Team Spain Roller Derby or the Spanish Roller Derby National Team represents Spain in international roller derby competitions such as the Roller Derby World Cup. It was created in 2013 with the goal of competing at the 2014 Roller Derby World Cup, which it did, December 4 to 7 in Dallas, Texas.

History

Team Spain was created in June 2013, through the initiative of the skaters themselves, who desired to create a national team to compete internationally with Spain's first-ever national roller derby squad. The project began with the creation of a work group who selected Daisy Dioxin and Ref Judge Fred as Bench Staff.[citation needed] Shortly after, a first round of tryouts was held in December 16 to 18, 2013 in Madrid, Tenerife and Barcelona, which was attended by a total of 52 skaters.[citation needed] Additionally, video applications were submitted. A total of 35 skaters were selected to comprise the initial squad.[citation needed]

Roster

This initial roster comprised 11 skaters from Barcelona Roller Derby, 10 from Tenerife Roller Derby, two from Black Thunders Derby Dames (Madrid), two from London Rollergirls, as well as one each from Alcoy Roller Derby, Dutchland Rollers, Garden State Rollergirls, Lisboa Roller Derby Troopers, Manchester Roller Derby, Rayo Dockers Valencia, Roller Derby Cáceres, Roller Derby Madrid, Toronto Roller Derby and Zaragoza Roller Derby.
