Our Angel of the Month for April is Conan the Vegetarian. From 2006 until the end of 2012, he spent his time on skates as a WFTDA Level 5 certified referee, then began taking on coaching roles for ACDG’S 2013 season. As head coach for the Hollywood Scarlets and a solid member of the Angel City Training Team, he’s been instrumental in skyrocketing the entire league to a new level of competition. He has inspired every skater to raise the bar with his dedication, support and positive nature both on and off the track. In addition to the countless hours spent improving our training program, he volunteers his time to help with track improvements, most notably the renovation of our warehouse floor. He literally keeps the league running from the wheels up, always happy to lend his help to repair broken skate parts. ACDG was bursting with pride when he was recently selected to be the assistant coach for Team USA! We are so honored to have him as a part of our derby family.
