Founded in March 2007 by eight local women, Columbia played its first bout in August 2007. In April 2009, it hosted and won the first South Carolina state championships, defeating the Lowcountry Highrollers and the Richland County Regulators.[2] It has attracted attention for the diverse jobs held by its members, including a figure skater and an aquatic biologist,[3] while its coach is a law professor at the University of South Carolina.[4]

The QuadSquad was accepted into the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in April 2011,[5] and became a full member of the WFTDA in March 2012.[6]

The league was described in the local Free Times as having “regional dominance”.[7] Columbia defeated the Carolina Rollergirls in February 2012, following which, it was ranked at number 25 in the Derby News Network Power Rankings. Announced a few hours before becoming a full WFTDA member, Columbia QuadSquad was the second apprentice league ever to enter the Power Rankings, after the London Rollergirls.[8]

In 2016, Columbia hosted a WFTDA Division 1 Playoff tournament at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center, which was forecasted to create over $300,000 in economic impact.[9]
