The Amsterdam Derby Dames are a group of strong and versatile adult women. We come together, from all walks of life and in all shapes, sizes, and colours, to play Flat Track Roller Derby, a spectacular full-contact sport played on quad roller skates.
In order to play this sport, we have founded an independent league with a professional organizational structure. We are passionate about roller derby and work constructively towards our future goals, both within our own league as well as with other (inter)national leagues.
Along with the sport, volunteer and charity work are a central part of what we do. We care deeply about the world we live in, whether it’s regarding the environment, human rights or animal well-being, locally or internationally.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never skated before.
It doesn’t matter what size you are.
It doesn’t matter what shape you’re in.
Whether you’re a housewife or a lawyer.
It doesn’t matter what kind of music you’re into.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve got hairy legs (Well…we could discuss that…)
Everyone has a place with the Amsterdam Derby Dames. That’s just who we are.
