Orangeville Roller Girls follows the Rules and guidelines set forth by the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), and subscribes to it’s “by the skaters, for the skaters” ethic.
Embodying the values of friendship, empowerment, dedication discipline, we demonstrate positive roles for women and act as contributing members of the local community, giving back through outreach, volunteerism and fundraising.
We will place character before appearance, be welcoming rather than exclusive, and honorable rather than popular: work earnestly , speak kindly, act sincerely and choose thoughtfully, be a good sport always, never be discouraged , be loyal in the words and actions to the ideas of our derby peers while also raising our own voices, so that together the members of our league become an expression of that which is truest and strongest in all of us.
The League operates as a de facto non-profit organization as of right now. All money that comes in to our league goes to defraying the costs of renting venue space, putting on bouts, creating merchandise and marketing materials, and helping with insurance, liability expenses and any other expenses that may arise.
