Red Stick Roller Derby (RSRD) is a roller derby league based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Founded in 2007, the league currently consists of two teams which compete against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded in July 2007,[1] the second roller derby league in Louisiana after the Big Easy Rollergirls,[2] and played its first bout in October of 2008.[1] Soon, the league was competing with teams from across the south.[3]

Red Stick was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in July 2010,[4] and became a full WFTDA member in December 2011.[5]
