Maple Mayhem (#604)

Team: Rotten Cherries

What is your favorite part of playing roller derby?

I love how there is something for everyone. It is a sport that brings people of all different types, ages and sizes together! It’s a fast paced challenging sport that is always evolving. Oh, and you get to hit people too, which is awesome!

List any previous athletic or club experience.

Pretty much zero. I was a figure skater in my early teens, and I’ve played a lot of winter sports (because, Canada!) but I’ve never been on a sports team before this.

What do you do when you are not skating?

I enjoy hiking, biking and swimming. We love to go camping and being outdoors.

Advice for new skaters/young girls?

My advice is to never give up. Even if it’s a crazy hard new skill, or just getting your 27/5, keep trying. It’s worth all the blood, sweat and tears in the end.
