The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (wftda.com) is a national sports organization created and managed by all-female flat track roller derby leagues. Founded in 2004 to help the country’s first leagues connect with each other on and off the track, WFTDA has become the nucleus of roller derby evolution. By standardizing rules and regulating interleague play, the organization fosters the continued growth of the sport and provides leagues with support and guidance. WFTDA maintains league rankings and organizes annual tournaments for the most skilled teams.
