It feeds my soul, makes me a better athlete, and enhances my life in and outside of derby. I've made some amazing friends. Now even my daughter, who learned how to skate at OWRD, is now skating derby too, so it's a bonding experience for the both of us. \r
You can make your experience at OWRD whatever you want it to be, casual skill learning, to working out a few times a week. scirmmaging, getting on a team, all stars, etc. All with no volunteer commitments and a very positive environment! We are here to help you learn skills and drills and respectfully know that everyone learns at their own pace. \r
Going through a divorce, losing 120 lbs, and not knowing where life will take me...derby is my anchor. It grounds me, challenges me, and I can't think about the outside world while I am doing it. Even though I'm working hard, I'm getting a break in a way. Love this league with all my heart!
