Welcome to the official website for the United States Roller Derby National Teams! Our teams represent the country in international competitions affiliated to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the Federation of International Roller Sports (FIRS) and the United States Olympic Committee (USOC).
Back in August of 2015, during the USA Roller Sports National Championship in Philadelphia, we started the process of identifying and selecting athletes for the Women’s National Team. That process continued with additional tryout events in January and February of 2016, concluding with the final tryout session on April 16 and 17. Here is the historic first roster of the Women’s Team USA Roller Derby team.
The Men’s National Team completed the identification and selection process in May 2016, starting with four tryout sessions and ending with a final tryout in Florida on January 8, 2017. We are pleased to present the first roster of the Men’s Team USA Roller Derby team.
Ultimately, the selected athletes from the Women’s Team brought home the gold representing the United States at the World Roller Games, a spectacular event gathering for the first time in one city the world championships of ten roller disciplines: artistic, speed, rink hockey, inline hockey, roller freestyle, skateboarding, inline freestyle, inline downhill, roller derby and inline alpine. The event, organized by FIRS, was hosted by the city of Nanjing, China during the summer of 2017.
Unfortunately, the Men’s Team USA members did not have an opportunity to compete in China because the tournament was limited to female competition, but we look forward to seeing Team USA compete on both Men’s and Women’s competitions in the upcoming years.
