This summer, the Derby United youth program had an influx of new skaters. This Saturday, August 24th, 2019, skaters new and old had their first chance to take the track united for the program’s first bout day since the merger taking on the North County Titans.
After much growth for both the Tremors and Spitfires youth teams, and just a few practices together since their merger, it was evident that the players formed an early bond and came together as a united team. This new group of young athletes played connected and have quickly become friends and teammates. It was exciting to have the support and familiar friendships with long time teammates combined with the energy and encouragement from new teammates.
This game was a good opportunity for the team to bond and work together, and a fun way to get to know everyone. The new skaters continue to feel welcomed into this new derby family and community, and are excited for the upcoming season with Derby United.
