Our story

Hey, we’re Ratchet-Face & Taco Bruiseday & we’re so excited to be leading the RDA Team. We’ve had a love of derby for over 6 years and channeled that love into Bout Betties. We then decided to grab the laces of RDA, to continue providing a much needed service for the skating community. We’re super fired up to channel our derby love into sharing our fitness journeys with all of you. 

We understand the struggle of fitting in cross training into our busy schedules & knew that RDA was the perfect option. It’s awesome having the opportunity to connect with you all in the Derbyverse through our fitness challenges and in the Roller Derby Athletics app. Thank you so much for following RDA’s growth and sticking with us!  

Why Roller Derby Athletics?

We take the mystery out of cross-training, giving skaters the tools and inspiration to transform their game, without a lot of equipment or time.

We provide sport-specific training programs and resources to help skaters around the world achieve their best.

In doing so, we abide by these core values. Without exception, RDA is:

  • Safe: Injury prevention is the first priority of all Roller Derby Athletics training programs.
  • Inclusive: we focus on outcomes and abilities, not appearance. Every athlete’s sweat counts equally, whether you’ve never exercised before, or you’re a total gym rat.
  • Authentic: our coaches are real people, and derby athletes like you. We don’t expect perfection; we request your best effort. We won’t suggest you buy a program if it’s not what you really need.
  • Challenging: We’ll kick your ass, and you’ll thank us for it!
