Little Steel Derby Girls (LSDG) is a women's flat track roller derby league based in Youngstown, Ohio. Founded in 2008, the league currently consists of two teams which compete against teams from other leagues. Little Steel is a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).[1]

History

The league was founded in December 2008 by Tifany Griffith, known as "Ground Zero". Little Steel won its first bout, against a Steel City Derby Demons team,[2] but progress was initially slow, and it was only in October 2010 that it was ready to play its first home bout.[3] By early 2011, the league had 24 skaters, and was aiming to join the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).[2]

Little Steel was accepted into the WFTDA Apprentice Program in October 2011,[4] and became a full member of the WFTDA in June 2012.[5]
