Dear Fans and Family of Classic City Rollergirls,

Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) is conducting its third annual demographic survey of skaters and fans. In addition WFTDA is also conducting a separate Tournaments and Broadcasting Survey targeting skaters and fans who attended or watched any of the “Big 5” tournaments in 2011. Survey participants can also enter a drawing to win a WFTDA prize pack!

The surveys will be open from February 1 through February 15. Click the link below to be directed to the surveys.

Thanks for your support! We hope to see you all on Saturday for our season opener!

The results are in!

The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association has released the results from its 2012 demographic survey of roller derby fans, skaters and support staff. More than 8,000 people from around the world responded to this year’s survey, with about 35 percent identifying themselves as fans and the remainder consisting of sports participants.

While the demographic profile of roller derby fans and skaters has remained relatively consistent since the WFTDA first began surveying its audience in 2010, this year’s report reflects the growing interest in the sport outside of the United States. About 20 percent of this year’s survey respondents were based outside of the U.S., compared to 12 percent last year.

According to the survey, the roller derby audience remains predominately female (about 61 percent) and has an average age of 37. The average skater age is a bit younger, at 31. The vast majority of fans (83 percent) have at least some college education, and respondents reported an even distribution of household incomes.
