I am a coach for NEOjr Roller Derby and I linked up with the Akron Roller Derby Adult league last year, but have been actively involved with the Junior league since my daughter started skating; she will be 10 soon. I love the sport, because we are everything about Family, teamwork and we come in all shapes and sizes and we never turn away anyone. You do not need any types of skills to play and you get so much out of it. Watching my girls learn and get to do what they love is amazing, but the thing that hurts the most is when they can not play do to finances and not having the gear that they need. That is what I am hear for is to try and raise funds for gear and travel expenses so my girls can keep doing what they love! Any little bit helps! We are a non profit and we pay everything out of our own pocket so keeping our sport alive does get rough but it is what we love and we will always find a way!
