Merry Khaos started playing derby in 2009 when a group from Harrisburg Area Roller Derby overheard her talking about starting a women’s flag league in the area. She turned to derby instead and since has played for the Dutchland Derby Rollers, Charm City Rollergirls, and now is part of the flock of Tampa Roller Derby.
She began officiating in 2014, becoming MRDA recognized shortly thereafter. While recovering from ACLr surgery in 2016, Khaos started her announcing career and put in more than 60 calls in her first year, at five different tournaments. Khaos also coaches the Eckerd College Roller Derby club.
Her goals are to continue to strengthen her legs and make her way back into WFTDA D1 play. Focusing on blocking for the travel team, and jamming for her home team, Khaos strives to be diverse in her abilities and always is looking to learn new things.
Alongside of other members of Tampa Roller Derby, she’ll be a part of the Skating Out of Bounds podcast launching at the end of 2017, while she continues to write for her own Khaos Theory Blog.
