Why We Skate

Not only do Dutchland skaters pride themselves on becoming the best women of flat-track roller derby we can be, but we care deeply about our community at large. Each home bout, we give a portion of tickets sales to an organization near and dear to all of us.

With over ten years of charity service under our belts, to date we've donated over $29,000 to worthwhile causes!
