We are Sheffield’s first and largest flat track roller derby league, forged by Jane Doe-a-Go-Go in 2008. Since then we’ve gone from a tiny local team, to a league competing at national level. In June 2013 we were accepted as full members of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), following completion of the Apprentice Program.
Sheffield Steel Roller Derby (SSRD) is currently made up of our competitive ‘A’ team who take part in the 5 Nations Championships, our Molten Mavens who comprise of those recently returning or starting out with contact and our Carbonites, our newest skaters who are learning the fundamentals of roller derby.
We are proud of our do-it-yourself roots as a skater-owned and skater-run amateur sports team. It takes an army of skaters, officials, volunteers, photographers, videographers, announcers, medics and many more to do what we do.
