Welcome to Derby Central.
It may have some similarities to derby media you’ve seen before, but it’s also a little different. We were founded by a team of female and genderqueer writers (but are looking for anyone and everyone to contribute!). We’re made up of skaters and officials who are part of key WFTDA leagues (Rose, Windy and Angel City, just to name a few).
Our team is experienced in writing for roller derby, and this site seeks to marry the sports reporting we find so familiar with features, interviews, opinion columns and more. We’re planning for it to be a hub of news, previews, recaps, interviews and features about roller derby, with a focus on flat track.
We are starting small – this basic website with no ads and a tight team of contributors – but are planning on becoming a non-profit organization. We want to service our roller derby community by being accountable to the people who make it.
Join us as we begin this journey.
