticism and community involvement while delivering a strong, positive female image to South Central Pennsylvania.
Dutchland Rollers, Inc. is proud to announce it is now officially a public charity with tax-exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code. Contributions donated to Dutchland Rollers, Inc. are fully tax-deductible retroactive to January 1, 2015. This also means that Dutchland Rollers, Inc. is eligible for greater fundraising opportunities, which will further broaden the organization’s access to resources and strengthen its national amateur sports competition status, as well as within the local community.
We are the Dutchland Derby Rollers, proud members of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) and Lancaster Pennsylvania's amateur competitive women's roller derby league. Our home bouting venue is Overlook Activities Center, located in Manheim Township (a suburb of Lancaster City).
Our league is built on an “A - B - C team” model. The A team, the Dutchland All-Stars, is comprised of the league's most accomplished skaters who compete at a national and international level with other teams at WFTDA-sanctioned bouts. The Dutchland Blitz is a competitive B team comprised of All-Star alternates and other talented and experienced Dutchland skaters who compete for limited spots on the roster. The Orange Crush is a training team with a mixed roster of seasoned vets and many newer skaters still honing their skating skills and developing their game play.
The rosters for each team are fluid, as skaters are given the opportunity for movement between teams. This structure offers the opportunity for a high level of competition, both within the league (as skaters strive to advance to the All-Stars) and also in performance against a wide range of other roller derby teams. We try bring our best selves to every game and strive to keep Lancaster roller derby on the local, regional, national, and international map.
