Mid-State Sisters of Skate (MSSOS) is a women's flat track roller derby league based in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Founded in 2010, the league consists of two travel teams which play teams from other leagues. Mid-State is a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA).[1]

History[edit]

Mid-State was founded in June 2010, with practices starting following try-outs in August.[2] It played its first public bout in June 2011,[3] 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.[4]

The league was accepted as a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association Apprentice Programme in July 2012,[5] and became a full member of the WFTDA in June 2013.[6][7]

Starting in 2015, Mid-State hosts an annual tournament called Uff Da Palooza, attracting teams from Canada and the United States.[8] Uff Da Palooza is an official WFTDA Recognized Tournament.[9]
