Desert Dolls Roller Derby adopts USARS rule set
Desert Dolls Roller Derby is the first Arizona league to skate under USARS rule set
Phoenix, Arizona – Desert Dolls Roller Derby (DDRD), established in 2009, is the premier competitive women’s flat track roller derby league in Phoenix, Arizona. In preparation for a momentous 5th Season, the league has decided to adopt the USA Roller Sports (USARS) rule set.
USARS is the national governing body of competitive roller sports (inline & roller skating) in the United States, and is recognized by the International Roller Sports Federation (FIRS) & the United States Olympic Committee.
Roller derby continues to be one of the most rapidly growing sports in the world. Players find that the sport is both fun and challenging, and Desert Dolls Roller Derby attracts athletes of various size, age and skill level.
For the past four seasons, DDRD has trained and competed under a rule set developed by the league directors and team captains. Desert Dolls Roller Derby has grown its local membership and fan support exponentially since its inception in 2009, and the league is now poised to become the first in Arizona to skate under the USARS rule set. DDRD believes that the use of the USARS rule set will position the league to compete on a national and international scale.
DDRD looks forward to working with other national leagues using the USARS rule set to help shape the future of roller derby. Evol Starr and RueBea Rockett, Directors of Desert Dolls Roller Derby, are excited for the change. “We believe this to be the best option to move our league forward and continue to provide roller derby as an outlet to so many women and girls. The possibilities are endless.“
Desert Dolls Roller Derby will begin their 5th season in October. The season schedule will be available online or via Facebook in the coming weeks.
