The DC Rollergirls are the only flat track roller derby league in Washington, D.C. Historically, D.C. was home to the Washington, D.C. Jets, which played banked track derby until 1978.[1] Roller derby has grown in popularity since 2003, largely due to the creation of the WFTDA.

The DC Rollergirls play most of their bouts at the DC Armory and Dulles SportsPlex; however, the league recently signed a lease on a warehouse located in Edmonston, Md. The warehouse will serve as a practice facility during Season 10 but may host bouts during future seasons.[2]

Teams[edit]

As of the 2014-2015 season, the league consists of four local teams:[3]

Upon creation in 2006, the league consisted of the Cherry Blossom Bombshells, DC DemonCats, Scare Force One, and the now-defunct Secretaries of Hate. The Majority Whips was formed in 2011.[4]
