The skater section: TOP TIPS!

Do you play roller derby? Want to up your game? We’ll be sharing our newest top tips here on our newsletter, brought to you from our best and most seasoned skaters.

Pump up your game! 
Our current gameplay’s style requires us to build extra muscles in order to prevent injuries, and to become an efficient and effective player. Victory Slaps wrote a detailed post on her blog on bracing, including workout exercise. Click here to have a look.

Trick – a new playground!
Summer is here and you might be willing to use your skates in a different setting. Yeah, it’s time to give it a go and conquer the skatepark!! On the Chicks in Bowls website, you’ll find all about the basics and it’s very inspirational. But, in all physical activity, it’s very important to warm up. Our current fav’ is Indy Jamma Jones’ warm-up routine.

British Champs Tier 2 South: Batter C Power on the road again

Some people are lucky enough to be gifted with a godmother to look after them. Well Batter C Power seem to have a poltergeist looking after their Brit Champs’ trip! No lost kit on the highway this time, just a fifth of the team stuck at Victoria Coach Station. No hard feelings towards the coach driver, we know how hard it is to be an early riser on a Sunday morning.

Fortunately, there’s an happy ending.

They’ve managed to reach Taunton on time to play against SWAT and what a game!! The first fifteen minutes were intense and it was very tight. At the end, Batter C Power established its game and came back home with a win (86-281). Next British Champs’ game being an home game, let’s hope their poltergeist will take a day off!
