Atlanta Rollergirls are bringing back the whole nation of roller derby lady badasses to this year's WFTDA (Women's Flat Track Derby Association) National Finals for a 3 day event, November 2 - 4 at the Georgia World Congress Center.
History of WFTDA:
The WFTDA began as the United Leagues Coalition (ULC) in 2004, consisting of a handful of flat track roller derby leagues, each owned and operated by skaters sharing the singular, driving compulsion to re-imagine roller derby as a modern sport.
In 2005, 30 flat track roller derby leagues were represented at the historic first meeting of the ULC, with the goal of developing the guiding principles and aspirations of the organization. Following that meeting, the ULC voted to change its name to the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) to reflect the organization’s goals.
The WFTDA opened its doors to new members in September 2006 and has since welcomed dozens of new member leagues into the association.
With team names like The Denim Demons,The Toxic Shocks and The Dirty South Derby Girls, you are bound to be in for some serious entertainment! Knee pads NOT included.
