"In just a few short years, the Derby Dolls have become an L.A. institution, and I want to make sure it stays that way. I hope we all do what we can to make sure the Derby Dolls can successfully move and keep entertaining, inspiring, training and wrecking," said Mayor Eric Garcetti.


HELP THE LA DERBY DOLLS MOVE!

We promise you'll get more than just pizza, beer and our undying gratitude.

THE WRECKING BALL IS ON ITS WAY!  

After 6 1/2 crazy wonderful years in Historic Filipinotown, the LA Derby Dolls must find new digs. We’ve done this before and, with your help, we’ll do it again! Each of our previous moves has made us stronger. We’ve attracted more fans, more skaters, more press, more friends and helped build a more vibrant local community everywhere we’ve been.

WHO ARE THE LA DERBY DOLLS?

Women and men of all professions and walks of life who have come together to form Southern California's premiere all-female, banked track roller derby league. Founded in April 2003, the league has more than 150 adult skaters, 130 junior skaters (ages 7 to 17), and hundreds of volunteers and support staff.

SHOULD I BE IMPRESSED?

Yes!

For the last ten years we’ve played an important part in America’s roller derby renaissance, while providing a needed community space where people from all neighborhoods can join together to participate in a unique experience to Los Angeles. We also provide an opportunity for girls and women of all ages to learn new skills on and off the track, through their volunteer efforts which run our events and community service work.

Did you know?  The LA Derby Dolls Ri-Ettes and Junior Ri-Ettes currently hold the first place title for US banked track roller derby in the adult and junior classes respectively!

SO, WHAT’S YOUR DEAL?

The Derby Dolls are committed to achieving the highest level of competition, integrity, and fan experience while enriching the lives of our members and community through sport. We will keep breaking through walls to make sure this tradition continues to our new venue.

JOIN US ON OUR NEW ADVENTURE!

The Derby Dolls have always been urban pioneers setting out for uncharted LA neighborhoods - putting down stakes, strapping on skates, and helping to revitalize entire zip codes. We know our job is done when the landlord wants to demolish our arena and put up condos. So, while we are sad to be leaving behind 6 years of blood, sweat, tears and about 5 layers of pink paint, we’ll be taking with us 6 years of wonderful memories along… and a dozen truckloads of crap hiding under our bleachers, to make it happen again!

WHAT’S THE MONEY FOR?

Every penny raised will go towards: a deposit on the new space, realtor fees, truck rentals, permitting costs at the new location, repairs on the new space, the installation of bleachers, our amazing banked track, sound system, lighting equipment, and other costs acquired from moving our sweaty gear.

If we raise more than our goal, the money will be applied to the costs of upgrades at our new facility - e.g. more bathrooms. Now wouldn’t that be nice?

WHAT DO I GET OUT OF THIS?

First, you’ll receive the overwhelming satisfaction that comes from knowing that roller derby will remain accessible to all Angelenos and visiting skaters from around the world.

Secondly, you’ll get the undying gratitude of some kick–ass women who will be able to continue to play the sport that we love!

…Oh, you probably meant swag and perks, right? Why of course! We’ve got some very cool stuff for every donation level over there, or just drop us a few bucks!



Everyone who donates at any level will get a heartfelt thank you on our website.

HOW ELSE CAN I HELP?

Come to our events!  As long as we have a space, we will continue bouting.

Volunteer! If you have any skills or expertise that may help us in our move that you would care to donate, please contact us.
