The Cherry City Derby Girls (CCDG) is a roller derby league based in Salem, Oregon. Founded in 2009, the league consists of four home teams(Dolls of Anarchy, Panty Raiders, Thrill Kill Kittens, and Rydell Belles), and two all-star travel teams (Boneyard Brawlers and 8-Wheel Assassins) which compete against teams from other leagues.

By March 2010, Cherry City was attracting more than 3,000 fans to its bouts,[1] while the team's skaters ranged from 18 to over 50 years old.[2]

The league was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in July 2010,[3] and became a full member of the WFTDA in December 2012.[4]
