The Glass City Rollers (GCR) is a roller derby league based in Toledo, Ohio. Founded in 2007, the league currently consists of a single team which competes against teams from other leagues.

By late 2009, the league had twenty skaters,[1] and it opened its first season in October by playing the Fox Cityz Foxz.[2] The league later inspired the founding of the Sandusky Rollergirls.[3]

Glass City was accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in April 2010,[4] and became a full member of the WFTDA in March 2012.[5]
