Rage City Rollergirls (RCR) is a roller derby league based in Anchorage, Alaska. RCR currently consists of two teams, the Rage City All*Stars and Orange Crush. The Rage City All-Stars represent the best of Rage City and travel all over the world to compete in bouts. Orange Crush is RCR's "b-team", playing mostly home games and bouts throughout the state.
The league was founded in 2007 by a group of women, some of whom had previously watched roller derby elsewhere in the U.S. It played its first bout in May 2008, attracting a crowd of more than 1,000 fans. This was the first flat track roller derby bout in Alaska.
