The Sick Town Derby Dames (STDD) is a roller derby league based in Corvallis, Oregon. Founded in 2008, the league consists of a single team which competes against teams from other leagues.

The league was founded by Brick Wallace and Magic Hips, two skaters with the Emerald City Roller Girls who wanted a league closer to their home town.[1] It played its first home bout in September 2009, against the Lava City Roller Dolls.[2]

Sick Town accepted into the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in December 2009.[3] By early 2012, it had enough skaters to host an intraleague bout,[4] and in June 2012 it was accepted as a full member of the WFTDA.[5]

Sick Town now has enough skaters to support two teams: the charter team, the SMASH Unit, as well as a B team, the Dis-Orderlies.
