First Year Things I Wish I Had Known: Demanda Riot

  • Skates are in men’s sizes.
  • Panty hose are not tights which are not leggings which are not sporty compression pants.
  • Fishnet track burn does look more interesting than just plain track burn, but FUCK IT ALL and wear thicker bottoms.
  • Hematomas are serious. Go to your doctor.
  • Find a good Sports Doctor and Physical Therapy Clinic.
  • Always, always do your PT. It’s like extra training. And show your teammates.
  • A personal trainer ≠ athletic trainer.
  • Change socks before practice.
  • Always take the stairs.
  • Squat pee in public restrooms.
  • Invest in a custom mouthguard.
  • Get fitted for a boot. Even if you purchase used. Make sure it’s the right size.
  • Always outskate your equipment. It doesn’t make you. You use it.
  • Always skate like you mean it.
  • Commit to yourself/ your team/ the process of learning.
  • Watch roller derby.
  • Pick up scrimmages are RAD.
  • TAKE ALL FORMS OF FEEDBACK. Don’t take it personally.
