The State of the Roller Derby
I've been involved in roller derby for 10 years. As a skater, league president, business owner, fan & volunteer.

The growth and development of the sport has fascinated me. And so much has changed in such a short time!

The aim of this survey is to take a snapshot of the sport and community at this moment in time.

The questions were crowd-sourced from the community - so there are a lot of them! (Apparently we all want to know different things about our sport!?) But I hope you will take the time to go through them - the more data we have the better!

The results of the survey will be collated and posted online. Hopefully the information will help move the sport forward in a continued positive, collaborative direction. Cos it's pretty awesome! But I bet we can make it even MORE awesome!
