The Mason-Dixon Roller Vixens (MDRV) are a women’s flat track roller derby league and a member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). We are fully tax-exempt under the 501(c)3 non-profit organization code with the Internal Revenue Service. Through charity and fundraising, we will continue to help fortify the amateur sport of roller derby.
MDRV was formed in June 2007 and began skating at I-Skate 81 in Greencastle, P.A. The first two years were spent learning how to play professional roller derby, filling in game line-ups, doing introductions and exhibitions. By December 2009, we had completed our first full game season! In March 2010, MDRV became a part of the WFTDA Apprentice Program. Two years later, in March 2012, MDRV was inducted as a Class B member of WFTDA and has grown into Western Maryland’s premier women’s roller derby league. Our practices and home games are hosted at Turners Skate Palace in Hagerstown, MD.
Mission Statement: “MDRV is a women’s roller derby league dedicated to sportswomanship, physical fitness, personal and social development and community involvement. MDRV strives to support our league by partaking in competitive bouting under WFTDA rules, teamwork and encouragement. We support our community through sisterhood, outreach, fundraising and volunteering. By adhering to the “for the skaters, by the skaters” ideology we practice discipline, dedication, compassion, fairness and the power of hard work to achieve our goals.” -MDRV
