Who Is Roller Derby Nation?

The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) is conducting two surveys to learn more about you, the people who make up derby nation—the skaters, fans, sponsors, medics, officials, photographers, and all who take part in this great sport. Last year over 10,000 people took the survey revealing trends that have sponsors clamoring to be a part of the meteoric rise of modern roller derby. Derby nation is the mom next door, your lawyer, your kid’s teacher, it’s all around you…and it’s growing.

Please fill out a short survey by February 15th. Your confidential answers will help the national association and your local roller derby league improve the fan experience. If you provide your email, you could win some WFTDA swag for your time.
