2019 BAD of the Months

January 2019

Throughout her tenure at BAD, Sinna has done an incredible amount of work for the league. Even after her retirement, Sinna is volunteering her time as our WFTDA Committee Manager. Sinna is always available to answer questions about leage administration, and it seems like there’s nothing she doesn’t know about the ins and outs of Bay Area Derby. Thank you Sinna for all you do!


February 2019

Legs leads many of our All League practices and puts a lot of effort into posting practice plans in advance and giving participants homework to get their mental game ready. BAD skaters love Legs’s positivity and enthusiasm. During this rainy season, Legs has also been a true rain abatement hero. Thank you Legs for all you do!

Snakes Anna Plane
MARCH 2019

Snakes has done amazing work for the Creative side of Marketing and is always pleasant to work with. Even when asked for assets last minute, she always gets them done quickly, AND they look like FIRE. Snakes has also been super helpful during our Reckless Camps and Tryouts, and she’s a knowledgeable and thoughtful trainer. Thank you Snakes for all you do!

Butt'N MashHer
APRIL 2019

Butt’N MashHer is doing a fantastic job coaching the San Francisco ShEvil Dead as well as coaching all league practices, all while also coordinating Bay Area Derby’s busy Marketing and PR Committee. Despite being injured and unable to skate at the moment, she continues to bring positive energy, enthusiasm, and well thought out plans for every practice. Thank you Butt’N for all you do!


MAY 2019

Psi came to Bay Area Derby at the start of this season and has taken on the big job of being our WFTDA Committee Manager. She patiently wades through the WFTDA forums where she picks out the most pertinent pieces of information and conveniently serves them to all our league members. We are proud to have Psi represent BAD in the greater derby community. Thank you Psi for all you do!

JUNE 2019

During her time with BAD, Miss Fists has played an integral part in the Sponsorship committee, helping raise funds for BAD while making fundraisers so fun that they also work as team building events for our league members. Fists is the kind of person who will step up and take on any role that is needed to help the league run, even when it’s something people might not notice. Always welcoming and encouraging to new skaters, Fists makes people feel at home in our league. Thank you Fists for all you do!

Leathally Blonde
August 2019

Lethally Blonde has been with BAD for a long time and has mastered the art of both being a wonderful leaguemate off the track and terrible to skate against. As a committee manager for Mediation, Lethal does a lot of work for the league behind the scenes and is always there when you need support. When things go off the rails, Lethal helps ensure they get back on track and that the league keeps running smoothly. With her “Mediation tip of the month” Lethal encourages us all to show appreciation for each other, see each other’s point of view, and just be better people in general. Thank you Lethal for all you do!

Killer Kapowski
September 2019

When Killer Kapowski had to retire from skating due to an injury, that didn’t stop her from being an integral part of BAD. Instead she focused her energy on helping the league in other ways. Killer joined our Board of Directors where she has played a huge role in making sure our finances are in order. Now Killer is back on skates, fiercer than ever, while also helping with innumerable things such as venue hunting and policy writing. Thank you Killer for all you do!

May the Force
November 2019

May the Force is one of our Officiating Committee Managers and the league’s Head NSO (Non-Skating Official), and she is masterful at holding a crew together. As an official, May is professional, hard-working, and knowledgeable. May the Force is also a kind soul who can calmly remove a live lizard from the track in the middle of a scrimmage. Thank you May for all you do!


Peter Panic
December 2019

Peter Panic is a person who deeply cares about supporting folks who are learning to skate, and helping them feel comfortable in our space. Panic goes above and beyond to show up to extra practices and league-wide events, and always recognizes effort from fellow league members. They embrace and encourage highly competitive game play with loads of positivity. Thank you Peter Panic for all you do!
