Most Memorable experience:
Most memorable experience off the top of my head would be when I went scuba diving in Florida. It was extremely relaxing and it was cool to see all the tropical fish, hold sea urchins, and starfish. I also got to explore some small ship wrecks which had always been a dream of mine.
I wanted to play rugby and before I could look into it my brother and I saw a sign on the back of a car advertising the Marietta Derby Darlins. My brother told me I should try it and I figured I would sense I had done figure skating when I was really young. I went to a newbie night and figured out that all those skating skills were gone but something about skating again made me so happy that I never looked back.
Advice for new skaters:
I would say just give it a shot. It’s a hard sport but it’s a very rewarding sport. It’s not for everyone but you won’t know if you have the derby bug or not unless you try it out. Also buy good gear and a nice helmet!
