SFV Roller Derby would be nothing without our hardworking officials, both our onskates Referees and our dedicated Non-Skating Officials. Throughout the year, the Training Team would like to honor an official in recognition of their contribution to the league.
Honoring KILLher LIZARD QUEEN
How did you decide on your derby name?
It's kind of a mash-up of my nickname and my favorite musicians. My nickname is "Killer", then my favorite artists are Jim Morrison from The Doors and Freddie Mercury from Queen. Jim Morrison was known as the "Lizard King" but to make it fair to Mr. Mercury, it became Lizard Queen.
How did you get started as an official?
After I started derby, the trainers mentioned that NSOing would help us understand the sport. Honestly, it has helped me out very much in understanding gameplay and rules.
Something you wished skaters knew or realized?
Roller derby is not easy. You must be patient as hell to understand both the skills and the rules! Be open minded!
When you're not on the track, where can we find you?
1) At my job, 2) Sleeping, or 3) Drinking with Ramona Plowers
