Brawn Swanson

I developed an interest in roller derby when my sister Scald Eagle started playing in 2010. After graduating college in 2012 and following my sisters progress in the sport, I decided to move to Portland OR and make the switch from playing Ice hockey to roller derby. I made the fresh meat program in November of that year and have been completely immersed in derby since. After a couple years playing and developing my skills on the RCR home team The High Rollers, I decided to tryout for the travel team in 2015. I made massive strides that year as a rookie and our team went home at the end of the season with first place wins at both playoffs and champs. 2016 was a repeat of the previous year with the added bonus of winning the Championship Tournament MVP. Due to a family situation, 2017 was a bit of a shake up with me moving to Denver CO and joining DRD’s Mile High Club. Im really proud of how far our team came this year and I can’t wait to see what DRD brings to the track in 2018!  Following champs in 2016, I got into coaching and found it to be very rewarding. Ive really enjoyed coaching and can’t wait to come to Australia and coach at Camp Skate this year! It sounds like it's going to be a blast!!! 

 

My accomplishments include:

  • Rose City Rollers Rookie of the Year Award in 2014.

  • 1st place Rose City Rollers Home Team Championships in 2013, 2015, and 2016.

  • Rose City Rollers Best Blocker Award in 2016.

  • 1st Place at the 2015 WFTDA Playoffs in Dallas Texas.

  • 1st place at the  2015 WFTDA Championships in Saint Paul Minnesota.

  • 1st Place at the 2016 WFTDA Playoffs in Columbia South Carolina.

  • 1st place and Most Valuable Player at the 2016 WFTDA championships in Portland Oregon.

  • 2nd place at the 2017 WFTDA Payoffs in Malmo, Sweden.

Over the years, he has continued to train at a high level as both an official and a player and is highly regarded as both.

Lady Trample

Lady Trample has been skating ramps for almost as long as she’s been cutting laps. First taking to the transitions in 2012 at the end of her first bouting season, she instantly became addicted to the feeling of pumping up and down a ramp. Not long after he first drop-in, she formed Chicks in Bowls to post the progress of her crew of local rollers and since then has launched a revolution in the park skating scene. She’ll be running Camp Skates first ever Ramp Classes and is super excited to share what she’s learned about the ways of mastering everything from pumping, to stalling, sliding and more!
