Scott has been in the business since 2001. He's had dozens of hockey & figure skating articles & two books published, several of which are in the Hockey Hall of Fame. His Rocket Skate Blog has great tips on buying, repairing and maintaining gear. Much to his surprise he was recently called legend in Boulder County's hockey community.


Azalea was born in Zimbabwe and spent most of her years in South Africa (or Sofrica as she calls it). Her family returned to the U.S. in 2018 on their 49-foot sailboat. She's a devoted figure skater and member of the Sparks Synchro team. Azalea joined Rocket Skate in 2019. Do not get between her and her fruit chews.


Ally has worked on and off at Rocket Skate for since 2011. She earned her masters degree in music in 2020, and is a highly accomplished violist and hockey player. Can she dangle through the opposing defense while playing Beethoven? I don't know, but she'd have a better chance than anyone else I can think of. 


Despite the fact that he's a Penguins Fan, we hired Nick in 2019 (because let's face it, at least he isn't a Flyers fan). Nick is currently at CU Boulder pursuing a master's degree in Architectural engineering. In addition to playing ice hockey he's an avid soccer player and enjoys taking in-car selfies. 


Rose joined the team in 2014. She's been an avid figure skater since 2010. An excellent writer and editor, Rose is a CU graduate of CU's College of Media, Communication & Information. She holds a blackbelt in sarcasm, is a world renowned grammar Nazi and a world class quidditch player.

An accomplished hockey player, Rowan joined us in 2019. As a U16, she plays U19 for Team Colorado (the only AAA Girl's program in the state). Pound for pound, she might be the best skate lacer in the entire state. Once she retires from hockey, she plans to become the first female Buzkashi star in Afganastan.


Caleb managed to sweet talk his way onto the Roughriders AAA team. He also captained both Monarch teams in the 2019/20 season. He briefly tried to be a vegan but couldn't handle the ensuing bullying. We're not certain this picture is actually him as it is nearly identical to an ad from a late 70's Sears Catalog.
