The Radioactive City RollerGirls (RCRG) is a roller derby league based in Paducah, Kentucky. Founded in 2007, the league consists of a single team, which competes against teams from other leagues.

By 2010, the league was attracting crowds of around three hundred fans to its regular bouts.[1] In April 2011, it was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program.[2]

In 2012, Radioactive City lost its practice space at the Julian Carroll Convention Center, after its rates were greatly increased, and had to temporarily hold practices at an outdoor skate park.[3] The league is no longer active.
