Statement regarding behaviour expectations

In light of the recent issue regarding sexually inappropriate behaviour, UKRDA would like to take the time to reiterate that any form of sexually inappropriate behaviour in any form or physical assault is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. If you have experienced such acts within the UK Roller Derby community or out of the UK we are truly sorry and we are here to listen.

We encourage those who have experienced any of these acts to raise their complaints with the relevant skater leagues or if you feel you can not, raise your complaint with us, we will investigate all complaints fully and take action when it’s required. We do not take allegations of this nature lightly.

Roller Derby should always be maintained as a safe space in all areas. To ensure this we need your voices, leagues or individuals may not know the history of individuals joining their league, by asking for references and sharing experiences we can help ensure that every member of our leagues is vetted appropriately before joining.

They are a not-for-profit organisation with a strong do-it-yourself ethos. BBRD are run by their members and volunteers, brought together by their mutual love of the amazing sport of Roller Derby.

Not all of the brawlers skate to compete, there are plenty who attend for love of being on 8 wheels and amongst friends on the track, and sessions do provide for that, if you are looking to work hard both on and off the track in an environment that promotes physical and mental strength, independence and pushes to represent at as high a level possible for an amateur athletic organisation, you have come to the right place.

Retaining a not-for-profit status and DIY-ethos, we aim to be an all-inclusive, welcoming, democratically-run organisation following the officiating guidelines and rules set down by the WFTDA. We welcome skaters aged 18+ from all backgrounds irrespective of race, colour, creed or sexual orientation. We aim to foster a supportive atmosphere, maintaining high safety standards and developing skills and athleticism while promoting teamwork as an essential factor for success.

Welcome to Dare Valley Vixens Roller Derby!

Dare Valley Vixens Roller Derby

The Dare Valley Vixens were founded in January 2013 in Tylorstown in the Rhondda and are currently the only roller derby team based in the South Wales Valleys.

They are now located at Abercynon Sports Centre just outside Pontypridd where they have recently been lucky enough to have their own derby track painted. They are a small but slowly expanding team of skaters who train every Monday and Friday (with the occasional co-ed mixed scrim thrown in).

DVVRD also run a very successful recreational skating session for all ages which then feeds in to their derby training (and maybe one day a Junior League too).

They’re always on the lookout for guest coaches so if you fancy popping along and running them through their paces then please drop them a line at darevalleyvixens@gmail.com.
