Our friendly, highly-trained experts are here to help
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.
Caleb started in 2018. We thought we were free of him when he moved to Virginia for Juniors, but he returned, joined CU's D1 team & somehow snuck back into the shop. He once tried to be a vegan but couldn't handle the bullying. We're not certain this picture is really him as it's nearly identical late 70's Sears Catalog ad.
Ally has worked on and off at Rocket Skate 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.
Maris started work at Rocket Skate in 2021. Formerly a hockey player, she switched to figure skating in 2012 (much to the dismay of her father). It's good for us as she's the only dual threat on staff. Despite her small stature and constant smile, it's rumored that her purse is filled with various deadly weapons.
Ryon joined Team Rocket Skate in 2021 after fleeing Minnesota. A background check determined the rumors of police involvement were false. He's spending a gap year humiliating adult league goalies before heading to juniors. For the record, no one has been ever able to explain the spelling of his name.

Mentorship is a big part of what keeps me going. I'm proud of their achievements. I hope I've given them good advice. I feel blessed to have had these people as teammates once upon a time—Scott
Scott worked with Ozzy just around the turn of the century in the Pro Skate days. Ozzy had a true entrepreneurial spirit before he was hired. Until recently he was the founder, owner and operator of Periodic Brewing, which featured two locations in Colorado. Recently Ozzy moved to Texas to chase his next adventure.
Sophie worked for us from 2011 through 2014 while completing double majors in finance and chemistry at CU. She relocated to the Baltimore area upon landing the job she aimed for with that pair of degrees; she now works in finance for a major pharmaceutical company.
Jarad worked for us in 2011. He played a few games of minor league pro hockey before deciding it was time to stop chasing the dream. He apprenticed in plumbing. Since then he founded, owns and operates a successful construction company.
Ksusha started with us in 2014. She finished her Bachelors Degree at CU, while working with us through early 2021. Ksusha is currently managing a medical research lab at CU. As a pre-med student, she'll return to school eventually to pursue research in growing human replacement limbs and organs.
Nick worked for us from Summer of 2019 though mid 2021 while finishing his Masters Degree in electrical and architectural engineering at CU. He landed an excellent position months before graduation in his chosen field.
Rose was a huge part of Rocket Skate, working with the team for just shy of seven years. She finished her studies at CU earning a Bachelors Degree just in time for the world to be derailed by Covid. This benefited us by her presence for most of an extra year. Though sad to see her go, I'm excited for her choice to seek a career in publishing and hopeful she realizes her potential as an excellent editor.
You probably remember Rowan from her constant, day-brightening smile. In 2021, after a little over 2 years at Rocket Skate, she headed off to the Boston area to play hockey and continue her education. Already an amateur chiropractor, her college studies will be in the field of Sport's medicine.
