Duchess Down Lo #411 – November Featured Skater

Move over Meghan Markle, there’s a new duchess in town. Our November featured skater may be a class act on and off the track, but watch out: There’s nothing ladylike about her hits!   What made you start derby? After each seeing an ad in the local paper about an upcoming bout, my husband and I coincidentally emailed each other about going. Watching the game, I knew immediately it was…

Jacked Up #21- September’s Featured Skater

We’re starting off the fall with this month’s featured skater, Jacked Up. Sneaky fast and with footwork so fancy she’s broken TWO pairs of skates, Jacked Up is not a skater you want to mess with! What made you start derby? I always wanted to try derby when I was younger but never had the time or opportunity. I kept seeing this group of kick ass chicks practicing every Thursday…

Anita Guinness #16oz – August Featured Skater

Hard-hitting, tough, fierce – Anita Guinness is a jammer’s worst nightmare on the track. But off the track, there’s no one friendlier than this month’s featured skater. A great addition to the team, we’re lucky to have her! What made you start derby? I was sharing a recruitment post from my cousin, Lucy Block, who was skating with Red Bank Roller Vixens at the time. A girlfriend had commented on…

Rebel Elle #12- July Featured Skater

Our July skater of the month is none other than Rebel Elle! A recent addition to the DJRD roster, she is dedicated, hard-working and always has great team spirit.  She is truly an “idol” – on and off the track!     What made you start derby?

Raven Rage #63- August Featured Skater

August is heating up with this month’s featured skater! Raven Rage is full of power on and off the track!   What made you start derby? A guy who I was playing roller hockey with was a roller derby referee. He said to me hey if you like playing roller hockey I have a sport I think you’re going to like and threw me a couple of free tickets to…

This fresh meat skater has made some GREAT strides over the past few months. We can’t wait to take the track with this skater who is always making us laugh! Check out our June Featured Skater  – Joy Z Devil!  What made you start derby? I had always been interested, but life got in the way.

Six Feet Thunder #72 – MAY FEATURED SKATER

Our May Featured Skater is certainly springing this Spring with the longest legs on the team. Six Feet Thunder, or Thunder, is just about to cross her first derbyversary, and we have loved having her as a Dirty!    What made you start derby?   I’ve wanted to play derby as long as I’ve known about it, like the past 8 or 9 years, but I didn’t know of any…

Madam Muerta #1102-April’s Featured Skater

Our April Featured Skater is all smiles on the track – even when she is giving someone a powerful block, and for that we love her! Madame Muerta is a Dirty Jersey Blocker as well as a board trustee. What made you start derby? I wanted to play roller derby since I was a little kid, but I didn’t know of any local derby teams until a couple of years…

C The Fury #241- February Featured Skater

Strong. Athletic. Female. Leader. In other words…C The Fury! Not one to shy away from a challenge on or off the track, Fury sets her sights on her goals and succeeds with a vengeance. They have no chance when Fury makes up her mind to prevail!!   What made you start derby? Growing up I was pretty fearless. I wanted to get some of that back. Escape. Distraction. What was the hardest…
