My passion for roller-skating began in middle school when I spent almost every Friday and Saturday night at the roller-skating rink. After that, I didn’t put skates on again until June 2023 when I decided that I wanted to start skating again for fun and to get into better shape. While at The Rink, I saw a banner for the Thunder City Derby Sirens and looked up their Facebook page. I found that they had their fall recruitment program starting in August of 2023. I was hesitant, nervous, and super anxious; but very curious and interested – so I signed up.

While in the recruitment program, I found that roller derby was a complex sport that challenged you, and made you face your fears. I also found a sense of community like no other. I became a part of the Siren family and haven’t looked back since. Roller derby has changed my life in so many positive ways and has improved my physical, mental, and emotional health. I am so thankful that I joined the team, and I can’t wait to see where this adventure takes me.

We would love to meet you!
