WFTDA Statement on Skater Suspension: Atomatrix

April 16, 2012

The skater Atomatrix, formerly with the Oly Rollers and now with Arizona Roller Derby, received a one-game suspension for violating the WFTDA Code of Conduct.

The WFTDA Compliance Panel issued this decision as a result of a grievance filed following the 2011 WFTDA Championships.

As was reported in roller derby media outlets, Atomatrix served her suspension during her team’s first game of the Dust Devil tournament, April 13.

The WFTDA is discussing a standardized method for publicly announcing skater suspensions in the future.

Real. Strong. Athletic. Revolutionary.
