The Oklahoma Victory Dolls (OVD) is a women's flat track roller derby league based in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Founded in 2007, the league currently consists of two inter-league teams which compete against teams from other leagues. They formerly had four home teams that competed against each other.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the Victory Dolls donate a portion of their profits to local charities[1] and have also organized fundraisers for injured skaters.[2] They have participated in local events, such as Mardi Gras.[3]

In January 2017, the league announced it was merging with Oklahoma City Roller Derby and the new organization would continue under the Oklahoma Victory Dolls name.[4]

WFTDA competition[edit]

The Oklahoma Victory Dolls were the youngest league to be accepted as full members of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA)[5] at the time of their induction in September 2008.[6] They were a part of the South Central Region[7] of the WFTDA from 2008 to 2012. When the WFTDA changed to a Divisions-based ranking system in 2013, the Oklahoma Victory Dolls debuted in Division 2, ranked at 55.[8] Later that year, Oklahoma first qualified for WFTDA Playoffs, entering the Division 1 tournament in Asheville, North Carolina as the ninth seed, and taking seventh place with a 200-131 victory over the Nashville Rollergirls.[9] As the eighth seed in Salt Lake City in 2014, Oklahoma finished in tenth place with an overtime loss to Tri-City Roller Derby, 190-185.[10] In 2015, Oklahoma City dropped into Division 2 Playoffs in Cleveland as the ninth seed and came out in eighth place after a 179-137 loss to Jet City Rollergirls of Everett, Washington.[11]
