There are now 52 women’s flat track roller derby leagues enjoying the benefits of WFTDA Apprenticeship. Designed to act as a “WFTDA 101” tutorial, the Apprentice Program matches new leagues with an established WFTDA mentor, who guides her apprentice through the processes and requirements necessary to becoming a full member. The mentor will also offer advice and encouragement about league-specific issues – everything from league formation to how to become ranked and qualify for WFTDA sponsored tournaments. Upon completion of the program, apprentice leagues have the knowledge needed to apply for full WFTDA membership. The first 11 leagues to complete the Apprentice Program became full WFTDA members in June.

Real. Strong. Athletic. Revolutionary.
