Hi, My name is Zoe Nicholson (FN Perfect) and I currently play for the VJRD ScreamPunks and officiate with the TCRG authority figures in Vancouver BC. I’ve been skating for about five years and I love to pivot, block, and jam. I’ve always been pretty active. For example, I started gymnastics at a young age and ever since then I’ve been very interested in health and fitness. Roller derby means the world to me and representing Canada alongside 29 other amazing skaters is a dream come true.

Hobbies? Derby is her hobby, as is almost anything she can be playing.
In the past she’s run track and played indoor soccer and for the last two years has been on her highschool swim team.
Being on the first ever Team Canada Junior Roller Derby…one word – AMAZING!! The idea of representing the best country in the world by playing THE coolest sport around for young women is an adventure I’m very much looking forward to and will cherish forever. To be meeting and skating with young people from other parts of this country and the world is very exciting. We’re all winners, no matter what the scoreboards will say.
The Derby community is one like no other and I’m very proud to be part of it. I’ve been so fortunate to have received mentorship from some of the most talented and caring people involved in our GEJRDA league. The support Junior Derby has in our community is nothing short of amazing. I can’t thank you all enough for all your support, coaching and yes even the figurative kick in the butt I needed once in a while. I will unleash the Kaos!!
