About PPDD

The Pikes Peak Derby Dames was founded during the summer of 2005, when one woman 
from Colorado Springs, Colorado decided to take on the challenge  of starting up a roller derby
league in her home town. 

Founded by Slugs-N-Kisses, the league has been growing one woman at a time ever since.  
PPDD is a diverse group of female athletes committed to the athletic development and 
empowerment of women in the Pikes Peak region. 

PPDD is not only the first flat track roller derby league in the Springs, we are the only 
league affilated with the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), the international 
governing body of women's flat track roller derby. They set the standards for rules, safety, 
minimum skills and other guidelines.

PPDD Mission Statement
Pikes Peak Derby Dames' mission is to foster athleticism, personal empowerment, and community 
relationships through playing and promoting the fast-paced, hard-hitting, competitive sport of 
women's flat track roller derby. Pikes Peak Derby Dames provides an equal opportunity for athletes 
of all skill levels and abilities to succeed by discovering strengths, overcoming weaknesses, and 
challenging themselves, both on and off the track. 

PPDD Teams

There are 5 PPDD teams. The Danger DollsCandy Snipers and Killer Queens are the league's home 
teams. Every member of PPDD is placed on one of these teams and once they have passed 
the WFTDA skills assesment test, they will be allowed to bout publicly in Home Team bouts.

The Slamazons are the "B" team, and play other league's "B" teams. They do travel for 
some of their bouts. "B" team bouts are not santioned nor count towards our international 
ranking. The ladies that have tried out for the Slamazons have shown a higher skill level 
and a strong commitment to the league and the sport itself.

Our PPDD All Stars represent the league in sanctioned WFTDA inter-league competitions that 
count towards the international rankings. These ladies are playing and competing at the 
highest level of gameplay.

PPDD Staff

The Dames would not be where they are without the tireless work and dedication of the many 
volunteers that help us on a day to day basis. The referees, non-skating members, photographers, 
EMTs and more are a huge part of our league and we can't thank them enough for all that they 
do for PPDD. Click here to check out who they are and how to become a staff member yourself.
