We are a league of athletes on wheels that brought roller derby back to Philadelphia, PA. Our league is comprised of over 80 skaters, dozens of officials and volunteers, as well as countless fans and supporters. PRD is comprised of three competitive adult travel teams, two competitive junior travel teams, and three competitive home teams—ready to take on any five, any time.

Philly Roller Derby (PRD) is a skater-owned and operated roller derby league and we are a proud member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). Established in 2005, Philly Roller Derby’s mission is simple: to promote health, athleticism, and leadership skills in people of all ages through roller derby training and competition. Working within the organization provides our members with varied opportunities to develop leadership skills and self-esteem, which positively impacts our skaters both on and off the track. PRD strives to develop relationships with other nonprofit organizations and charities and to support groups within the great city of Philadelphia and beyond.
