FoCo Roller Derby, formerly FoCo Girls Gone Derby, is a roller derby league based in Fort Collins, Colorado. Founded in 2006, the league currently consists of two teams, and two mixed teams which compete against teams from other leagues.

FoCo was founded in January 2006[1] and was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association in January 2009.[2] Several other leagues have origins in FoCo, including the Choice City Rebels,[3] and the Slaughterhouse Derby Girls.[4]

Since 2009, FoCo has held an annual "Black and Blue Ball", a formal event featuring an intraleague bout.[5]

At the start of FoCo's 10th season, the league rebranded from FoCo Girls Gone Derby to FoCo Roller Derby to represents inclusiveness, athleticism and the local community.[6]
