Stars On The Rise 2014 – Rebellion Roller Derby

Updated: March 20, 2014

We’re profiling all of the teams that will be competing in the Heartland Series 2014. We’ve asked them to highlight the skaters hoping to make an impression in the Series and tell us a bit about themselves, to introduce our new teams and welcome back our friends from 2013. Today’s stars, kicking off their third tournament campaign, Rebellion Roller Derby!

How was 2013?

Last year was a huge experience for Rebellion! we’d come 2nd in the original Heartlands and knew that the increase in teams for 2013 would mean an increase in competition and we were looking forward to the challenges. We learned a huge amount in terms of how we play and where to better ourselves, as well as acquiring some exceedingly skilled skaters and increasing our team. The tragedy for our team at the beginning of the year was with the passing of Karen, but the team continues to embody her attitude and enthusiasm and we’re taking that through to 2014 – and onwards.

Jammer To Watch – Dew DropHer

One look at Dew and you’ll know you’re dealing with one threatening skater. Fearless, fast, powerful, determined and tenacious, Dew doesn’t shy from a challenge and has the experience and skill, as well as the thirst, to overcome any competitor. Even while jamming, Dew has the confidence to guide the team on track and ensures they know what she wants, where she wants them and complete play strategy to ensure maximum points scored.

Blocker To Watch – CatFace KillHer

Stable and strong, Catface utilises the pack wisely while using her devastating blows and track-clearing moves to make way for the jammer. Catface ensures carnage to exhaust the opposing team and proves an unpassable wall. Any attempt to knock Catface out of the way will be met with a counter-block but don’t be fooled – her sights are on the team and the jammer, making this one blocker you can’t distract.

Rookie To Watch – Feisty Frampton

Always seeking to improve herself, Feisty completely dedicates herself to Roller Derby in every way possible, embodying her tenacious and determined attitude that is also reflected on track (with lethal results). Fast and relentless, Feisty carries on until she gets what she wants and springs back from any challenge to overcome it with.
