York City Derby Dames (YCDD) is committed to raising awareness of Roller Derby as a sport by involving the public and bringing further understanding to fans. YCDD is steadfast in its support of our community through public outreach, events, activities and charity sponsorships. We strive to be a stronghold in role-modeling the future and in building positive relationships in our area.
Determined and energetic, skating members are dedicated to reaching a new level of athleticism. YCDD prides itself on its self-discipline and professionalism, and is a full member in good standing of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), operating in accordance with WFTDA requirements.
In 2018, the league expanded to incorporate gameplay under the Modern Athletic Derby Endeavor (MADE) ruleset to offer even more athletic opportunities for adults in our community. In this same year, we were delighted to establish a Junior Derby team that allows for children ages eight to 17 to develop physical and social fitness in a fun, safe, team-oriented environment.
Our mission is to foster empowerment in the residents of York County by providing structured training, competition, and an opportunity to open a chapter of positive reinforcement in the lives of those involved.
