The Dockyard Derby Dames (DyDD) is a roller derby league based in Tacoma, Washington. Founded in 2005, the league currently consists of four teams, and a mixed team which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league played its first public bout in May 2007.[1] By late 2009, it had around 60 skaters.[2] It has rented practice space at the Tacoma Armory.[3]

The league was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in January 2010,[4] and became a full member of the WFTDA in December.[5]
