Otherwise:
– You must have had training in derby basic skills so you can stop and fall safely (and more)
– You must have experience scrimmaging and know the rules of roller derby

Phase 1 – Sunday session: skating skills, derby skills and strategy drills
Phase 2 – Tuesday session: scrimmage

NOT ABLE TO ATTEND TRYOUTS?
London Rollergirls will be accepting video submissions for Tryouts.

Please purchase a ‘video submission’ ticket. Then, email hots@londonrollergirls.com for details on how to submit your video. You will be expected to send a highlight reel of sorts, or a full game with a list of relevant time stamps where it is easy to identify who you are on the track.

If you are successful via video you will be invited to attend Phase 2 scrimmage in order to assess you further to see if you can enter probation.

DEADLINE FOR VIDEO SUBMISSION: Friday 4th January 2019. Late submissions will not be accepted.

Please note: You must be available in person to attend Phase 2, should you be successful in Phase 1. For those who pass both rounds probation will start immediately following your acceptance email. We expect all tryout-ees to be committed to joining main league and available for the probation period and beyond; if you cannot begin probation immediately please flag this to hots@londonrollergirls.com

What is DIY Space for London?

DIY Space For London is a cooperatively-run social centre located in South London, just off Old Kent Road. They offer low cost creative facilities, meeting rooms and social space as well as space for screenings, talks and performances. The space works to promote the ideas of mutual aid (helping each other) and cooperation (working together). Providing a welcoming space for everyone, including those whose voices and contributions are not always heard or appreciated, is a top priority for them.

To attend an event, you need to be a member, which costs £2 a year and can be done in a few minutes online: www.membermojo.co.uk/diyspaceforlondon or a guest of a member.

DIY Space For London is open to all ages. Children under 12 must wear ear defenders and any persons under 18 must be signed in and accompanied by a responsible adult member.

Accountability Agreement

DSFL is committed to amplifying the voices of people who, outside of this place, do not always get heard as loudly, or whose experiences and opinions are all-too-often thought of as less important or valid.

They want all our fellow members and the guests they bring along to agree to a way of being, doing and interacting in the space so that we can work together to make some amazing stuff happen.

They call these ideas their “accountability agreement” and they can be found here: www.diyspaceforlondon.org/accountability

London Brawling Presents: Minimum Skills, Drills and Thrills III

View on Facebook

FINAL LRG BOOTCAMP OF 2018!

Want to work on your basic skating skills or pass those pesky Minimum Skills? We will teach you not only how to perform the techniques but how they apply to the game of roller derby.

PART 3: Blocking Fundamentals

This bootcamp will provide world class coaching on some of the basics for pack work and blocking. From whips to weaving, we’ve got your back!

You will learn how to apply your skills to positional blocking, taking impact and working with others through pushing and bracing, as outlined in the WFTDA minimum skills test.

Lead coaches will be Brawling and international skaters Juke Boxx and Shaolynn Scarlett, who will be going through section 4 (pack skills and interactions) and section 5 (blocking) of the minimum skills requirements and how they apply on game day.

This bootcamp is gender inclusive and open to all skaters who have done basic contact. You do not need to have passed Minimum Skills.

After the bootcamp on 20 October we have a LIVE Double Header with Batter C taking on Swansea and Brawl Saints taking on Rainy City Tender Hooligans! A whole day of Derby, not to be missed!

Bootcamp tickets cost £31.60 On Skates and £16.15 Off Skates (including booking fee)
