November 2016 Skater Of The Month - Christicuffs


Position within the league? Head NSO


How long have you been with the league? 4 years


How did you choose your derby name? My name is Christi--it was pretty easy.


How did you become affiliated with the league? My daughter, Peaches N Screams, joined the juniors team 5 years ago. I was always around, and derby looked like fun so I went to a couple boot camps and joined the QK. I learned really fast that there weren't enough hours in the day for me to both learn to skate and learn to play derby on top in addition to having a job and family. Part of the QK training was learning to NSO. Many years ago I kept the scorebook for basketball and baseball, so derby paperwork appealed to my love of paperwork, so I joined Team Dazzle.


Do you have a spirit animal? I'm a cat person. A lazy housecat person.


Favorite derby moment(s) to date? There have been many, but my favorite is probably being on what's reported to be the first all-female NSO crew at this year's division playoffs in Columbia, SC.



What advice would you give to someone who wants to become involved in roller derby by volunteering? Do it--you're needed, and if your league is anything like mine, they're going to love you.
