About Woo...

Why did you start roller derby?

Hmm, good question. I had recently moved to Birmingham and needed to make some friends and find a way to stay active. Prior to derby, I mostly just worked every day and hung out with my cat, Luna (have I convinced you that I'm super cool yet?). I'm may be the least competitive person ever but I love team sports and derby looked interesting. I'm also a huge fan of girl power and bruises. I started because I wanted to try something that put me completely outside of my comfort zone and to be around a group of strong women. I love environments where women uplift one another and all of the other cheesy feel good stuff and derby encompassed all of that for me!

What other sports did you play?

I grew up playing soccer and on the swim team.

About Claw...

Why did you start roller derby?

Loved skating. Just wanted to skate.

Best/Favorite roller derby memory?

Really so many! Carpool sing-a-longs, favorite places to eat as we travel to away bouts, traditions we have made, making new friends, all the tournaments (but especially World Cup!) and getting to be more involved with my community here at home! But probably what I am most proud of currently is getting to play derby in France this past November! It was a real honor to play with such talented ladies (most of whom play for their country's all-star league).

Most embarrassing roller derby memory?

Also, really so many! Probably one of the most embarrassing is in my first international game ever. Let's just say a girl from Norway (that I thought I was about to lay out) put me on back. It's not really that bad, but it was on live feed for the world to see and can still be found on youtube, with announcer commentary. Can't help but laugh when I see it!

My first bout was...

Was against Dixie Derby Girls. One of my favorite (humbling) photo comes from that game.

Jammer, blocker, pivot?

Like to play them all!

Name some of your personal heroes!

There are a lot of strong role models currently and in history I admire (and could list!), but I am continually impressed by the everyday heroes I see in this community. And I am so lucky to call some of them my family, friends, and teammates! It is a very rare thing for any one person to achieve greatness on their own.

Charity or Organization(s)?

Being with TCR I have gotten to work with so many wonderful organizations! This year I am very excited to work with Girls Rock Birmingham!

If I weren't in Birmingham, I'd be...

The list is long and I'm still discovering places! But probably somewhere in Europe.

About Rach...

What brought you to roller derby?

I was spoiled in college by being on a team, having the best friends and also staying in shape because of both. So years later, after my daughter was born, my husband actually found derby for me.

Love watching gymnastics and the Olympics

What's your favorite play?

I have yet to see a play or musical that wasn't great

Where is one of your favorite places in Birmingham?

Railroad Park is a favorite spot because it's a free place for people to gather and play. Aaaand it's skatable.

Favorite roller derby memory?

Playing Norway with my team! Closest feeling I'll ever get to being in the Olympics. I've also traveled overseas for fun, practiced and stayed with with other derby girls.

Prefer jamming or blocking?

Jammer! I like to block but mostly told to go jam out

About Nancy...

Why did you start roller derby?

I showed up at a recruitment on a whim really, just to see what it was about. After seeing the dynamics of the people and the gratification of the workout I was hooked. I can't say enough good things about the people and the automatic team atmosphere whether you've been skating a while, or it's been 15 years since you put on skates, you are accepted as a person and encouraged to do your best. If you are struggling with a skill there's always someone to help you work it out. The work out is grueling, but so satisfying as you watch yourself get better every time you put on skates. I could go on and on, but if you're interested all I can say is try it for yourself. You won't be disappointed!!

What other sports and activities grab your attention?

Baseball, MMA, PC gaming, Running (5K's), Sewing/Crafting
