Hey there Derbyverse, it’s Nox, welcome to the Weekly Roundup for April 1st - 8th, 2019

This week my new video for my sponsor Wicked Skatewear came out - watch and share with your newer skaters!

This edition of the Weekly is JAM-PACKED! Lots of news from WFTDA and JRDA, I added a lil section for all the latest derby podcast episodes because there were so many and this weekend had SO MANY GAMES (many of them are archived)! Scroll down to check ‘em out!

Shoutout to Bob Dunnell/Mr. Mcwheely for letting us use his awesome photos!

Our MVP of the week is Michaela Jean, who shared her concession story in a great video you need to see and share! And this week’s fundraiser highlight is for Derby Without Borders <3

We need to talk about: Update to the Roller Derby Se7ens/FIRS/World Skate story from last week

MVP of the Week: Michaela Jean

Michaela shared her concussion story and how it’s effected her life in this fantastic video below to bring awareness to the issue and help promote Pink Concussion, which is “ …the FIRST EVER non-profit organization with a highly personal and urgent mission to improve the pre-injury education and post-injury medical care for women and girls challenged by brain injury including concussion incurred from sport, violence, accidents or military service”.

Please take a few minutes to watch this video ——>

Fundraiser Highlight: Derby Without Borders

I’m a big big fan of Derby Without Borders! Their programs and projects are dedicated to remove barriers to accessibility in the sport of Roller Derby! Their work includes equipment distribution to leagues who have difficulty accessing equipment, travel fundraising and are even working on developing coaching resources!

You can support this group and the work they do by grabbing one of these awesome shirts!
