JUNIOR ROLLER DERBY RULES! The Pivotstar team is busy behind the scenes, preparing for what could be one of our most exciting product launches to date! Coming later this month, we are so proud to be releasing…wait for it…A FULL JUNIORS LINE! Keep your dial tuned to this station for more details coming soon about new uniforms, hoodies, pants and shorts – just for junior derby girls! To celebrate this exciting event, for the entire month of June, we’re featuring interviews with inspiring junior players from all over the country.
This week, we’d like to introduce Morgan Mayhem and Haleylujah, sisters and players from Canada’s first junior league, the Greater Edmonton Junior Roller Derby Association. Morgan is also on the roster for Team Canada Junior Roller Derby. Morgan, 15, started playing derby when she was 10 after seeing the movie Whip It. Haley, 11, started out on the sidelines eagerly watching her sister play, then strapped on skates as soon as humanly possible.
We sat down with both of them to find out about what keeps them motivated, who they look up to and what’s in store for the future.
“If it’s not fun, then I’m obviously doing something wrong.” The best!
