The Cheyenne Capidolls is a women's flat track roller derby league based in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Founded in 2010, the league consists of two travel teams, which compete against teams from other leagues. Cheyenne is a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).[1]

The Capidolls remained undefeated for more than a year.[2] The league attracted attention by raising money for the local animal shelter,[2] and undertaking voluntary work, such as planting flowers in the city's downtown area.[3]

The league was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in January 2012,[4] and became a full member of the WFTDA in September 2012 - the first from Wyoming.[5]
