The Hydra Trophy is a trophy awarded to the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) team that wins the WFTDA Championship Tournament at the conclusion of every WFTDA season.[1]

Named in honor of Hydra, founding member of WFTDA and first President of the association, the Hydra Trophy was first presented to the 2008 champions at the Northwest Knockdown in Portland, Oregon.[2]


The project of Hydra Trophy is to generate more recognition and an iconic status for the roller derby, like Stanley Cup (NHL), or the Larry O'Brien Trophy (NBA).


The winning team of the WFTDA Championship Tournament receives the Hydra Trophy. The Gotham Girls Roller Derby were the first winner of the trophy.
