The Junction City Roller Dolls (JCRD) are an all-volunteer women’s flat-track roller derby league. We focus on furthering the sport of roller derby by giving members the training and knowledge needed to compete, and the opportunity to showcase their talent within our community and beyond. JCRD encourages fitness and friendly competition, providing members with a positive and constructive environment that promotes athleticism, dedication, teamwork, and friendship, on and off the track. Each member of JCRD shares in the responsibility of running and growing the league.
The Junction City Roller Dolls were founded in June 2008 by a handful of committed skaters determined to bring roller derby to Ogden, Utah. The league was accepted as a member of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association in March 2011.
The Junction City Roller Dolls are made up of two teams: Trainwrecks and LOCO-motives. The Trainwrecks are JCRD’s all-star travel team. They compete against teams from other WFTDA leagues across the West, with the goal of advancing in international rankings and qualifying for playoffs. The LOCO-Motives are JCRD’s “B” team. The LOCO-Motives provide opportunities for all JCRD skaters to learn in a supportive atmosphere, build their skills, and participate in bouts against other leagues in our region.
