The Renegade Derby Dames Roller Derby League (RDD) is a roller derby league based in Alliston, Ontario. Founded in 2011, the league consists of two teams, which compete against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded in April 2011 by a group of existing skaters from other teams in the region.[1] It played its first bout in November, taking on Durham Region Roller Derby.[2]

In January 2013, Renegade was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program.[3] The league played a more intensive schedule during 2013, bouting three weeks in a row during July.[4] On March 11, 2014, Renegade was made a full member of the WFTDA.[5]
