The Mojave Rattle Skaters is an all-female, 18 and over, flat track roller derby team. We are committed to the values of friendship, self and team empowerment. The Mojave Rattle Skaters was first established in May 2012. The MRS is owned, managed, and operated entirely by the skaters within the team, via the elected board and committee heads. It is the board’s and committee head’s job to work together for the team and continue to prepare the team to meet all WFTDA requirements. Our skaters do not get paid but rather, pay dues monthly in order to cover the costs of the team. Our skaters also are required to supply themselves with all necessary equipment for roller derby.
Mojave Rattle Skaters Mission Statement
The Mojave Rattle Skaters promotes dedication, discipline, athleticism, and maintains a positive role for women throughout the team and community. We have adopted the common derby motto of: “by the skaters, for the skaters”, which means that our own success will depend largely on our own dedication. We follow the rules and regulations set forth by the governing body of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) and hope to eventually become one of WFTDA’s official member leagues in the Western part of the United States.
