The Jet City Rollergirls (JCRG) is a roller derby league based in Everett, Washington. Founded in 2006, the league currently consists of four teams and a mixed team which competes against teams from other leagues.

Jet City was founded in July 2006 by four friends,[1] who were inspired after watching the Rat City Rollergirls.[2] By mid-2007, when they held their first exhibition bout,[3] they already had around 60 skaters.[1] They played their first full season in 2008,[3] and became a full member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association the following year.[4]

The league initially played in a 900-seat venue at Everett Community College, but moved to its larger 2,000-seat venue in 2011, which they regularly sell out.[5] They were ranked seventh in the WFTDA's highly competitive West Region from mid-2010 through mid-2011, taking seventh place in the WFTDA West Region Playoffs in 2010,[6] and eighth in the 2011 tournament.[7]
