Mississippi Rollergirls is a women's flat track roller derby league based in Gautier, Mississippi. Founded in 2006, the league consists of a single team, which competes against teams from other leagues. Mississippi Rollergirls is a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).[1]

History[edit]

The league was founded in 2006, and describes itself as having been the first flat track women's roller derby league in Mississippi.[2] It was bouting before the end of the following year.[3]

In October 2011, the league was accepted as an apprentice member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association,[4] and it graduated to full membership in December 2012.[5] It was reported in April 2017 that the league was struggling with attrition due to injuries and life changes among its members.[6]
