History

DCRD became Evansville's first ever flat-track roller derby league in January 2007. Since then DCRD has established itself as a non-profit league and is skater-owned and managed. DCRD has contributed over $16,000 to local charities and non-profit agencies as well as volunteered for organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Easter Seals, CJ's Bus, Indiana Blood Center and more. In June 2010, DCRD was granted membership into the North Central Region of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). After the region system was dissolved in favor of overall rankings, Demolition City was placed in Division 2, debuting at 95th overall.[2] In September 2014, Demolition City hosted Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) Division 1 International playoffs,[3] at the Ford Center, featuring teams from the United States, England and Canada.[4] In honor of the event, Evansville mayor Lloyd Winnecke declared the week of the event to be "Roller Derby Week" in the city.[5]
