Illiana Derby Dames is an organization started to promote the sport of women’s flat track roller derby in Northwest Indiana, Northeast Illinois, and the South Shore area. The members of IDD are strong and dedicated women who train to the fullest of their individual abilities and respect their teammates and competitors. Our goal is to promote women’s strength and self- esteem and to create a sense of camaraderie and teamwork among our members .Our goal is to give all skaters and officials a voice in league decisions and operations and run a league that is truly “For the skaters, by the skaters.” We embrace women of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, and skill levels. Our skaters work to increase their skill through discipline, hard work, and focus. IDD is proud to carry on the tradition of roller derby, and strive to create a physically demanding sport that inspires women and girls to embrace their inner strength while entertaining fans and contributing to the good of our community through charitable donations and volunteer work.
