Skater Of The Month

Noah Tall has been a part of NWARD since its inception in the Spring of 2006. She began as a member of the Hardwood Harlots, then the Backwoods Betties but has long since turned in her jerseys for stripes – that’s right, Noah Tall is NWARD Head Referee. Noah barely misses a practice. Armed with her whistle, timer, and zebra-stripes, she teaches NWARD skaters, new and old, the rules of the game and hopefully how to avoid penalties! Noah’s favorite thing about roller derby: “I love that there is always someone there who has been where you are, who will listen to you, encourage you, and even tell you when you are being stupid.”

Off-skates, Noah is a mother of 2 and has been married for 14 years to her loving husband. You might spy her at a renaissance fair, at her computer or watching sci-fi.

We salute you, Noah, and your fierce dedication to the sport of roller derby. And thank you for making us better players!
