The best piece of derby advice you’ve ever been given… Worrying or being nervous won’t help you win and it won’t make you a better skater. Just do what you do and think about what you know.
The best piece of derby advice you’d like to give someone new… Don’t rush it. And don’t beat yourself up for not being the best right away. Derby success comes in stages and it comes slowly. First you get skate skills, then you learn the basics of play, then you start to figure out how to play with others. After you have all those components done, only then can you move on to mastering strategy and advanced strategy. Rome wasn’t built in a day!
Who is your derby idol? Why? Don’t have one.
What is the best derby bout you’ve ever watched? Why? Gotham vs Bay Area at 2013 champs
