Eff’em Radio #1986

Name: Crystal Clear

Number: 1986

What’s the story behind your derby name? A very creative teammate came up with it. I let her know I love music and those close to me know I’m always singing something random. I also spend a lot of time in my car listening to the radio allowing me to call in and win prizes on a regular basis.

What’s the story behind your derby number? I panicked last minute and just chose the year I was born.

When did you join Renegade Derby Dames? Spring 2014. I had absolutely no experience. My first practice was mostly spent hanging onto the boards.

Why did you join? I saw RDD in the Alliston potato festival parade and it looked like so much fun.

What’s the best thing about Roller Derby? Everything. It’s an amazing time with some amazing ladies and it’s a great workout.

What is your most memorable derby moment? Everyday is an “aha” moment for me as I have so much to learn, but my most memorable moment so far was my first home bout, near the end of the game I was given the opportunity to jam and I jammed my heart out. I knocked down opposing skaters and had the entire arena cheering.

What is your derby goal/dream? To improve just a little every practice and have it look like I know what I’m doing out there.
