The Salt City Derby Girls (SCDG) Banked Track league was based in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Formed in 2005,[1] SCDG was composed of four local teams and one all-star traveling team.

In 2011, The Salt City Derby Girls changed their focus and became a Banked Track Roller Derby League, due to being kicked out of flat track competition for multiple occurrences of unsportsmanlike conduct. All home teams competed against each other on the Banked Track to claim the trophy and title as Season Champions. The Salt City Shakers competed nationally on both Banked Track and Flat Track. They are also known to kick out members with little, or no reason.

The four teams wore distinct colors: The Bomber Babes wore camouflage and Olive drab, the Death Dealers wore Purple, the Leave it to Cleavers wore Red and White, often with cherry accents and the Sisters of No Mercy wore Black and Gold with nun habit accents. The All-star Travel team wore the league colors of Black and Yellow. They practiced at the Taylorsville Recreation Center in the Salt Lake City suburb of Taylorsville, Utah, and held local bouts at the Salt Palace in downtown Salt Lake City.

As of 2013, the Salt City Derby Girls are no longer an active league. Due to money owed from the league president Brew Haha!, the league is now defunct.
