We're back! The PUSH is ready to skate again for the 2015 season, starting with our opening bout on March 21st.
To honor our teammate Buzzkill Aldrin (who's retiring), anyone who comes to the bout dressed as Freddy Mercury, Darth Vader, a robot, or an astronaut, will be entered to win 2 free tickets to a future bout.
Interested in skating? Come try out. (More information to follow soon.)
Skater of the Month

Fun Fact: Freddie Mercury is my spirit animal
Quote from Buzz: I joined the Peoria Push Derby Dames in the April 2010 when the league first formed. I needed a good work out and enjoyed skating when I was a kid, so I gave it a go.
After 5 years, I can say I got more than a work out. I gained a nice butt and toned up muscles I didn't know I had, I can jump super high, shoot lasers out of my eyes, hit people legally, traveled to towns I didn't even knew existed on a map just to play a derby bout, had more than my fair share of pee-your-pants laughable moments with my team mates, and most importantly met some rad friends I would take a bullet for.
I'm retiring soon. I'm 36. I've had more fun than I ever had in my time with derby than most of my adult life.......
