It's with deep sorrow that the Kansas City Roller Warriors report that we lost one of our own, Coach Ice (Tim Warder) to a heart attack on May 2nd, 2016. Coach Ice was one of the coaches that led the 2007 All Star team to the WFTDA National Championship. Coach Ice has been credited in teaching so many KC skaters, as well as a number of Midwest skaters on how to skate. He played a pivotal role in the Midwest derby movement and played an integral part in the modern day derby movement. He touched so many lives and skaters with his positive coaching style, his belief in their abilities and his big bear hugs! Our lives will not be the same without him. Our deepest condolences go out to his family and particularly his wife, Pandora (aka Pandamoanium, formerly known as Bad Omen).
Thank you to all who have already reached out and send their thoughts and condolences in this difficult time. If you have any photos of him or memories, please feel free to share, we know they will be much appreciated.
As Coach Ice would say: "Work together, skate as one! Refuse to lose!"
