HistoryEdit

The league was founded as Rage City Rollergirls in 2007 by a group of women, some of whom had previously watched roller derby elsewhere in the United States.[2] It played its first bout in May 2008, attracting a crowd of more than 1,000 fans. This was the first flat track roller derby bout in Alaska.[3]

Rage City joined the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice program in April 2010,[4] and became full members of the WFTDA in March 2011.[5]
