Angel City Derby is kicking off the 2017 season with a robust adults program now in its 11th year, and a growing Juniors program that we have big goals for! To celebrate the bright future of 2017, we want to honor a hardworking Junior skater for our January Angel of the Month, a young lady who is dedicated to being well rounded and hardworking both on and off the track! Our Angel of the Month for January is Trix-Z!
Trix-Z is 12 and skates for the Blockbusters with the Angel City Junior Derby program. Trix-Z found derby when she was 8 year olds, after seeing the LA Junior Derby Dolls skate during a Baby Doll Brawl. She quickly became enthusiastic about playing and joined the Junior Derby Dolls, skating for the Junior Varsity Brawlers home team. One of her skating highlights was being on the Junior Varsity Brawlers when they won the junior league championship in 2014. She joined ACJD in May 2015.
Trix-Z is in 7th grade at an environmental magnet middle school. Her favorite subject is art and she is very proud of her 7:25 mile-run in PE class. Roller derby isn;’t the only thing Trix-Z excels at, she is also a competitive gymnast, training at least four nights a week and competing at level 5. She recently won a medal in vault at the Southern California North State Gymnastics Meet.
Trix-Z loves roller derby because she loves to skate fast, apex jump and be part of a team. She truly values her amazing coaches and teammates and is proud to be a member of ACJD.
Come see Trix-Z skate along with our other ACJD skaters at our season opener on February 18, 2017 at Culver City Veteran’s Auditorium.
