At Team Scotland Roller Derby, we are proud to be part of this community. We have seen how our athletes have grown not just as skaters, but also as leaders, advocates, and role models. They have broken down stereotypes and barriers and have shown that anyone can be a derby player, regardless of their size, shape, or background. They have also helped raise awareness about issues such as mental health, gender equality, and LGBTQ+ rights.
