Central Coast Roller Derby is a roller derby league based in Paso Robles, California. Founded in 2006, the league previously consisted of two mixed teams which competed against teams from other leagues. For 2012, it is also instituting three home teams which will compete against each other. These are the A-Town Asylum, the Broad St. Brawlers, and Paso Aggressive.[1]

The league was founded by Carey Jones, who skates as "Cheeba", and Heather Coss, "Rotten Peaches", in January 2006. It quickly developed a dual focus, both on playing the sport, and on raising money for charity.[2] The league affiliated with the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), but in 2010 a spokesperson noted that their short-term priorities were to move up in the rankings, rather than to qualify for the WFTDA Western Regional Tournament.[3]
