ECDX’13: June 28th – 30th, 2013!
50 Bouts | 3 Rinks | 1 Weekend
Founded in 2007 by Philly Roller Girls, the East Coast Derby Extravaganza (ECDX) is a large-scale women’s flat track roller derby event featuring a weekend full of competition with teams from across the US and Canada. This year marks the seventh year of our event! ECDX’13 will take place June 28 – 30 at the Sportsplex in Feasterville, PA. Participants will include Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) member leagues as well as non-WFTDA leagues eligible to apply for membership into the national organization.
Two rinks will feature full-length, sanctioned bouts between all-star teams of WFTDA member leagues, while one additional rink will host half-hour challenge bouts between travel teams not participating in WFTDA action, as well as home teams and Extravaganza-special teams composed of players from across the derby world. That’s three rinks of simultaneous derby action!
The ECDX was conceived with the goal of making women’s flat track roller derby more accessible to leagues in both the East and North WFTDA regions. But with our 6th anniversary upon us, Philly Roller Girls has grown the event into a tournament that is attended by skaters from around the region and beyond. The 2012 ECDX hosted more than 120 WFTDA and non-WFTDA leagues comprising over 1000 skaters, with an additional 200 referees, officials, statspeople and announcers.
2013 is going to be the biggest and best ECDX yet!
The event is open to the public and offers a one-of-a-kind, unforgettable roller derby experience. Tickets are available in single-bout, single-day or full-weekend passes.
