The Women's Flat Track Derby Association Division 2 (WFTDA Division 2) is the second-highest level of play in women's flat track roller derby.

Organisation[edit]

The division consists of the members of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association ranked from 41 to 100. The rankings are set at the start of each year, based on performance over the previous year. Although rankings are updated during the year, teams will only transfer between divisions at the start of each year.

Historically, the WFTDA instead operated four regions: East, North Central, South Central and West. At the start of 2013, these were redivided into three divisions, each operating worldwide. However, foreseeing continued growth in membership, the WFTDA stated that future developments were likely to include new regional structures alongside the divisional system.[1]

Teams in Division 2 play in bouts through the year, aiming to qualify for one of the end-of-year playoff tournaments. Any Division 2 teams which are ranked in the WFTDA's top forty at the end of June each year qualify for the WFTDA Division 1 Playoffs. Those ranked between 41 and 60 qualify for one of the two Division 2 Playoffs. Teams which do not play a minimum number of sanctioned bouts are not permitted to compete at the Playoffs.[1]
