At Roller Derby Athletics, it’s our mission to empower every roller derby athlete to be safe, strong, and unstoppable. We want to help every skater achieve their goals.
Hey, we’re Ratchet-Face & Taco Bruiseday & we’re so excited to join the RDA team. We’ve had a love of derby for over 5 years and channeled that love into Bout Betties. After 3 years of that we decided to take on the challenge of grabbing the laces of RDA. We’re super stoked 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. We’re stoked to have 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!
