January 1 - 7 🐢
Hey there Derbyverse! Happy first Weekly of the year!
2018 was a big year for me. I made over 30 videos, produced 51 Weekly Roundups, wrote 7 blogs, started my Patreon, grew State of Skate to over 2,000 members, got sponsored by Wicked and launched my derby merch brand, Nox Skate Co.! Here’s a recap of work and life from this year! Can’t wait to see what 2019 brings!

MVP of the Week: ZebRoar of Hereford Poison Berries Junior Roller Derby
JRDA's very own ZebRoar of Hereford Poison Berries Junior Roller Derby has been awarded the 2018 Sunshine Pride Sporting Achievement of the Year Award in the United Kingdom!
Zeb had a very busy year, officiating high-level derby all around the world in 2018. Not only did she officiate both JRDA Championships and JRDA World Cup in Pennsylvania, but she also wore the stripes for juniors exhibition bouts at the Women's Roller Derby World Cup in Manchester and the MRDA European Qualifiers.
ZebRoar's contributions to junior derby extend well beyond her officiating duties on the track. She serves as a mentor to other UK junior officials, and is heavily involved in the training curriculum for her Hereford home league skaters.
