The Denver Roller Dolls are made up of nine teams: five home teams, two traveling all-star teams, the men’s team Ground Control and the C Team the StandBys. Every skater in the league is put on a home team once he/she passes a series of basic skills tests. The home teams are a place for skaters to continue developing their skills while also learning teamwork and advanced strategy. The Denver Roller Dolls home teams primarily play intraleague bouts, but will occasionally play against the home teams of other local leagues.
The best skaters on each home team may also compete on one of the Denver Roller Dolls’ two traveling all-star teams: Mile High Club and Bruising Altitude. The Mile High Club represents DRD on the national level. These are the most feared and ferocious skaters in the league. The Mile High Club has consistently been ranked among the top ten in the nation since their third place finish at the national championships in 2009 and produced internationally recognized skaters.
The Denver Roller Dolls are so overflowing with talent that in 2009 a second traveling team was created. Bruising Altitude, the Denver Roller Dolls junior varsity team, is a place for up and coming skaters to gain experience and continue to sharpen their skills. Bruising Altitude is recognized as one of the fiercest ‘B’ teams in the country.
