The Flint City Derby Girls (FCDG) is a roller derby league based in Flint, Michigan. Founded in 2007, the league consists of one team which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded in March 2007. In 2009, it created a roller derby program at the University of Michigan–Flint.[1] For many years, the league played its bouts at the Rollhaven Family Fun Center, but in 2012 it moved to the larger Perani Arena, while continuing to use the Rollhaven venue for scrimmage and practices.[2]

In January 2011, Flint was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program,[3] but it is no longer listed as a member as of February 2013.[4]
