    Caitlyn Becomes Faye

    There is one reason I really love derby. I am typically a quiet, shy, non-competitive, non-athletic young lady. I have never been good at any sports and I have never been interested in any sports. I have always had a knack for roller skating, and my lower body strength is pretty...

    It's So Therapeutic

    I love derby.  The dress up, the athleticism, the alter egos, the looks you get when someone sees you give/take a good hit, or a good fall and getting right back up to it, getting to build a league out of nothing. I have met so many wonderful girls, and guys.  I have...

    I have a really hard time containing my

    negative feelings....there are little things that just **** me off about some of my teammates/coaches and I realize this is normal. Here are some of those things: 1. I hate the coaches' strategy for this next bout because it's extremely formulaic and it requires everyone to...

    Derby Is Life

    I'm 40+ years old and started playing derby last year.  Before that, my athleticism had been centered around the solitary sport of running.  I have never worked so hard or had so much fun in my life as I have playing derby.  Our league is fantastic - a very supportive group...

    Roller Derby Did Help Save My Soul

    I love Roller Derby... The athleticism, the friendships, the craziness and the adrenaline. I have been playing for 3 years total now and have had some experiences with drama that caused me to leave the sport for 2 years. I love the skating, the teamwork and the fun dressup...
