A Chat with Columbia QuadSquad
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Columbia QuadSquad is a group of strong women who play the sport of roller derby. We are homemakers, professionals, & everything between. We are short, tall, "older," young, thin, thick & we all love roller skating. We are a non profit organization and love new teammates! No experience necessary.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
We are very welcoming and patient with our new skaters. You'll feel like you're a part of the team on your first visit. Groups of women can be intimidating, but its our job to make you feel comfortable and gain the confidence needed to play the fun game of roller derby with us. Go at your own pace!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Our skaters want a place to come to take out their frustrations while making friends and getting or staying in shape. We are like a big family that works out together. There is no other sport like women's roller derby on the earth and its the fastest growing women's sport in the world.
What do you love most about your job?
There is nothing like leading a new skater past her potential and seeing her reaction. We love to see skaters reach and surpass their goals whether it be skating 25 laps in 5 minutes or being able to make it through a practice without sitting. We celebrate each individuals success!
