Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not practicing or accepting new members at this time. We believe in putting public health before our sport, so are following Return-to-Play guidelines set by our governing body, the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). We are currently unsure of when we will be practicing again, but we will be practicing again!
Our practices have been suspended since March 2020. We had to postpone our 6th annual internationally sanctioned tournament, Coastal Chaos, with hopes that we would be able to host it in 2021. It likely goes without saying, but we will not be able to host Coastal Chaos in 2021 either.
Along with postponing Coastal Chaos, we had to cancel other events such as fundraisers, games, and a charity bout that would have benefitted the Maine chapter of the Alzheimer's Association.
As we are a volunteer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, ticket sales from these events provide nearly all of our income and the loss of that income has been challenging. Though we have not practiced since March, we are still here, and so are our expenses.
