Port Scandalous Roller Derby (PSRD) is a non-profit 501(c)(4) flat track roller derby league based in Port Angeles, Washington. The league is primarily skater run and consists of three teams: (1) a home team, Strait Shooters; (2) a traveling team, Intense City; and (3) a junior team, Roller Punks. Teams compete against other teams from leagues across Western Washington. The traveling and junior teams are currently inactive. PSRD's purpose is to provide a place for all women to participate in a full contact sport that encourages better health, stress relief, and camaraderie.
The league was founded in May 2010 by local women including Jessica Carvell, Serena Staples and Holly Botts. Initially known as the "Port Scandalous Derby Dolls", it changed its name due to trademark issues. Skaters from other local leagues helped train the new team, and by late 2011, it was bouting monthly, and was setting up a B team and junior roller derby league. League membership has declined in recent years and is currently rebuilding.
