Get to know Sloan U. Down...
What is the meaning behind your skater name?
Sloan is the name of one of my favorite bands ever. When I saw them in 2018, I told them about my derby name. They all basically said, "Awesome! Please be careful! Seriously. Be careful."
What was your athletic background prior to playing roller derby?
I grew up playing a variety of sports. As an adult, I've been playing floor hockey/dek hockey for the past 6 years and have played soccer, volleyball, softball and kickball.
Is there a song that gets you pumped up before a bout?
"If It Feels Good Do It" by Sloan and "Relentless" by Arkells.
How did you get started in your roller derby career?
My oldest sister played roller derby with Ohio Roller Derby back in the early 2000's. I loved watching her play and fell in love with the sport. 13 years after seeing my first bout, I was finally able to try it out myself.
