Player introduction: Hälinä

Hälinä, #505 (she/her)

“I have always been very skeptical about sports, especially team and contact sports. Naturally, of all possible sports, I decided to try roller derby last autumn, and I was sold on it right away. I’m fascinated by every aspect of derby: people are wonderful, the community is accepting and supportive, and playing is so much fun! It’s also cool that derby seems really rough from the outside point of view. 😎 At the moment, I want to learn to play in all positions, but perhaps sometime later I’ll specialize in something specific. Although I don’t have so many memories of derby yet, the most fun thing so far has been to play my first scrimmage outside of our own league in Porvoo!”
