The Chattanooga Roller Girls (CRG) is a roller derby league based in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Founded in 2008, the league consists of a single travel team, which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was formed in August 2008,[1] by about thirty women.[2] It played its first bout in December 2009[1] and, by mid-2011, was attracting crowds of more than 1,000 people.[2]

Chattanooga was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in April 2010,[3] and became a full member of the WFTDA in September 2012.[4]
