Midwest Derby Divas (MDD) was formed in September 2010 by MOSH Spitt (Amanda Hayenga) and Anita Painkiller (Andrea Wakeman) who had the desire to bring the sport of Roller Derby to the Morrison area. League organizers plan to make the Divas a nonprofit group and organize matches to raise money for good causes. But there is a lot of work ahead. Vets and Newbies will work together to master the skills and pass tests as required by the Women's Flat Track Derby Association to play sanctioned matches.
MDD's mission is to provide an empowering opportunity to build a positive relationship with the community through the sport of roller derby. They will demonstrate that women of all walks of life can be strong and independent, while managing a career and a personal life, and can excel in an otherwise male dominated sports world. The league is a nonprofit, charitable organization whose main focus is the empowerment of women and networking for the better of the community.
