Gender Inclusivity Statement
Rockstar Roller Derby (RRD) is committed to inclusivity in relation to all transgender women, intersex women, and gender expansive participants. An individual who identifies as a transgender woman, intersex woman, and/or gender expansive may skate with RRD if women’s flat-track exhibition roller derby is the version and composition of roller derby with which they most closely identify. RRD recognizes that identifying as transgender, intersex, and/or gender expansive is not in any way related to an individual’s eligibility for participating as a volunteer.
Rockstar Roller Derby (RRD) is committed to promoting an environment that is welcoming and inclusive of transgender, intersex, and gender expansive participants. Any conduct which fosters a hostile environment for any participant on the basis of gender identity will not be tolerated. The gender identity of any and all RRD participants is considered confidential and private.
[“Transgender” refers to an individual whose gender identity does not match their assigned birth gender.]
[“Intersex” is a general term used for a variety of conditions in which a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male]
[“Gender-expansive” is an umbrella term used for individuals that broaden commonly held definitions of gender, including its expression, associated identities, and/or other perceived gender norms, in one or more aspects of their life. […] Some individuals do not identify with being either male or female; others identify as a blend of both, while still others identify with a gender, but express their gender in ways that differ from stereotypical presentations.]
What makes us special?
At Rockstar Roller Derby we present to you – a 360 degree game of both physical and mental stamina. A modern twist on an old school tradition, we are here to provide quality (sometimes questionable), high impact sports entertainment.
Our blockers are relentless enforcers. Our jammers are determined evaders.
Each skater has their own unique technique – giving them the edge they need over the competition. A ruthless combination of skill and style is all they need to knock their opposition down – to the ground, or just an emotional peg or two.
Awareness is everything, but keen as they are – these skaters can’t always predict what will happen next. Quick action and fast feet keep them on their toes and they always have to keep an eye out for those unfriendly elbows.
Don’t fret though – any unsavory moves WILL be judged. Our unsportswomanlike skater will have to answer to PENALTY PLINKO. Once her fate is decided, she will face off against the strongest challenger from the opposing team in a battle to preserve her own team’s points.
Remember that Roller Derby from Saturday morning TV?
Yeah – it’s that kind of Derby.
