The Derby City Rollergirls (DCRG) is a roller derby league based in Louisville, Kentucky. Founded in 2007, the league currently consists of a single team, which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded in 2007 by Jenni Ahlrich, known as "Bad Penny", after she had met a team from Austin, Texas.[1] In its early days, it played at the Kentucky State Fairgrounds, often selling out the venue.[2]

The league joined the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) in 2009, and played its first WFTDA regulation bout against the Naptown Roller Girls in January 2010.[3]
