Default Speed Skating Near Pittsburgh?

Hi Everyone~

I'm new here. I am a derby girl with the Steel City Derby Demons from Pittsburgh, PA & Captain of one of our 4 teams. I have been trying to find quad speed clubs in or near Pittsburgh. I haven't had any luck. Does anyone out there know of any close by? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

xoxo

Rumor has it Donora has a speed team again. Contact Justin or Heather from the Steel City Jammers, they might know a little more info about Donora.

Donora coach is Adorée DeLuca-Johnson of Valley Speed Team. I don't know about quads there. There has been at least one other inline speed team in the area, don't remember name off-hand, but I have no reason to think they've been doing quads.

haha Thanks Kennedy! Heather aka Hurricane Heather is actually on my team! She is one of the Best skaters in our entire league, and yes, fast as lighting! She mostly jam skates (and plays derby) now & isn't doing anything at Donora. I did talk to her today though, we are gonna make some calls & explore some possibilities.

Thanks for your help!

I feel like a complete idiot now. I forgot about Heather's alter ego as a derby girl.

If you guys want to try a speed practice, the rink in Hermitage has speed practice a few days a week. It would be long drive, but Joe's practices usually pretty intense and well worth the effort to get there. A few people were driving from Cleveland to practice there. You could give him a call and see if he would cater to a bunch of quad skaters. IMO it would be worth it to try once to get a feel for what goes on.

No worries. I told Heather about the post. Now she is curious as to who you are & if she knows you or skated with you? I will look into Hermitage. Do you know the name of the rink or the phone number by chance?

Here is the web page for the rink in Hermitage: http://www.olympicfuncenter.com/


I have skated with Heather, Justin and the other Steel City Jammers. I am sure Heather would know who I am to see me. She may know me as the guy that Candy dated and lived with for a while.
