The Enid Roller Girls (ERG) is a roller derby league based in Enid, Oklahoma. Founded in 2010, the league consists of a single team, which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded by Jamie Garen, known as "Jme Jawbreaker", after she saw the sport played in Oklahoma City. Enid developed strong links with the Oklahoma Victory Dolls, and by the start of 2011, the squad had twelve skaters and was focusing on finding a permanent venue for training and future bouts.[1] By 2013, it was playing against local rivals such as Oklahoma City Roller Derby, and had skaters from a wide variety of backgrounds.[2]

The league was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme in July 2012,[3] and became a full member of the WFTDA in June 2013.[4]
