The Auld Reekie Roller Girls are proud to announce we have graduated to full membership in the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, the US-based governing body of world roller derby.
WFTDA is the governing body of flat track derby worldwide, and membership means ARRG can have a say in the collective future of the sport, as well as participate in official rankings and statistics. We’re very excited!!
Currently the only other member league in Europe is the London Roller Girls, but the movement is spreading fast – four UK leagues (including the Glasgow Roller Girls) were accepted into the association’s apprenticeship programme in July 2011, taking their first steps on the road to full member league status.
Between WFTDA membership and our skaters’ participation in Team Scotland for the upcoming Roller Derby World Cup, ARRG is rolling onto the world stage in a big way. It’s an exciting time for Scottish derby!
