What was the turning point for your league to make it to Playoffs this season?
Our victories have been in the journey: In developing new talent, breaking old habits and building new skills. The new people are filling big shoes, but they’re carving a space for their unique talents.

Has your league experienced any retirements, transfers or injuries in the past year that have made a substantial difference in your league’s play and performance?
Our team did experience retirements, relocations, or long term injury breaks since the last Play offs namely: Lois Carmen Dominator (LCD), Dixie Kicks, Craisy Dukes, and Bad Person. But we’ve also gained several new skaters who are doing very well: Planitz Collide, Stevie Nixher (transfer), Amy Rock, America Ferocious (Transfer), Hardcore, and Womanimal.

Additionally, many skaters on the team are getting opportunities outside of our team on World Cup rosters:
Maya Mangleyou - Team Canada
Lil Paine - Team Ireland, Captain
Womanimal - Team Switzerland

Does your league have a motto, or words that it lives by?
“Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme, get on up, it’s derby time.” It means we stay focused, take ownership, are courageous, and bring intensity. It means we appreciate the moment, and stay in it because thousands of skaters out there would do anything for what we’re worked for, and to appreciate and not take for granted the opportunities we have that millions of women do not have. We’re skating for each other, our league, city, country, and all women.

Real. Strong. Athletic. Revolutionary.
