I started speed skating at the age of 12. I loved the thrill of going fast in a sport that could be done individually or as a team. I continued skating until I was 17, I then took time away from the sport to go off to college. I continued to visit my local rink every few weeks over the next 6 or 7 years and out of the blue I was asked to start up a speed team.
I had never really thought about coaching until this point but am glad I had made the decision. I coach somewhere around 40 skaters currently and have also started competing again in the past few years. I enjoy teaching the youth how to be successful on and off the floor by teaching them the life lessons of working hard for something they truly want and helping them push through the barriers they face. It's the most rewarding feeling in the world to watch it all come together.
I got introduced to skating when I was around 5, and got into speed when I was 12. I've been competing at a national level for about 3 years now and I continue to work towards the goals I have set for myself.

My name is Floppy Joe and I've been skating roller derby for almost 5 years. I skate under both the JRDA and USARS rule sets. I'm currently a primary jammer for Indianapolis Junior Roller Derby, but I'm honored to say I was a member of JRDA Team USA East, a Great Lakes Junior Olympian, and a skater with the Midwest Allstars. I look forward to skating with the Race City Rebels when I turn 18. My favorite wheel by far is the Anabolix Moonstone.
I love all things roller skating! I am 20yrs old & currently team captain for Race City Rebels Men's Roller Derby. I've played derby for almost 10years & I've recently taken up aggressive quad skating & fallen in love with it! Roller skating has truly saved my soul <3
My favorite Anabolix wheel is the Sabres. I love their responsiveness on concrete & wood floors. The dual hardness provides the perfect amount of slide & grip which is super important for roller derby!

As a member of both Oil City Roller Derby and Chinook City Roller Derby. Barbie spends a great deal of time on the track playing and practicing. She always finds time to volunteer as a guest coach with GEJRDA, or mentor young skaters.
I started playing roller derby in 2011 with Indianapolis Junior Roller derby. I am currently the captain of the varsity team for Indianapolis. I participated in the JRDA AAU Junior Olympics in 2016 and in the 2018 Junior Roller derby World Cup. I've been playing USARS rules since 2017 and participated in the 2017 USARS Nationals. I venture into other disciplines of skating as well because of my love of skating. My favorite wheel is the Anabolix Ruby Heir on an aluminum hub. The Ruby's allow me to session skate, speed skate, as well as compete for roller derby on sport court, concrete, and wood.
My name is Sofia Hernandez. I am from Chicago, IL and am 17 years old. I have played roller derby for about 5 years and will compete in speed skating for the first time in the 2018-2019 competitive season.

I started roller derby in December of 2014 and had never been on skates before that. After watching a practice, I knew derby is what I needed in my life, and that I wanted to be a jammer. I tried out for Team USA East in September of 2017, and participated as a team member in the Junior Roller Derby World Cup the summer of 2018. I am entering my freshman year of high school, where I am participating in a pre-engineering program.
