Richter City Roller Derby
Richter City Roller Derby (RCRD) is Wellington’s all female, flat track roller derby league. Established in 2007 by a handful of girls with a vision, Richter City introduced the growing sport of Roller Derby to the country’s capital. We are a non profit, skater owned and operated league. In 2013 Richter City became a fully qualified member of the international organization governing the sport of women’s flat track derby, the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).
Our League consists of a diverse group of around 40 skaters plus volunteers, who work tirelessly on and off the track to promote and strengthen our league and our sport. In our free time we manage the business side of the league, planning bouts, sponsorships and organising events within the community. Richter City emphasises the empowerment of all our members by development of athletic ability, good sportswoman-ship and dedication to the game. We are always looking for new skaters, referees, and volunteers to join the league.
As per our constitution the objectives of Richer City Roller Derby are:
– Promote and support the sport and spirit of Roller Derby
– Encourage women to join
– Hold competitive events and travel to other events
– Help other leagues/teams get started in NZ
Above all, the girls of Richter City are dedicated to giving our fans exactly what they want – Beauty, Brains, Bruises – and Roller Derby.
