We are Cleveland's only flat-track roller derby league. We are a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). We have more than 70 member skaters, who are divided among teams. We have both home teams who play each other in intraleague bouts and travel teams who play against other leagues. Some of these travel team games are sanctioned by WFTDA and count toward our national rankings.
Our league colors are blue and orange, though each team within the league has their own colors. We have incorporated a theme throughout the league relating to the burning river concept, including the travel team names, our logos and the home team championship trophy, the Hazard Cup.
Skaters must pass a skills test during a predetermined recruiting period or transfer from another league to become a member of the Burning River Roller Girls. At that point they become a member of our farm team (pool of skaters eligible to be drafted) and from there they can eventually end up on a home team, a travel team or both.
