Fort Wayne, IN
Fort Wayne Derby Girls are Fort Wayne's only and Indiana's first all-female, flat track roller derby league. With the resurgence of roller derby across the country, our goal was to create Indiana's first all-female roller derby league and we were Co-founded in October 2005. We have since grown from 5 skaters to around 40 skaters along with many dedicated volunteers that make our league well over 100 people.
In 2009 we took a leap of faith and dissolved our home teams to create only travel teams to play other leagues. We created the SWAT team which is the feeder league into our chartered nationally ranked all-star team, The Bomb Squad. In 2011 we created a team for our newest members called The Academy.
The Fort Wayne Derby Girls encourages community involvement from all socio-economic groups in Fort Wayne and its surrounding communities. The league embodies the strength, courage, and vitality of Fort Wayne women but also serves to provide another form of semi-professional athletic entertainment to the Summit City. Fort Wayne Derby Girls encourages its members to contribute to the community through both volunteering and monetary contributions to Fort Wayne charities. To date we have given over $110,000.00 to local women’s and children’s charities.
