Who We Are
The Terminal City All-Stars are the Terminal City Rollergirls' Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) charter team, made up of some of the best roller derby athletes in Vancouver. The WFTDA is the international governing body for the sport of women’s flat track roller derby, a membership organization that sanctions local and international competitions of member leagues.
In our first season with the organization last year, the All-Stars made history in the WFTDA, making the biggest rankings jump ever recorded (seven spots!). We are currently ranked 38th in the world, and are the 2nd highest ranked Canadian team in the WFTDA. Our steady climb up the rankings has clearly proven our level of dedication and strength.
Because of this success, the All-Stars have been invited to compete at the 2013 WFTDA Division 1 tournament in Richmond, Virginia this September. We are excited and proud to be the very first Western Canadian team to be invited to the tournament!
