Hello! I’m the league’s Chairperson, Megan “Scargyle” Foldenauer, PhD. Welcome to the official Ann Arbor Derby Dimes’ (A2D2) website! Our league is dedicated to excellence in the sport of women’s roller derby and support of our southeastern Michigan community. A2D2 formed in May of 2010 by a group of dedicated, entrepreneurial women and our growth has been exponential ever since. Today, we have three teams - The Brawlstars (A-Team), The Arbor Bruising Company (B-Team), and The Ypsilanti Vigilantes (Home Team) - comprised of approximately 125 skaters. Our biannual Fresh Meat boot camps accept all hopeful derby girls, no matter skating ability, and we welcome transfer skaters!
Along with a strong group of referees, NSOs, and other member volunteers, our goal is to promote athleticism, empowerment, and to create a sense of camaraderie and teamwork among our members, as well as respect for our competitors.
Real, strong, athletic, revolutionary! In August of 2012, we acquired WFTDA Apprenticeship status and anticipate completion of the requirements for full member status in December 2013. We proudly uphold the WFTDA mission, “for the skater, by the skater”.
Lastly, we are an all-volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit organization – if you love roller derby and share our philosophies, please contact us to become part of the Dime family!
