Varsity Derby League

Varsity Derby League (VDL) is Canberra’s gender-inclusive roller derby league. Anyone of any gender is welcome to join. We have two women’s teams, the DisHonour Rollers and the Rogue Scholars; a men’s team, Capital Carnage; and a mixed/non-gendered team, the Smackademics. We started out in 2011 as an ANU sports club, which is how we got our name.¬†VDL encourages people of all skill levels to join. Skaters and referees can progress through training at their own pace, there’s no pressure to meet skill standards within a certain timeframe. We aim to make VDL a supportive and fun ‘derby family’ while promoting¬†good sportsmanship, positive body image and diversity.
