The DC Rollergirls are the only flat track roller derby league in Washington, D.C. Historically, DC was home to the Washington, D.C. Jets, which played banked track derby until 1978.[1] Roller derby has grown in popularity since 2003, largely due to the creation of the WFTDA. The DC Rollergirls play most of their bouts at the DC Armory and Dulles SportsPlex.
