It is my pleasure to introduce Humboldt Roller Derby’s volunteer of the month, Tiffany Reynolds!
Tiffany says she got into volunteering with HRD when her daughter, Predatori, started skating with the Saplings 3 years ago. Tiffany first learned to skate at HRD’s boot-camp but wanted to devote her time to helping the Saplings program. This super-volunteer is at EVERY practice performing duties ranging from coaching, to wrangling, to bout set up/break down, administrative functions, and even rendering first aid when needed!
Fellow volunteers say that Tiffany has been a cornerstone of the Sapling program from day one. She is at every practice to support the girls and the coaches in whatever way they need. She is always positive, present and willing to do whatever it takes to help the program run smoother.
Tiffany is a “Derby mom” in the true sense of the term…filling her van with Saplings to recruitment drives at schools, organizing the skaters for Rules Demos, or just taking skaters to the skate park for some weekend practice. She and her husband also donate their time and money to train the Sapling coaches in CPR & First Aid.
Coach Thunder says, ” I can’t express in words how valuable she is to the HRD Jr. program, she is a go-to woman for other Sapling parents…making herself available for questions and concerns”.
When asked why she volunteers, Tiffany said “My favorite part of volunteering is seeing the confidence that is instilled in the young Saplings as they learn to skate and the awesome coaches that teach them. Watching my daughter develop into an awesome skater in a full contact sport that she has grown to love is a big part of the reason that I continue to volunteer “and that, “My favorite part of HRD is watching the young girls of the community looking up to the strong role models that the Rollers are for them”.
Please join us in thanking Tiffany, and all of our volunteers, who make Humboldt Roller Derby and our Saplings program possible.
