Vette City Roller Derby (VCRD) is a roller derby league based in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Founded in 2009, the league consists of two teams, which compete against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded, as the Vette City Vixens, by Jenni Johnson, after she saw the Nashville Roller Girls play.[1] It has attracted publicity for hosting children's skating events.[2]

The league was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme in July 2012,[3] and became a full member of the WFTDA in June 2013.[4]
