The Cherry City Derby Girls are Salem, Oregon’s roller derby league, and an Oregon State nonprofit corporation founded in early 2009. We’re approximately 150 skaters strong, with a growing base of dedicated volunteers.
Our mission is to foster the national amateur sport of women’s roller derby through the development and support of amateur athletes and a league of teams for local and national competition.
In December 2012, we were accepted into the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) as a full member league. 381 member leagues and 66 apprentice leagues worldwide have united to lead the growing sport of women’s flat track roller derby.
Volunteers are an important component to the success of the Cherry City Derby Girls. The following list is an overview of the Board of Directors and current committees that help maintain CCDG. Each committee consists of a chairperson who organizes volunteers in that committee. The chair of the committee is responsible for reporting back to the Director/Board of Directors.
Meet the Cherry City Derby Girls Board of Directors and Committee Chairs. We couldn’t do it without this team of dedicated volunteers!

Cherry City Roller Derby’s outreach efforts focus on local organizations that give back to our community that gives so much to us.
League members have come together to participate in various charity races, cleaning our Adopt-A-Street on D Street, and supporting groups including Law Enforcement for Youth, Marion-Polk Food Share, and American Red Cross’ Japanese Earthquake efforts. CCDG’s home teams have supported local charities like Liberty House, Marion Polk Food Share, Mid-Valley Women’s Crisis Services, Salem Friends of Felines, and Union Gospel Mission.
