The Arizona Derby Dames has been one of the world's largest and fastest growing all-girl roller derby leagues for 11 full seasons. With six teams, a roster of over one hundred women, and the Arizona Derby Dames have long been a leading force in the modern international roller derby movement.
Banked track roller derby delivers fans higher speeds, more daring moves, more dangerous action and faster paced games. Fans of all ages attend Arizona Derby Dames events. Multiple generations come to cheer on their favorite teams: The Schoolyard Scrappers, The Runaway Brides, The Bombshells, The Brutal Beauties, The Coffin Draggers, and the Doomsday Valkyries. Kids love the team themes and grandparents love the action they remember from seeing banked track roller derby on television back in the 70's.
For families, singles, students and couples, it's an exciting and different type of night out and more affordable than a night out at a concert or professional sports event or even a family night at the movies. And with double-header games all season long, there's a lot of entertainment for the ticket price.
It's important to the Arizona Derby Dames that they support the community that supports them. Efforts of the women in the league have benefited St. Vincent DePaul's food bank, the Arizona Coalition for Domestic Violence, the Salvation Army Adopt-A-Family Christmas program, the National Cancer Society's Relay for Life, the Second Harvest Food Bank, the ANASAZI Foundation, The Manna House, The Boys & Girls Club of Metropolitan Phoenix and the national Keep-A-Breast organization which benefits breast cancer research and many other charitable organizations.
