Steel City Roller Derby (SCRD) is a skater owned and operated organization. We are Pittsburgh's only all-female roller derby league, comprised of strong and independent women from the nation's home of superb sports teams. The members of Steel City Roller Derby are taking all the action and exhilaration of yesterday's roller derby and combining it with punk rock flavor, resulting in maximum entertainment! With flat track roller derby leagues growing from 30 just a few years ago to over 400 worldwide today, this new incarnation of an old sport is growing by leaps and bounds!
SCRD has two travel teams: The Steel Hurtin is the A-Team, or Varsity team, and there is also a B-team/Junior Varsity team (name TBD). They play teams from other cities that are on similar skater skill levels. There are three newly formed home teams that play each other during the travel teams' off season: Allegheny Avengers, Mon Monsters, and Penn Bruisers.
If you are an old fan of ours, perhaps you might remember our four home teams: The Bitch Doctors, the Hot Metal Hellions, The Slumber Party Slashers, and the Wrecking Dolls. In 2009 these teams were dissolved officially in order for the SCDD to focus on inter-league play against other cities, secondary to our league's growing talents and ability to dazzle roller derby fans on the national stage. Many other roller derby leagues around the nation have done the same, in response to the sport's growing popularity and visibility nationwide.
The Steel City Derby Demons are proud members of the Womens Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). Founded in 2004, the WFTDA promotes and fosters the sport of womens flat track derby by facilitating the development of athletic ability, sportswomanship, and goodwill among member leagues. The governing philosophy is by the skaters, for the skaters. Female skaters are primary owners, managers, and operators of each member league and of the association. Operational tasks include setting standards for rules, seasons, and safety, and determining guidelines for the national and international athletic competitions of member leagues. All member leagues have a voice in the decision making process, and agree to comply with the governing body's policies.
