Our Mission Statement


Illiana Derby Dames are an inclusive 501(c)(3) charitable organization that celebrates women’s strength, athleticism, teamwork and philanthropy through the sport of flat track roller derby.

The members of Illiana Derby Dames are committed to training to the best of their abilities in a competitive sport that promotes self-improvement, teamwork and camaraderie. Our goal is to empower every team member to not only embrace their strength through sport, but to also embrace their power to positively impact our community with volunteer work and charitable donations. We strive to give women a place to feel welcome in a fun-filled, action-packed environment. We work hard to honor our individuality while forming a tight, family bond. At each practice and bout, we challenge ourselves to step out of our comfort zone, overcome doubts and conquer new skills…we are IDD and we are IDD strong!
