Derby History

The Illinois Valley Vixens Roller Derby is the area's first all-female amateur flat-track roller derby league.  Founded in 2010, and first bouting in 2011 we are a do-it-yourself (DIY), skater-operated, non-profit roller derby league. The league is comprised of strong, diverse, and independent women.

Roller Derby is quickly building popularity all over the nation. We are proud to bring this fun, entertaining, contact sport to the Illinois Valley area! We are also excited to have the opportunity to help out in our community. In addition to organizing fundraisers, donating to charities, and volunteering at organizations in need of help, we look forward to promoting local businesses.

Our Mission is to bring strong, sexy, dedicated women from all walks of life together to play and participate in the sport of roller derby.
