Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 51 People

    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...

    Roller Derby Saved My Soul!

    When I moved back to Cali from AR, I was a mess. Heavily dosed with tons of medication (anti-depressants, anti-anxiety) I was living an anti-life. I went to a Fourth of July event and saw some kick *** girls in a booth ~ Roller Derby Girls. I had seen the movie “Whip it...

    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...

    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...

    Caitlyn Becomes Faye
