C: I have to say this is awesome. So surprised that I got selected.
AB: I gotta say, coaching you in the Learn to Skate program this fall was a breath of fresh air. How do you keep that positive energy up during the pressures of learning to skate?
C: Ha ha, my wife would disagree about me being positive, but I really enjoy the atmosphere at the practices and the girls and guys I have met are some amazing human beings so its hard to be negative around that.
AB: What are your hopes for the 2017 season?
C: I really want to learn the rules and maybe look at refereeing and being more involved at bouts.
AB: As we get back to regular practices, what will you be working on?
C: Oh Annie there is so much “suck” to work on but I really want to work on my conditioning and transitions those are tough.
AB: You volunteered with our league during the 2016 season. What responsibilities did you take on?
C: I basically did whatever CupQuake (my wife) told me to do, but I went to the fundraising events, volunteered for the Concessions and Merchandising Tables also worked the penalty board at bouts.
AB: Your wife and kids are also skaters in our league. Are there any challenges to having 4 skaters in the house or is it totally awesome?
C: It’s awesome watching the kids grow as skaters. It is amazing. I mean they are totally fearless on their skates. The kids have gained a lot more confidence since joining the league. As far as my wife goes she just loves to watch me fall and make fun of me. It’s nice to have something the whole family enjoys together.
AB: During the Learn to Skate program, what did you find you struggled with the most?
C: Transitions on my weak side, so freaking hard.
AB: You are pretty solid on your skates; will we see you play in some co-ed events this year?
C: Oh that would be epic I would love to get in there and mix it up.
AB: Other than skating, are you on any league committees?
C: Currently I am not on any committees but would like to look at that in the future.
AB: If you could have any super power, what would you choose?
C: Oh my super power would be telekinesis, why cause I’m lazy and I hate getting up to get stuff.
