Cajun Rollergirls or CRG, are a women's flat-track roller derby league based in Houma, Louisiana, founded in 2008.

History[edit]

It all started in March 2008 with a call out for skaters from Olive Torture.

In August 2008 the CRG held its first scrimmage game at Wheels R Rollin. The competitive teams were a blended combination of players from the Big Easy Roller Girls, and the Austin Hustlers. After a short boot camp conducted by the Austin Hustlers a Black team and a White team were created. The Black team emerged as the victors.

Also in August 2008 The Cajun Rollergirls donated a truck load of school supplies at a donations drive held by 106.3 radio station.

After the hurricane season of 2008 our league did not come together until November when the league competed in a flag football tournament held by the Nicholls State Human Performance Majors Club. The CRG helped collect $200.00 in team sponsorships benefitting The Komen for the Cure Breast Cancer research Fund.

In December 2008 we held our first annual Toys for Tots Bar Hop.

In 2009, the CRG saw its first installation of officers. It was also the first year the CRG was invited to participate in San Fermin Nueva Orleans, a Gulf Coast derby tradition. In November 2009 the CRG held its first large venue bout at the Harang Municipal Auditorium and (due to low participation numbers) were only able to play by teaming up with the Pearl River Swamp Dolls.

The new recruits gained during the 2010 season have allowed for the scheduling of the first competitive season in the history of the Cajun Rollergirls.[1]

In March 2013, the Cajun Rollergirls became a full member of the WFTDA.[2]
