Sponsored Team: Rat City Roller Derby

Rat City Roller Derby

Join us in welcoming Rat City Roller Derby to our roster of sponsored teams for 2023. Based in Seattle, Washington, Rat City was founded in April 2004 as Rat City Rollergirls. Their original name was inspired by the nickname for the south Seattle neighborhood of White Center “Rat City”, where RCRD started playing at the Southgate Roller Rink.

Within months Rat City grew to four teams and 80+ skater-members who also formed one of the first all-star teams to represent RCRD on the national and international level.

Rat City values growing the local derby community, whether by hosting training camps, coaching junior derby, informally scrimmaging with teams from nearby leagues, or hosting tournaments like the first Bumberbout at Bumbershoot (2006), or WFTDA playoffs showcasing the best international teams in the sport.

In 2019, Rat City Roller Derby took the steps to fully transition to a non-profit organization and give back to their local communities in every way possible. We're proud to welcome them to the roster of Superfit Hero Sponsored Teams for 2023.
