MVP of the Week: Maurine Filip


I’m a big fan of Maurine for her #MentalMonday series and other great work in the sports/performance psychology of derby (loved her episode of Off the Track) but today I want to celebrate her becoming the first female president in the history of the Swedish Skating Association [Svenska Skridskoförbundet (SSF)]!

🎉Congrats, Maurine!🎉

Fundraiser Highlight: CaiRollers to South Africa

After years of hard training, tears and blood, building a team through personal efforts and expenses, playing local, regional and international bouts, we are ready to take over the African Continent and play the first EVER African Roller Derby Bout! We are ready! We are trained! We have our skates cleaned and shirts printed! We just need YOUR help to fly us to South Africa to fulfil our dream and take the game to a whole new level in Africa!
