The Choice City Rebels is a roller derby league based in Fort Collins, Colorado. Founded in 2009, the league currently consists of a single team which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded in October 2009 by ten established skaters,[1] who had previously played for FoCo Girls Gone Derby, and it held its first bout in December, against the Slaughterhouse Derby Girls.[2] In 2011, it reached the final of the roller derby tournament at the Greeley Stampede, where it again faced the Slaughterhouse team.[3]

Choice City was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in July 2010,[4] and became a full member of the WFTDA in March 2011.[5] At the end of 2012 Choice City refocused as a co-ed and banked track league.[6]
