Port Scandalous Roller Derby (PSRD) is a women's flat track flat track roller derby league based in Port Angeles, Washington. The league is primarily skater run and consists of three teams: a home team, Strait Shooters; a traveling team, Intense City; and a junior team, Roller Punks. Teams compete against other teams from leagues across Western Washington. The traveling and junior teams are currently inactive.[1] Port Scandalous is a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).[2]

History[edit]

The league was founded in May 2010 by local women including Jessica Carvell, Serena Staples and Holly Botts.[3] Initially known as the "Port Scandalous Derby Dolls", it changed its name due to trademark issues.[4] 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.[3] League membership has declined in recent years and is currently rebuilding.

Port Scandalous was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in October 2012,[5] and it became a full WFTDA member in September 2013.[6]

Port Scandalous is a non-profit organization.[7]
