About RDLA


RollerDerby.LA was founded towards the end of 2012 by Whip N’ Ash, a skater for the LA Derby Dolls, and her husband German R. Verdilak, an advertising creative director. The couple are passionate fans and supporters of the sport and RDLA is the result of that passion.


The idea for the site emerged from the realization that the roller derby community in Los Angeles is constantly growing. In an attempt to keep track of that growth, we decided to create a directory of everything related to roller derby in Los Angeles. Think of it as the IMDB of Roller Derby in L.A. Our goal is to have the most complete listing of skaters, teams, leagues, referees and resources in the L.A. area, and even though Whip plays for LADD, our goal is to show support to ALL the leagues and teams out there.


RollerDerby.LA is a labour of love for both of us, which we work on during our “free” time. We rely on the roller derby community to help us gather all the information needed to make the site grow, so we tried to make it easy for individual skaters to submit their own profiles. As the site grows, we will be adding more automated features that will help keep things well organized and up to date.

We appreciate all support and feedback. If you would like to help out in any way, or if you notice an error or would like to add data to any existing profile, feel free to email us at RollerDerbyLA(at)gmail.com.
