Sly Foxx has soared her way to the top spot as our November Derby Doll of the Month!
All this month we are honoring our dearest skater, Sly Foxx! Sly has continually gone above and beyond for the league from organizing fundraisers to scheduling practices. Her work for the Derby Dolls has created an arena of camaraderie and peace as we transition as a league, and we adore her immensely for it.
Our November Derby Doll first started her life on roller skates, years before joining LADD. With a skater mother encouraging her along the way, she roller figure skated from 1991 to 2010. Sly traveled the world on her quads and took part in skate competitions with her precision team. This awesome doll has been killing it on 8 wheels for over 25 years supplying her with both a formal and aggressive skill set that has proven to everyone what a badass she is on skates.
Her rich skating skills are complemented greatly with her generous heart. As we go through our transition, Sly has been a strong helping hand to not just skaters but the league as a whole. She has helped coordinate tryouts and practices for all and has been a great source of information and guidance for LADD members. Sly keeps an open dialogue with the EC and the BOD that has created a peaceful connection for our leaders here at LA Derby Dolls.
Sly’s contributions to the league don't stop there. Last month, she single handedly planned and directed our sold out Halloween bout at Moonlight Rollerway. This event created a platform for the public to see us again and was a great kickoff for friends and family into the Halloween season. This event helped raise some well needed money for our league and showed everybody that the Derby Dolls are still around and strong.
Sly’s years at LADD have been filled with the loving camaraderie of her fellow rough and tough, Fight Crew ladies. Her team loves her for her fire and her stone cold blocking. She fights hard beside her teammates and it all payed off last year when they won it all and took home Champs. Sly gives her all to her crew and her team values all that is Sly Foxx.
Sly has given the league her heart as well as her hard work and dedication. She openly shares her LADD pride with anybody and everybody, while working hard to better herself as a skater and a teammate. Sly is a loving skater that deserves all the love back. Thank you for everything you do, Sly Foxx.
