MRDA Board of Directors
What happened to the Men’s Derby Coalition?
The Men’s Derby Coalition was founded in 2007 as a loose federation of men’s derby leagues. Our primary goals were to promote men’s derby through sharing resources and contributing to the derby community. In the time since we started, men’s roller derby has gained enough momentum to require national level organization and games sanctioning. That’s where the Men’s Roller Derby Association comes in.
Put simply – the MDC grew up!
How is MRDA different?
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, insurance reciprocity with WFTDA, 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.
