My Love Letter to Soccer

I am Rita Jones Ellis and I am a proud 59-year-old Scot-Canadian-American woman (I have the passports to prove it!). Born into a Scottish family with an undying love of soccer, I was the eldest girl in a family of seven – five girls, two boys. 

Go Figure (Skate!)

If I tell someone that I skate, they ask “rollerblading or skateboarding?” Imagine their surprise when I tell them… synchronized ice skating! My name is Signe Sawyer, and this is the story of how a little girl became a strong skater and confident young woman.

Aces on the Board

Only one day separates us now from the next episode of the WNBA Draft, and I can’t remember being more excited about a draft board in my life. Well, okay—2013 was pretty special. 

Skate Like a Girl

For the first time in my life, I feel like I am a part of a community where I belong. Skateboarding gives me the feeling of extreme happiness when I complete a trick, but also humility when I fall.
