Wasatch Roller Derby
Wasatch Roller Derby (WRD) is the premier flat track roller derby league in the Salt Lake area. They’ve been a part of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association since 2009, and since then they’ve risen consistently year-to-year in national rankings. WRD boasts two home teams-- The Black Diamond Divas and the Hot Wheelers. And they also have two travel teams-- Midnight Terror and Bonneville Bone Crushers. Additionally, the Wasatch Junior Rollers are a league designed for up-and-coming roller derby stars, from ages 8-17.
Beyond competition, the Wasatch Roller Derby League strives to provide an environment that encourages athleticism, self-discipline, and character for all its participants. Additionally, they work to make a difference in their community by raising money and awareness for an array of charities.
Happy Valley Derby Darlins
In 2011, a few determined skaters created the Happy Valley Derby Darlins (HVDD), in an effort to bring roller derby to Utah County. They’ve since become a member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, featuring a travel team: The Molly Morbids, as well as 3 home teams: Daughters of Anarchy, Rollin’ Rebellion, and Sirens of Steel. They also have a youth team for girls under 18 called the Happy Valley Derby Prodigies.
Located in Lindon, The Happy Valley Derby Darlins are centrally located for those living in the Utah Valley. They invite men, women and children of all ages and experience to come out and enjoy the fun. The HVDD provides an environment of sisterhood, sportsmanship, and a sense of family throughout the organization as a whole.
