The Grand Raggidy Roller Girls is a roller derby league based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Founded in 2005, the league currently consists of three mixed teams which compete against teams from other leagues.

Four of the league's skaters appeared as themselves in the movie Whip It!: Dot Matrix, Shutter Speed, Tamara Hurtsworse, and Jackie Daniels, who was recruited after skating for the mixed-league "Team Awesome" in Los Angeles.[1]

The league qualified for the 2007 WFTDA Eastern Region Playoffs; they were seeded eleventh and lost in the first round.[2] They qualified again the following year,[3] finishing in tenth place.[4] Following restructuring of the league, they qualified for the 2009 WFTDA North Central Region Playoffs, seeded seventh, but lost all their bouts to finish tenth.[5]
