Launching Roller Derby in Bennington County

Hi! My name is Bitches Bruze946236_503148209750461_226627532_n. I live in Pownal, Vermont and was the very first flat track roller derby skater in Vermont. When I started playing in 2007, there was no roller derby in Vermont. I commuted to play with the Albany All Stars and later helped to found the Hellions of Troy. I also skated and coached for Pioneer Valley Roller Derby (Northampton, MA) and most recently have been a skater, coach, and co-Captain with the Elm City Derby Damez (Keene, NH). With my husband, Will Jettison (currently with the Capital District Trauma Authority – Albany, NY) and my best friend Don’t Care Bear (Garden State Rollergirls,  New Jersey Hellrazors, and Elm City Derby Damez) I have played and coached roller derby around the United States and in 5 different countries. After all that, I want to bring roller derby to my home – the Southshire of Vermont – Bennington County.

At this time we don’t have a place to practice, but I’m working on several leads and the moment I find the right place, I’ll be working on getting our new league off the ground. The sky is the limit! There’s a lot of great energy and talent here in Bennington County and I’m looking forward to skating with my neighbors and introducing the derby world to the people who live and skate here.
