The Rainier Rollergirls (RRG) are an all-female flat track roller derby league based out of Southgate Roller Rink in White Center, Seattle, Washington. We are a small competitive travel team made of 20-plus active skaters, retired skaters and volunteers. We believe all is possible with a little elbow grease, an amazing support system, and loyal fans.
In August 2011, a group of Puget Sound skaters spent the weekend camping, skating, and dreaming of an ideal league situation. September 1st, 2011 Rainier Rollergirls opened it's doors as an official non-profit amateur sports league.
Today, the Rainier Rollergirls are a full WFTDA member. We are a skater-owned league providing a safe place for women and men to be a part of a competitive athletic program. We focus on fitness, mental game and fun for both the skater and fans. We hope to provide a positive impact in both the roller derby and Seattle communities.
