Aalborg Roller Derby

Roller Derby er en kontaktsport på rulleskøjter for kvinder med ben i næsen! Der skal trænes, leges, kæmpes og hygges, når vi skal have de forskellige teknikker og ikke mindst konditionen på plads. Holdet i Aalborg startede i november 2012, og vi er nu (Juni 2016) 43 kvinder og en enkelt mand i alderen 19-42 år, som kommer fra hele Nordjylland: Aalborg, Sæby, Nibe, Hjørring, Aabybro og Ellidshøj. Vi har stort fokus på sammenhold på holdet, og ses også udenfor træning til f.eks. planlægningsmøder, fester, filmaftener m.m. Du er mere end velkommen til at joine os, hvis du er en kvinde over 18 år. Mænd må også gerne være med som ref eller NSO. Andre krav sætter vi ikke, så kom glad, lige meget om du er tyk, tynd, høj, lav, i form eller slet ikke i form. Hvis du bare har lysten til at lære det, skal det hele nok komme hen af vejen 🙂 Der er i øjeblikket lukket for indtag af skatere. Hold øje med facebook om vores næste fresh meat orientation. Hvis du allerede er roller derby pige, kan du skrive til os og høre om mulighederne for at skifte. Er du fuldstændig nybegynder på rulleskøjter, så opfordrer vi dig til at deltage i vores halvårlige Fresh Meat Orientation. Her er der meget fokus på grundlæggende teknik og kondition. Hvis du allerede har rulleskøjteteknikken på plads, så kontakt os gerne løbende og kom forbi og se os træne. Hvis du vil se mere om, hvad Roller Derby går ud på, kan du f.eks. se denne video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2W2b1WBmm4 Kontakt os endelig herinde med spørgsmål eller hvis du har lyst til at være med! Vi glæder os til at se dig på banen!

Oh my, its friday, give it up for Mette Valentiner Nielsen

Derby Name: Maggie Mischief

Number: 88

Position: Blocker

Played derby since: February 2014

Age: 28

What do you like about derby: The game requires physical, strategic and cooperative skills. I get to use all my talents 😀 And I have a great time with my friends in a supportive and fun community.

How did you discover derby: Read about it in an article on the train in 2012, I think. Somebody had left a copy of the newspaper Politiken with an article about Copenhagen Roller Derby. I knew right then that I wanted to be a part of Roller Derby. I found there was a team in Aalborg right after I got a job in the southern part Denmark. So after a year I returned to Aalborg to start Roller Derby (and move in with my boyfriend). The rest is history.

How many wheels do you own (singles): 32 that I use, 24 that I don't use

Favourite derby move: Banana!

What crime are you known for: Crossing the street even though there is a red light - I trust my eyes more than the system.

Derby crush/hero: Smarty Pants - she is amazing!

Favourite colour: yellow

Guilty pleasure: Watching '90s music videos on Youtube for hours

Funny fact: I am really good at balancing on a bicycle. Normally I don't put my feet down on the ground when I stop at a red light. Sometimes I get thumbs up from people who see me do it.

Favourite drink: Caipirinha

Favourite dance floor song: All of them - I love to dance
