Congratulations to the August 2017 Skater of the Month….
Spanky started with SCR at its inception meeting in December of 2005. She is our last remaining original league member! As Spanky may have told you (because she brags about it often), she created roller derby. In her 11 years, she has held many position including head coach, vet coach, bird coach, merchandise coordinator and bench staff for the Bruisers & Punishers. Spending the majority of her derby c...areer as a feared blocker, she is a utility player and an excellent jammer.
Skaters have always feared her on the track. Birds that she coached worshiped her. Spanky has had a hand in teaching just about every SCR skater how to play roller derby. Whether that was coaching them herself, or having those she has taught before take the reigns in teaching our newest crop.
Spanky definitely embodied the “roller derby girl” persona adopted during the rebirth, but as the sport progressed, so did she. Never abandoning her quick wit and playfulness, she’s dedicated herself to becoming mentally and physically fit off the track, which only transferred to her ability ON the track.
During her process of growing with this intense sport, she’s always been a wealth of knowledge by answering questions and offering advice to anyone who would look up to her. As a volunteer on both our Board and Coaching staff, Spanky always offers fair and knowledgeable insight, always trying to move SCR into efficient and effective ways to function even more successfully. This season alone, she has implemented a fresh structure for our Coaching staff, as well as continuing to create new and exciting merchandise for our league and fans.
“Spanky-One of a kind. Unlike any person I've ever met. Hilarious, talented, badass sparkly mofo. She will seriously be missed as a coach, skater, and friend. I am honored to have gotten to spend time with her and get to know her.”
“Beast on the track. Merch money making magician. Head coaching badass. I don't love her at all!”
“Sharp tongued and sassy. Spanky brought a hilariously dramatic yet competitive flair to the sport of roller derby that I have never seen before. Rare indeed. I will miss her.”
“She invented roller derby. She is SCR.”
“I have tons of nice things I could say but I'll keep it simple- She's the best ever ❤️ come back to coach all the time kthanksbye.”
“One of my favorite human beings. Forever teammate and friend. I DONT LOVE HER AT ALL.”
We will miss you, Spanky. Thank you for all that you have done for our league.
JULY 2017: CLUELESS #916
Congratulations to our July 2017 Skater of the Month...
Not only is she doing a killer job learning Bout Production, but she's the smiliest motherf*@k&r we've ever met! Clueless loves everything derby & is so involved in the league! She does so much work to prep our bouts, take care of business and handle the behind the scenes madness - and she is always cheerful on the track! When she is not skating she is NSO'ing. All of these things are done with smiles and giggles.
Clueless is a an extraordinary addition to our league; she is ALWAYS willing to help. Often taking on the lead role as Bout Coordinator for games in effort to help Charlie - and basically if you can make Charlie happy, then you are a special person with a special gift.
She has grown as a skater, unafraid to take on blocking or jamming, and continues to improve every day. Sac City Rollers is super lucky to have her, we love her as a league-mate, and we thank you deeply for all that you do!
"Clueless gives 110% of herself at practice and outside of practice. She does an amazing job helping with game stuff. I don't think a Charlie would survive without her help. (PS - I'd know - I'm Charlie)"
JUNE 2017: BOSS TACO #619
Boss Taco is tireless cheerleader for Sac City Rollers. She and her family have been devoted to the league since she first joined.
A skating super mom & nurse, not to mention an awesome Secretary two years running AND recently voted Bruiser Co-Captain by her peers!
Taco is an SCR gem; always working hard behind the scenes and on the track to ensure our success. Such an amazing person!
Little known fact, she is also a great on-track banana whisperer ;) She does all the things and always has a positive attitude. One we definitely couldn't do without.
She's the best, duh, and around awesome ️ We appreciate you Taco!

She is 100% dedicated to derby. A patient and knowledgeable coach for Juniors and Birdies; her though-ut explanations and willingness to show an example drills until we nail it are so appreciated. She's a fierce utility player for the Punishers - horrible to jam against, an expert level Treasurer, and an awesome volunteer. You can text her a lot and she'll always answer your questions. A true asset to the league with a cool, superhuman, megaphone voice. We all enjoy skating with her is a pleasure to work with on league activities. Basically a tough as shit, force to be reckoned wit, ool freakin lad, ha takes care of ll the ehind the scenes stuf. We appreciate her so much and are extremely lucky to have her. Love us some no nonsense Red! BECAUSE DUH.
