Big plans for a big Community

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

For Skaters

Derby Skills : Bootcamp edition (Tickets available now)

April 14 and 15 in York (UK)

A weekend away for you and your skills.  #minibreakmeanstruelove
Our second collab with Team England skater Missy Rascal, sharing her obsession with edges and our love for bringing skaters back to the fundamentals of skating.  The weekend is structured around the WFTDA Minimum Skills Framework with an emphasis on translating assessed skills onto the derby track.

Minimum skills are derby skills.


For Coaches

EURO DERBY CON FTW (July 19 - 22 in Barcelona, Spain)

Rule 56 is headed to Barcelona to be a part of the biggest Euro Derby gathering ever.  We'll be running free seminars over the course of the weekend and generally chatting to everyone we can.  If you're going to be there and you fancy having a natter about coaching, let us know -- we are totally up for shooting the coaching breeze over sangria in the sunshine.  

More info on our sessions to come! 




COACHING WEBINARS  (new sessions coming soon!) 

It all started with Derby Stance UK, a weekend of big coaches and even bigger ideas...  but not everyone can spare two days away immersed in coaching theory and roller derby networks...  there's training and skating and fundraising to be done!  

Rule 56 is working to bring all those ideas and teaching and coaching excitement right into your home (or anywhere you can take your phone).   

Big coaches.  Big ideas.  Your computer.
