Founded in 2006 by Georgia W. Tush, Montréal Roller Derby (MTLRD) is the very first Flat track Roller Derby league in North America. Today, MTLRD comprises three home teams and two travel teams.
MTLRD is well-known as a non-profit organization, the result of the labour of its members who all contribute as volunteers. At the heart of the league are the players, the referees, the coaches, the announcers and the volunteers. The golden rule is simple: for the players, by the players . Proceeds from local games, be it from sales of tickets, merchandise or drinks, as well as proceeds from special events, are all put towards the organization of future games, rental of training space, and funding of away games.
