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.

For many people, a sense of nostalgia is evoked with images of a WWF-esque, theatrical sport from the 1970s. Forothers, it’s visions of burly, tattooed, and dyed women in fishnets and knee socks gunning for each other. For me, and for many other people intimately connected to roller derby, it evokes a sense of camaraderie, sportsmanship, responsibility, and time commitment. And I mustn’t forget tons of fun!
