London Brawling presents: Minimum Skills, Drills and Thrills Part 2

IT’S BOOTCAMP TIME

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 2: Agility and Fancy Footwork

Stepping, Hopping, Weaving, Transitions—OH MY!

In Part 2 of our Minimum Skills Bootcamps, we break down all the techniques to nail these movements with confidence. Not only that, but we’ll be showing you the practical application for all of these skills so you can bust out some sweet moves whether you are jamming or blocking. Fancy footwork is such a crucial part of being an awesome derby skater, so we’ll show you some of our favourite moves and fun ways to drill them.

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

This trio of bootcamps will finish up on 20 October 2018 with PART 3: Blocking Fundamentals

After the bootcamp on 21 July we have a Double Header with Batter C taking on Bath as part of British Champs, and a special surprise opening game to kick that off! A whole day of Derby, not to be missed!

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

**TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY 8 JUNE AT MIDDAY**
