We are an amateur sports team that has been driving the derby revolution in South Wales since May 2010. Roller derby is a highly competitive sport that is played by female, male or co-ed teams and is the fastest growing sport in the UK!

SCRD consists of two all female teams:- The  SCRD Slayers (A team) and SCRD Dragons (B team).   We also have a junior team.


We also have more A team and B team games lined up for the coming season.

So what is Roller Derby?

Roller Derby has a 75 year history as a sport, originating in the USA. It has recently been revived internationally by women who have returned the sport to its original athletic roots.

Roller Derby is a contact sport played on quad roller skates where teams skate round on an elliptical track. A team consists of two main types of players: jammers and blockers. It is the jammer's responsibility to score the points for her team by lapping the opposing team members. A blocker's goal is to prevent the opposing team's jammer from scoring points and aid their own jammer to score points. The team with the most points wins!
