Featured Skater: Skinner Alive #85

We are kicking off 2014 why featuring one of the greatest skaters in our league. Skinner
Alive has been with ARRG for 3.5 years, and skates with the Twisted Thistles. She is one of our coaches, a star jammer and an amazing blocker.
Skinner is also hugely involved within the league – not only does she head up the sponsorship and advertising committee, but she is also one of the board members. She works hard to keep the league running, alongside training and skater for our A team. She’s a great example of what hard work and dedication can bring, and we all LOVE HER!!
