The Rainy City Roller Dolls (RCRD) is a roller derby league based in Centralia, Washington. Founded in 2007, the league consists of a single team, which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded in September 2007 by thirteen skaters,[1] By October, it was already practicing three times a week.[2]

Since 2008, Rainy City has organized the annual "Knocktoberfest", a four-team tournament.[3] In April 2011, it was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program,[4] and, in December 2012, it graduated to full membership.[5]
