Port City Roller Derby would like to give individual shout-outs to our members who have made this league what it is. Each member has answered a few questions about themselves for you to get to know them better.
Zero Flux came to us as a brand new skater when the season began in 2014. She quickly advanced in demonstrating skating skills, and worked hard through her training to help the Sirens win their season opener. Zero Flux amazed her teammates with her determination on the track, and she is known for already being upright before she actually hits the floor during a fall! As she relocates and leaves New York next week, We at PCRD want to recognize her amazing athleticism and dedication to our league. We’ll miss you “Tosh-Oh”! Please stay in touch!

When did you join PCRD and Why? I began playing derby in the beginning of the 2014 season, when I felt I didn’t have a lot of control over things in my life. I wanted to do something that I could bust my butt at and not be told I couldn’t go further if I worked harder.
Favorite Derby Memory: Knocking Jaded Glory on her butt in practice, like 3 times. J
Likes: Books, hiking, and Snickers Ice Cream bars dipped in Honey Mustard.
Dislikes: The sound of whistling and having wet feet.
Advice for new skaters/members: You spent a lot of money on your derby gear, love it, trust it, and fall….ALOT!

And finally, here are some kind words about Zero Flux:
“I’ve known Zero Flux for about three years both professionally and as a derby sister. She has a great sense of humor, and is one of the most athletic women I know. I hope she continues to follow her derby dreams after her move.”… Jaded Glory
