Skater Highlight: 2018 Captain & Co-Captain

2018 Team CaptainsAs many of you know from our media pages, we have some new and exciting Captains this season! You can catch them on the track representing the Runaways by the “C” they wear during bouts. But, get to know them first!

What do our captains do? The Captain and Co-Captain are positions voted on by the team. They work with the training committee and the coaching staff to design and execute team practices in line with the team goals. They are an open resource for the A Team players for advice, questions, and issues.

We took a chance to sit down with our new captains for our 2018 season – H Face  Killa and Creep it Lo. Here is what they had to say during a Q&A.
