Skate Dawg – Head Coach


Vancouver, WA

 League responsibility?

Head Coach

What do you do when you’re not skating?

When I’m not coaching SCRG, or skating with Bridgetown Roller Derby, I enjoy running, cooking, working on cars, playing music and spending time with my wife, Trouble Axle.

 What made you decide to join roller derby?

After spending years as a fan and watching my wife play, I decided to give it a try myself.  My enjoyment of strategy and technique in sports led me to want to try my hand at coaching.

What keeps you motivated to keep skating?

I like to exercise, and derby’s just about the most fun workout I’ve found. I also love the camaraderie and culture of roller derby.  AND I can be pretty competitive.

What is the best advice you would give someone who wants to join derby?

Skate, skate, skate.  Whenever, and wherever you can.  And bring your friends.
