The Cowboy Capital Rollergirls (CCR) is a flat track roller derby league based in Stephenville, Texas. Founded in 2011, the league consists of two teams which compete against teams from other leagues.

By May 2012, the league had twenty-five skaters.[1] In January 2013, it grew further, after the Brown County Debu'Taunts merged with Cowboy Capital.[2]

Cowboy Capital was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Program in January 2013,[3] and it became a full WFTDA member in September 2013.[4] This was described by league president Ashley Gill as "such a huge milestone not just for us but for our community".[5]

The league is entirely volunteer-run, and has raised large amounts for charity: around $10,000 in 2013.[6]
