Our Mission: To foster important life skills in girls, through participation in roller derby as skaters and decision makers.

Why: Participation in roller derby helps girls develop confidence, leadership, and organizational skills with lifelong benefits for skaters and their communities.

How: We help girls keep playing by funding awareness of and access to roller derby: an inclusive, alternative sport with a positive culture of participation, fun, and empowerment for girls and women.
