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)

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.
