November Skater of the Month: Ginger Rocket, Shipyard Sirens

Wednesday, November 5, 2014

 Ginger Rocket I have played team sports for a good part of my life but it was not until I came to the Fog City Rollers in 2013 that I experienced the camaraderie, friendship, and solidarity that comes with being part of team as exceptional as the Shipyard Sirens.
From the moment I first met the women who would become my teammates and the men who would become my coaches, I became increasingly aware that there exists a level of dedication that far surpasses the boundaries of a typical recreational sport.   The dedication I am speaking of is not just a commitment to fitness, to attend practices, to push harder or to continually learn, but extends to the love of teammates.
Of course, I would be remiss if I did not speak of the dedication and support from our referees, league mates, nsos, photographers and of course, fans who share my passion for roller derby.  Without them, this sport would not be possible.
