Introducing Dolly Party On
Dolly Party On, while not new to derby, is new to the Outfit. She transferred over from another league in the area last fall and is a fantastic addition to our league. Below is a little bit about why she joined derby:
I have wanted to play roller derby since I was a teenager. I remember seeing a documentary about it and thinking that was totally the type of woman I wanted to be when I grew up. All of the women just seemed so sure of themselves, and totally badass on skates. I had no idea about junior derby otherwise I think I would have been playing way sooner.
It wasn't until after having kids that I realized how badly I needed an outlet and to spend some time with adults! I went to my very first boot camp with the Illiana Derby Dames, November of 2016. My youngest wasn't even a year old! I have NEVER felt more out of shape in my life. Those first few weeks of boot camp are a blur of sore muscles and bruised tailbones. But no matter how hard it was, I was totally hooked!!
I played for my previous team, Illiana Derby Dames, for 2 seasons. At the end of our last season I felt really intrigued to check out the Outfit. I joined after talking with a former team mate who had also transferred. I really wanted to transfer to a more competitive team and grow as a skater.
I feel like in these first few months I have already learned so many new things. I'm so excited for this season with The Outfit, I can't wait to kick ass with my new family!
