Thankfully, I developed an aptitude for skating early in life and spent years of my childhood playing street hockey on skates.
A few of my friends were into derby for years as NSOs, spectators, and skaters, but I never really understood the appeal of it. I kept saying that it looked like something I wanted to play, not necessarily watch. During the summer of 2012 I noticed that my usual workout routine was getting to be bland so I wanted to add a new activity to liven it up. I remembered how much I liked to skate as a kid so I decided to put my money where my mouth was and try playing derby. I got geared up, passed PFM’s foundation skills class, and have been at it since.
