Steel City Roller Derby (SCRD) (in their own words) is a skater owned and operated organization. We are Pittsburgh’s only all-female roller derby league, comprised of a diverse set of athletes from the nation’s home of superb sports teams. SCRD is taking all the action and exhilaration of yesterday’s roller derby and combining it with a new level of athleticism, moxie and drive, resulting in a revolutionary sport. With flat track roller derby leagues growing from 30 just a few years ago, to over 200 worldwide today, this new incarnation of an old sport is growing by leaps and bounds! Our skaters work constantly – both on and off the track and in and out of the gym – to represent Pittsburgh at home and on the road. We compete at the highest levels of gameplay throughout the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association.
As a 501c3 non-profit organization, SCRD is committed to fostering serious competition on a local, national, and international level, developing amateur athletes for competition, and promoting the physical and mental strength of all our female athletes.
