The Lafayette Brawlin' Dolls (LBD) is a roller derby league based in Lafayette, Indiana. Founded in 2008, the league consists of two teams which compete against teams from other leagues.

The league was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in July 2010.[1]

By early 2012, the league had 31 skaters, of whom 14 were mothers,[2] and its bouts were attracting hundreds of spectators.[3] The growth in league membership permitted the creation of separate A and B teams.[4]
