NCDA was established in April 2015 to offer a collaborative, supportive, skater-led roller derby experience which nurtures all aspects of its members while having a significant positive impact on the North County community. We were founded by an eclectic group of skaters, trainers and coaches from diverse walks of life dedicated to the development of our sport and promoting female empowerment. The founding Board of Directors and inaugural training committee possessed 33 years of combined experience in the world of roller derby as skaters, coaches and managers. In December of 2015, fulfilling one of our 2015 goals, we obtained our Non-profit 501(c)3 exemption from the IRS. Though our league is young, we possess all of the characteristics necessary to establish a sustainable business and maintain our place as a highly skilled competitive league for years to come.
