The Mississippi Rollergirls is a roller derby league based in Gulfport, Mississippi. Founded in 2006, the league consists of a single team, which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded in 2006, and describes itself as having been the first flat track women's roller derby league in Mississippi.[1] It was bouting before the end of the following year.[2]

In October 2011, the league was accepted as an apprentice member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association,[3] and it graduated to full membership in December 2012.[4]
