Maine's first women's flat-track roller derby league
Maine Roller Derby is Maine's first women's flat track roller derby league. The league began its formation in March 2006, and began practicing on skates in early June of the same year. The league is skater-owned and skater-operated, and currently houses approximately 30 members who practice three times a week. MRD follows the rules of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (www.wftda.org), and is one of nearly 200 leagues across the nation which have embraced the growing sport of roller derby as it is skated on a flat track, as opposed to the old days of banked-track competition.
MRD is actively recruiting new skaters, referees, and general volunteer staff.
