The Mid-State Sisters of Skate (MSSOS) is a roller derby league based in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Founded in 2010, the league consists of two travel teams and two home league teams.

Mid-State was founded in June 2010, with practices starting following try-outs in August.[1] It played its first public bout in June 2011,[2] and by 2013 was attracting up to 200 fans to each bout. However, it suffered a setback in April 2013 when its winter practice venue closed.[3]

The league was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme in July 2012,[4] and became a full member of the WFTDA in June 2013.[5][6]
