What was the turning point for your league to make it to Playoffs this season?
I think the games that kept our momentum going were playing Texas and London in last year's Playoffs. Although the final score was 90-100 points difference, we had some very tight scores at the half. For that first half we proved to ourselves that we can hang with the top teams....at least for the first half (lol). It boosted our confidence, kept the fire going to train hard, and continue making our team even stronger.
Who are this year’s Captains of your travel team?
Fancy and Jamsterella are our co-captains and have been for two seasons now:
Fancy is the team Mom. She keeps the team organized, is assertive when needed, loving, and can be a voice of reason. See....sort of like the Mom.
Jamsterella, being a previous team USA skater, has tons of skating experience. She remains cool in every game. She is the chill one that never gets worked up about anything. The Zen of the team.
Is your travel team doing anything new or special to prepare for Playoffs?
We all really try to buckle down before playoffs and tighten up our diet and increase our workouts. Most of us try and do this all year, but I think playoffs gives you that extra boost to do a little extra.
