The History of Louisville Roller Derby

Established as an LLC in 2005, the Louisville Roller Derby (originally Derby City Roller Girls) was owned and operated by locals who love to skate. LRD started as a small group of passionate people with like-minded determination and dreams of bringing the sport and art of roller derby to the Louisville community. In 2009, Louisville Roller Derby was honored to acquire status as an official member of WFTDA, the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association.​ LRD has continued to grow over the years as a league to better align with creating a safe space and the core values of inclusivity that are held by the group. In 2015, the move was made from an LLC to a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. This was followed by the most recent growth in 2022 with the Rebrand Launch, changing the league's name from Derby City Roller Girls to Louisville Roller Derby and revealing a new logo, retiring the previous pin up design to a sleek lightning bolt to pay homage to the original imagery of the league.
