Rainy City Roller Dolls (RCRD) is a women's flat track roller derby league based in Centralia, Washington. Founded in 2007, the league consists of a single team, which competes against teams from other leagues. Rainy City is a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).[1]

History[edit]

The league was founded in September 2007 by thirteen skaters,[2] By October, it was already practicing three times a week.[3]

Since 2008, Rainy City has organized the annual "Knocktoberfest", a four-team tournament.[4] In April 2011, it was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program,[5] and, in December 2012, it graduated to full membership.[6]

Starting in May of 2018, Rainy City will host a six team WFTDA sanctioned tournament called "Reign the Pain" at the RollerDrome in Centralia.
