Undead Bettys Accepted as Women’s Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice
Antioch, California- The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) is proud to announce today that Undead Bettys has been accepted as an “Apprentice” affiliate of the WFTDA, the governing body for women’s amateur flat track roller derby.
“This is a historic moment for Undead Bettys and the result of many years of hard work by our members. We are ready to begin the journey towards membership and continue to promote and contribute to the growth of roller derby” said EvilEye Cherry, President Undead Bettys
As an Apprentice affiliate of the WFTDA, Undead Bettys joins the ranks of more than 300 all-female, skater-owned-and-operated leagues worldwide that have united to lead the growing sport of women’s flat track roller derby.
WFTDA apprentice leagues are matched with veteran member leagues who guide them in the processes and requirements necessary to become a full member of the Association. WFTDA Apprentice leagues are considered “pre-members” of the WFTDA and have access to many of the resources and benefits of full WFTDA membership.
