Bismarck, ND— The Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) is proud to announce that
Bisman Bombshellz has been accepted as an “Apprentice” affiliate of the WFTDA, the governing body for
women’s amateur flat track roller derby.
As an Apprentice affiliate of the WFTDA, Bisman Bombshellz joins the ranks of more than 400 all-female,
skater-owned- and-operated leagues worldwide that have united to lead the growing sport of women’s flat
track roller derby.
WFTDA apprentice leagues are matched with veteran member leagues who guide them in the processes
and requirements necessary to become a full member of the Association. WFTDA Apprentice leagues
are considered “pre-members” of the WFTDA and have access to many of the resources and benefits of
