About the league

 

Franklin County Fury exists to provide an opportunity to build a positive relationship with everyone in the community through the sport of roller derby. We will demonstrate that people of all walks of life can be strong and independent, while managing a career, a personal life, and sports

 

Cherry and I wanted to bring our love for roller derby to our area. Cherry formally of McClean County Misfits in Bloomington, IL and I formally from Confluence Crush Roller Derby in Belleville, IL met through the derby community when she moved into the Franklin County Area. Together we wanted to give women the opportunity to build a positive relationship with other women while helping show them the confident strong women they can be. To often we become distracted by the common pressures of society and forget who we are. We become creatures of habit. Roller derby helps push individuals past those walls and reminds us that we all fall but the one’s that choose to get up and push harder together as a team will succeed. I from personal experience can say without roller derby in my life I would not be the woman I am today.
