The Long Island Roller Rebels (LIRR) are a roller derby league based on Long Island, New York. Founded in 2005,[1] the league currently consists of two teams, and two mixed teams which compete against teams from other leagues.

The league was initially known as the "Rockabetty Bruisers",[2] and was aided in its early days by the Gotham Girls Roller Derby.[3] They were early members of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association, competing in the East Region.[4]

The league's mixed teams have participated in interleague bouts against teams across the east coast of the United States, reaching as far as Maine.[1] By 2009, their intraleague bouts were attracting around 350 to 400 fans to their regular venue, in Old Bethpage, New York, many of whom had previously watched banked track games.[5] Their 2010 season featured a tournament involving twelve teams from New York State,[6]

In 2011, the Roller Rebels competed in the East Coast Derby Extravaganza,[7] and also played a bout at the Men's Roller Derby Association Championships, which were held in their Old Bethpage rink.[8]
