Nominated for: BEST Sports Team
Rat City Rollergirls, LLC, (RCRG) is Seattle, WA's first all female roller derby league. Named after an "old-school" term for the south part of town, RCRG was established via a grassroots movement of strong-minded women in April 2004. The league is comprised of 80+ member/owners and includes five teams. These teams participate in competitive roller derby bouts on a flat track in an amateur athletic season that lasts from February through October.
Our mission is to provide recreational amateur athletic entertainment that improves member's individual athletic ability, self-discipline, and character while promoting the sport of roller derby. Our program provides regular supervised training, instruction, and competition to preparing our members to represent Seattle at national and international competition. We are dedicated to providing community outreach through events, activities, and charity sponsorship. We are also advocates for similar roller derby leagues to encourage the art and sport of roller derby nationally and internationally.
