April Sin - #33 SiN BiN

April Lyn Kimble, or April Sin #33 (SiN BiN when reffing), blocker/ referee for the OSRA's Raggedy Rollers born March 21st, embodies the energy and passion of the Aries. How fitting that her motto is Nelly Furtado's "I’m Like A Bird, I Long to fly away, I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is."

It was this wild risk-taking quality that, when OSRA's founder Snarly Charlie emailed her at Sun FM asking if they could air announcements about the league needing girls a little over two years ago, she not only agreed, but offered to be interviewed herself. "To make it more fun, I suggested that we make me a derby name and go out to a practice," she said. So she went out one early Sunday morning, and skated, she thought, "not too bad." Then when she got an email from Snarly the following Monday telling her she was in, her answer was an immediate "Yes!"

She knew she was joining a team; she did not expect to join a family, too. "I have never really met ladies like the ladies I roll with," she said of her Raggedy Rollers. "We all accept each other for who we are, and are there for each other. We all work hard, and like to play hard- on and off the track."

Their hard work is paying off: They made the top 8 this year, ranking 7th in BC and Alberta. Finishing the year off 5th in western finals!

April-Sin-33-SiN-BiN-2Her most memorable experience with the team, and one of the best days of her life, however, came when her arena, the Hassen, won the Kraft Celebration Tour, and they were featured on TSN's "Sports Centre" "It was so amazing," she said. "My family is all out in Ontario, and I got to say ‘Hi Mom’ on Live TV!" (http://bit.ly/Lu5BIt).

She hopes the national TV appearance will prove equally good for her sport. She says she dreams of more women being in the derby, of people seeing the hard work they do and the fun they have and taking it more seriously.

April also takes tattoos seriously. Her favorite shop is Vertigo's Tattoos in Salmon Arm. She has a pink start with angel wings and a halo, a butterfly, and her Derby Wife's #808 on her rib. This is particularly special as it was done by her captain Snarly Charlie herself.
