Hoff the Chain #311

Why did you pick your derby name and number?

Hoff is my last name so it's a play on words..."Hoff the Chain" instead of "Off the Chain". I've had to explain to some people what "Off the Chain" means. I picked my number because my husband's birthday is March 11.

What do you like about roller derby?

There are sooooo many things I love about derby! After starting derby I gained self-confidence, athletism, and many new friends.

 

What is your most impressive derby injury?

I haven't really had that many. Just a lot of bruises. 

 

Do you have any advice for people thinking about trying derby?

Do it. If it turns out to be something you really enjoy, don't give up. It takes time and determination but anyone can do it.
