The Rollergirls of Central Kentucky (ROCK) is a flat track roller derby league based in Lexington, Kentucky. Founded in 2006, the league consists of a single team, which competes against teams from other leagues, with an associated junior roller derby team.

ROCK briefly merged with a league based in Richmond, Kentucky, but this was dissolved in late 2007, ROCK re-establishing an independent existence. It played its first exhibition game in December, and started its first full season in 2008.[1] At the time, it had two intraleague teams, the Bourbon Brawlers and Sour Scouts, although these were later dissolved.[2] By 2012, the league was playing an 11-game season, competing against leagues such as the Black-n-Bluegrass Rollergirls.[3]

Central Kentucky was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in January 2012,[4] and it became a full WFTDA member in September 2013.[5]
