Coaches: April Bloodgate and Esteemed Bun Bun
When asked what most excites them about the #20SkateTeen season at BAD, coaches April Bloodgate and Esteemed Bun Bun waste no time in saying: “our new team!”
While fans will recognize long-time Outlaws Esteemed Bun Bun (#42), Dreadzilla (#333) and Lethally Blonde (#45), the Outlaws are returning for this season with a cutting-edge group of transfers and rookie skaters, along with former hippies and zombies, ready to embody the new Oakland winged skull.
The numerous fresh faces to the team include Eris Jordan (#023), Reeba (#666), Bent Burns (#88), Blood Sweat and Ears (#9), Ripley Effect (#483) and Greer Factor (#805), many of whom have risen up from BAD’s Reckless Rollers program and BAD Beginnings Boot Camp.
Relocating from other leagues, the Outlaws gain multiple transfer skaters. From Sac City, they gain Snatch (#1062) and Ovary-Z (#6), while also scoring Steel City Derby’s BB Basher (#18) and Croydon Roller Derby’s Hieronymus Bash (#1929).
Skaters such as coach April Bloodgate (#23), Amy Avishay (#101), Dirty Lil Trick (#405), Illuminaughty (#701) and Hines (#57) join the gang from the Berkeley Resistance, while Spiller (#29) leaves her zombie green ShEvil jersey at the door.
The entire team has been working to build something new and powerful while also maintaining the spirit of Outlaw rosters past. In addition to building trust amongst each other, the Outlaws strive to learn and implement new strategies capable of decimating their opponents, all while having fun.
Their first bout of the season will be their fight for home-turf dominance against the Berkeley Resistance at BAD’s 4/7 Bout at the Palace of Fine Arts.
What will the season hold for BAD’s most eclectic mix of skaters? Nothing short of camaraderie, can-do attitude, tuxedo training shirts, and some crossfit reps–if coach April Bloodgate has her way.
