The Oklahoma Victory Dolls (OKVD) roller derby league was founded in November 2007 by a group of skaters who wanted to put Oklahoma City on the international roller derby map. It has since attracted women from around the OKC metro area, including experienced former members of other leagues around the U.S. OKVD practices and holds bouts year-round in Oklahoma City, and after five successful seasons, are currently planning to make roller derby even bigger in 2013. OKVD operates as a non-profit organization, and takes pride in giving back to the community.
Oklahoma Victory Dolls Mission: To provide opportunities for women in the Oklahoma City metro area to participate in the challenging and hard hitting sport of flat track roller derby. OKVD develops, harbors and supports the caliber of athletes that have the ability to compete on a national level. We are proud members of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), which provides each player the necessary standards for national and international competition. Furthermore, we are dedicated to providing community outreach through events, activities, and charitable sponsorship while creating a positive atmosphere that improves our members' individual athleticism, self-discipline, and character.
The Oklahoma Victory Dolls are extremely honored to be the youngest member league ever accepted into the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association. Only with hard work from the women of the league and help from experienced surrounding leagues were we able to accomplish this feat. We consider the member leagues of the WFTDA to be an elite group, the best in the world, and feel incredibly privileged by our association with the founders of modern-day roller derby.
