TBRDL is an incorporation that exists to promote the sport of roller derby in north west Canada.
They travel to other cities in their region and also to the USA for competition.
The league is a not for profit organization who donates a portion of their bout ticket sales to a chosen charity each season.
TBRDL supports it’s members and creates positive female role models in their community.
As a member of WFTDA, all activities of TBRDL are designed with the following in mind
– to foster sportsmanship
– safety of all participants
– all decisions are made by the skaters for the participants
The league recruits twice a year. We invite woman ages 18 and older to join an already diverse league of skaters, referees and volunteers.
We pride ourselves in being inclusive to all and men can join as referees.
TBRDL calls The Delaney Arena home and they hold all their bouts there.
Practices take place in the basement of the former Eatons Department Store.
