About Toronto Roller Derby League:
The Toronto Roller Derby League (ToRD) is the largest flat-track derby league in Canada, boasting six teams: The Gore-Gore Rollergirls, Chicks Ahoy!, Death Track Dolls, Smoke City Betties, CN Power (our all-star travel team) and The Deadly Viper Assassination Squad (our rookies in training). These women are thrilled to bring Toronto the finest full contact roller derby in Toronto. Now that ToRD has just been accepted into the Women’s Flat Tack Derby Association, CN Power is ready to tower over the world. Come experience history as Toronto hosts the first ever World Cup of Roller Derby on December 1-4, 2011.

 

The new wave of roller derby blends athleticism with entertainment to make the spiciest sport out there! ToRD’s mission: to represent roller derby as a booming, strategic, fast paced sport that is here to stay and leave the nostalgic choreographed sport of the 80s behind. Though you won’t see Skinny Mini Miller link arms with someone and bulldoze another skater over, you will see Mega Bouche flatten a blocker and Dust Bunny blaze a trail through the pack.

 

Proud to be an all-female operated organization, ToRD is run “for the skaters, by the skaters”. Each of these talented, ambitious and energetic women is passionate about their sport and committed to its success on a local, regional, and global scale. We represent a broad range of ages, body types, lifestyles and backgrounds, and are committed to being inclusive of all walks of life whether they sit in the stands or join us on the track. All of our bouts are wheelchair accessible, queer positive, kid friendly, and pack in hard hitting action you won’t see anywhere else!
