Our mission is to operate as a financially sustainable all-female flat track roller derby league that fosters the development of the whole skater: sportswomenship, physical ability, the forming of a sister hood, and emotionally.
Sportswomanship is integrated throughout the League. We encourage skaters to value the uniqueness and dignity of each person and to understand the league’s moral and social obligations to our community.
We are not afraid of brutal competition. We create a safe environment for contact sport, promote an active lifestyle for women, encourage alternative sporting options for women, and are dedicated to putting on a good show.
Tahoe Derby Dames gives each skater a chance to advance at their own rate while instilling a lifelong love for the sport of Roller Derby. Our ultimate goal is to be stronger, faster, better. So roll with us on our journey to bumps, bruises, and glory all for entertainment and charity.
The Tahoe Derby Dames are an all-female amateur flat track roller derby league that was established in 2008. Representing a wide variety of backgrounds and professions, the Tahoe Derby Dames strive to serve as positive role models for young girls in the community while introducing Lake Tahoe to a new, up & coming, family friendly sport.
We are skater owned and operated, and no skater is reimbursed for her time. In addition to working hard for our league, we also take an active role in our community, donating our time, energy and money to local non-profit and community organizations.
The Tahoe Derby Dames play by standardized rules set forth by the Womens Flat Track Derby Association (WTFDA).
