What is your favourite part about being a Roller girl?  The sweat, bruises, and fans!

Any top tips for up and coming Derby Superstars? If you think being a rollergirl is just being cute in a pair of booty shorts and tube socks, don’t even try. It’s a real sport that takes a lot of sacrifice, sweat, blood, and pain. Every bit of it is totally worth it if you are competitive. Every skater out there has earned their spot, name and number. Stay focused on your skills and fundamentals, not what your derby name will be.
