What was that “one moment” when you knew playing derby was the right thing for you?

Immediately after my first scrimmage. I was so lost and unsure but everyone was so encouraging that I knew I was in good hands at VCDD. Not to mention, it was FREAKING EXHILARATING!

What’s something you’ve learned playing derby that has translated into another part of your life?

I’ve learned in derby that your gonna fall and make mistakes, you just have to get up and keep going. Just like in life, there will always be setbacks but as long as you don’t give up the sun will rise again.

It's easy to stay motivated to continue to play derby when things get tough because derby is the place I can forget my worries and just skate it out.
