Wow Jen, your daughter sure looks like you.

We told our "little girl" when she wanted to try out in Charlotte that we paid way to much for that beautiful smile of hers for that. However, she is still considering it.

 

 

Don't worry dad, they wear mouth guards.   :mrgreen:

What is your team's name?

Is this a flat track league?

It's flat track. I'm invited into the red tape training program, after three months I can skills assess into green tape level which is where they'll teach more contact skills and further rules and fine points of the game. I suspect that will be when I REALLY start to get bruises. :lol: After that I can skills assess again to become draft eligible. We were told not to expect to be drafted to a team- it's very competitive and the women are very very good, but there's a C Team for more recreational athletes that I'll most likely end up on- they still do bouts and whatnot. From what the coaches were talking about- to be on one of the 4 home teams or 2 traveling teams I would have like no other life outside of derby, and I really like my life! Not really ready to give up music and all my friends. :lol:

 

Boston Massacre and Boston B Party are the traveling teams, and there are 4 home teams, 2 training teams, 1 inter league team, and 1 WFTDA all star travel team.

 

If I really wanted to be on a team I could change leagues, there's Providence and Taunton, a few others around here, and all the ladies I have talked to just out skating for fun say that the women trained in Boston end up being way more advanced than the other leagues. But who knows, that's what was just told to me.

If you match against Albany out here, definitely let me know.  They have a band play before and during the breaks. I'll try and get the DeadBeats on that match! :dance:

Ms. Kitty just said, "Of course she'll make it. She's Wit." :)

Next thought in my head was:

"Now, say my name."

"Ginger Snap."

 

"You're god damn right."

:lol: Thanks for the support everyone. I'll find out tomorrow if I'm in the next level, I sort of feel like it could go either way and it's totally fine if I didn't pass into the next level there are a couple specific skills I know I need to work on and i keep working on my endurance. If not I have another shot in July and can keep working at it. It's super fun and the women are just incredible, and heck, it's super fun! I keep reading derby articles from all over the country and I feel really grateful and happy that I am in this particular league- apparently some leagues can be full of challenging people to deal with- but our league is really supportive and kind and the vets want to see you succeed and are so helpful- a lot like the folks here only we're on rollerskates. Holy shite I'm exhausted. Pretty happy overall with my performance today I feel like I nailed a few things that have been a real struggle for me and I completed every drill even when I felt like throwing up all over the track. :lol:

So I just got the letter and I am totally stoked to say that I I did really really well in some things that were super challenging for me- and while I haven't passed *yet* I will be able to assess in July the weekend BEFORE Vibes so I will be in tip top shape and practice to get it the next go round and then celebrate and party with all of you PROPER. Endurance. I can do that! :smile:

 

And super stoked that a couple girls that I was privately rooting for have passed into the next level. Being by their side and knocking hips with them on the regular is motivation enough to reach my goals. :gingersnap:

 

I have Fay...th.  Will have anyway. :devil:

Realistically probably not, but they seem to rotate everyone during the scrimmages, so I'll have a taste. I need to work on my speed control big time.
