The Calgary Roller Derby Association is a not-for-profit flat-track roller derby league based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The CRDA was founded in 2007, and is skater-owned and skater-operated.

Currently, there are four teams within the league: The Cut-Throat Car Hops, the Thrashin' Lassies, the B-52 Bellas, and the All-Stars (travel team). The Hellion Rebellion were renamed the All-Stars in 2012. The Jane Deeres (travel B team) was defunct as of summer 2009. Each of these teams has a roster of approximately 15 skaters. There is also a Fresh Meat team of new skaters.

The league skates from April until September, at Triwood Arena, with charity and invitational scrimmages during the off-season. Skaters also frequently travel throughout the province to participate in invitational bouts.

The league was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme in January 2013.[1]
