Favorite roller derby memory

My first ever bout last summer. I was so scared but it went really well & I felt so supported. I loved spending time with the team on the beach, playing corn hole & soakin up some sun.

Advice for prospective skaters

I think the best part about derby is that it takes people who aren't necessarily sporty or super competitive people (i..e. me a year ago) and exposes them to this whole new world. It can be really scary to jump into something new. You might feel like you haven't progressed as much as you actually have until you see people who are just starting out and are like "I couldn't do that either when I started!". Derby is so encouraging because you can see real improvement in yourself. It's a very uplifting environment and if you're interested you should definitely go for it!
