About the MRDA

The Men’s Derby Coalition was founded in 2007 as a loose federation of men’s derby leagues. The Men’s Roller Derby Association is a new incarnation of the MDC legacy. With the same passionate men and women at the helm of MRDA, we continue to promote men’s derby through resource sharing. But now – we are focused on developing more benefits to leagues who become members. Such benefits include: umbrella insurance coverage, and the ability to compete in the annual MRDA Championship tournament. With encouragement from the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), MRDA hopes to build a strong and influential organization like WFTDA. Our aim is to complement their contributions to the sport of roller derby and offer new perspectives to the derby community.
