SKATE TO THRILL:
THE THRILL RETURNS IN 2015
In 2014, the St. Chux Derby Chix hosted our inaugural Skate to Thrill tournament at The Wheel in Wright City. It was such a fun, successful even that we decided to do it again this upcoming season! We did switch venues. We are very excited to host Skate to Thrill 2015 at Matteson Square Gardens in St. Peters, MO, which is our normal venue for all our home bouts.
Skate to Thrill 2015 will feature 10 teams who will play three games each over the course of two days. We will be releasing more details about our Skate to Thrill tournament as they become finalized. Stay tuned!

What is your favorite thing about roller derby?
Basically, if I could spend my entire day on roller skates my life would improve about 5-7%.
You primarily play as a blocker. Tell us about your blocking style on the track. Do you have any particular strategies?
I am really solid on my skates, and I am not pushed around easily, so I like to focus on staying in front of the jammer, staying in a wall, stopping them, slowing them down, and just generally being in the way.
What other sports have you played and how have they helped you with roller derby?
I swam competitively, played rugby, and fenced in high school. Rugby taught me how to take and give a hit, although it is a bit different on skates. Fencing was a sport where you had to be both mentally and physically tough.
What's your favorite animal?
Bears. Especially polar bears.
What is your favorite thing to practice?
Recently, I have been feeling like my hockey stops are really getting better and I have started to be able to really use them in play, so recently I have really enjoyed any drills focusing on stops. This has not always been the case.
What is your least favorite thing?
Who is your biggest hero on the track?
Pixie is pretty awesome because she is small and mean. Whip is pretty awesome because she makes everything look easy. Ivy is pretty awesome because she hits hard and is super consistent. Flashy and GI are pretty awesome because they are so small and tough and wily. Basically, my whole team are my heroes.
Who is your biggest hero off the track?
I get inspired by ordinary people who do extraordinary things.
What is your favorite motivational quote?
"I have no idea what I'm doing, but I'm doing it really well."
