Welcome to the 44th issue of fiveonfive!
It’s Summer here in the northern hemisphere and that means more trail skating, more outdoor cross-training, and more RollerCon-ing. Do you know what 110 degrees farenheit feels like at midnight on
a Wednesday? ‘Cause Rollercon does.
As many leagues are taking a much-needed break, others are ramping up for the post-season. In this issue, we look to Midge “Mayhem” Wilhelm and Swede Hurt for insight into using statistics to tell the story of a game and some examples of coaching excellence in their careers. Agony Christie shares some modern methods for fundraising in a competitive landscape, and Artichoke-her strengthens our crossovers with a progression of solid yoga poses.
Sinful Sally covers blister care and prevention in our health and fitness section, Ruby Snap keeps us fueled with lemon poppy protein bites (zingy!), and Poison Apple takes on toxic positivity as it manifests in modern derby.
Do you like free resources? Amy Jo Moore has you covered with a producer’s template for announcing a game geared toward a more advanced derby fandom. Jump to page 36 to see a few of our favorites, then explore the Summer issue to find even more roller derby goodness!
