SoCal Derby is a flat track roller derby league located in San Diego, California. The league boasts one team, the Kraken.

History[edit]

The league was founded in 2011 by Ivanna S. Pankin and Trish The Dish.

"#1 Armed Bandit", a skater with SoCal, was selected to play for Team Scotland at the 2011 Roller Derby World Cup.[1][2]

SoCal Derby was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in January 2012,[3] and graduated to Women's Flat Track Derby full membership in December 2013.[4] Their charter team, the Kraken, rose from unranked in their first full membership season to rank #38 and achieve an invitation to the WFTDA Division One Playoffs in 2014.[5]

In 2014, SoCal Derby partnered with South Coast Derby. The two small leagues provisionally merged business operations, leadership boards and practice calendars, but ultimately disconnected in 2015.

After a year long game hiatus, SoCal Derby announced a partnership in December 2015 with local RDCL (Roller Derby Coalition of Leagues) banked track league, San Diego Derby Dolls to share a facility and create the first coalition between a banked and flat track league under one roof in modern roller derby.[6]
