The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association has extended full membership status to eight additional leagues today, following their successful completion of the WFTDA Apprentice Program. We’re excited to announce that with these most recent graduates, the WFTDA’s member league total has surpassed the 400 mark. We’re proud of how much we have grown as an organization since beginning with just a handful of leagues in 2005 and are looking forward to the continued development of the sport and the WFTDA community.
The new Class C members can now enjoy the benefits of full WFTDA membership, including competing in sanctioned games and becoming eligible for rankings. This group of new members includes leagues from the United States, Europe, and New Zealand.
The WFTDA now has 405 member leagues and 41 apprentice leagues. Congratulations to:
