In August 2011, the Prairieland Punishers were established in Decatur, IL with the dream of becoming a 501c3 organization and a full-fledge member of Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby (WFTDA). After four years of building and growing, both of these dreams came to fruition in the 2015 season. We are proud of the process we have made over the last four years to become a league where the sport of roller derby is taken seriously and our commitment to our community is a primary focus. Not only are we proud of the women of our league, but the fans and volunteers that have made this possible. Without the support of the community, we would not be able to compete in a sport that we love and adore. So thank you to all who consider themselves a Prairieland Punisher – whether on or off the track!!!
