Seeking Volunteers for the 2020 Season!
March 14 — April 18
We always need help making our home bouts a success! Our volunteers receive FREE pizza and FREE admission. A quick 5-minute training session will prepare you to help with post-game tear-down and general event coordination. The more, the merrier!

In addition to competing throughout the Midwest, LRD is proud to host a number of home games throughout the year, currently at the Tippecanoe Country Fairgrounds.
LRD takes pride in community engagement. A percentage of all ticket sales (plus funds raised during home bouts) supports a local charity work in Tippecanoe County.
Thanks to your support, we were able to give The Girl Scouts of Central Indiana almost $700 in 2017 and over $400 to the BackPack Program run by the Rotary Club of Lafayette in 2018, and $400 to the Girl Scouts in 2019. As a grassroots organization we understand the importance of giving back to our larger community and whenever possible support local businesses and charities through volunteerism and donations.
Lafayette Roller Derby has been a Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) member since 2013.
