Rage City Rollergirls (RCR) is a roller derby league based in Anchorage, Alaska. RCR currently consists of three teams plus a mixed team which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded in 2007 by a group of women, some of whom had previously watched roller derby elsewhere in the U.S.[1] It played its first bout in May 2008, attracting a crowd of more than 1,000 fans. This was the first flat track roller derby bout in Alaska.[2]

Rage City joined the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice program in April 2010,[3] and became full members of the WFTDA in March 2011.[4]
