"You don't look like a roller derby girl" is typically the first thing I hear when someone finds out I play. In reality, roller derby embraces diversity and doesn't have one "look." It is quite interesting meeting all the different people that play all over the world! My league, Tampa Roller Derby, spends a lot of time together, not only at practices and games, but at events to fundraise, promote, and to recruit new members. Playing competitively is demanding of both time and money, but I couldn’t imagine not playing. Being an adult can be difficult; getting to skate hard and hit your friends at practice really relieves the stress of the day!
