Big plans for a big Community

The best way to develop a community is to bring people together, in person or online. 

For Coaches

For Skaters

(Nov 29 - Dec 02)

The next big thing in the coaching conversation!

Four days of online seminars, workshops, and opportunities to connect with other roller derby coaches and captains! 

Breaking down geographic and time barriers, this coaching summit is all online, with an opportunity to access the seminars after the fact, in case you can't attend due to silly things like jobs or sleep. 

Pop over to our logistics page where you can

  • check out the insane speaker line-up (still expanding)
  • doff your helmet to our amazing sponsors
  • sign up to be on the "first to know" list when registration opens
  • and keep an eye out for our schedule - due to be published in the not too far away

Let's keep talking about coaching.  

Bite-sized Bootcamps for your busy derby schedules.  

Another one about building walls
11 August  2018, Bradford (UK)

Our next 2-hour session will focus on holding edges and shutting down opportunities for lateral loving jammers. 

Looking at the six key objectives of a decent wall : the catch, tracking, the lock-down, the hand off, the reform, and wall defense.  Build your skills and see how these different elements work together in any wall formation. 

For beginner and intermediate scrimmagers.
Pre-mins, all genders, and juniors 12+ all welcome.
