The Killamazoo Derby Darlins (KDD) is a roller derby league based in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Founded in 2006, the league consists of two teams which compete against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded in early 2006 as the Kalamazoo Kamikazes, and played its first bout the following year, but subsequently changed to its present name.[1] It doubled its membership in 2009, following the release of the movie Whip It!.[2]

Killamazoo was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in October 2009,[3] and became a full member of the WFTDA in September 2010.[4]

The league plays its bouts at the Wings Stadium, and aims in particular to attract families to watch.[5]
