Our coaches work darn hard in sharing their derby wisdom and training us up to be the next Kamikaze Kittens (a girl can dream). So we thought we'd give them a break one Sunday. Guest coaching is a big thing in Roller Derby so we spread the word that we're a new league looking for some outsider training!
Enter Severn Roller Torrent. Four of their most formidable skaters travelled down to us all the way from Gloucester one April Sunday to cram as much derby into our two hour training slot as possible!
First an intense thirty minute endurance drill. After catching our breath it was onto an hour of pack work and blocking skills. Lastly, thirty minutes working on jammer techniques. After all this we were ready for a good s-t-r-e-t-c-h and said our goodbyes. We were so worn out we didn't even remember to take any pictures! Any excuse to invite the girls back again!
Thanks to Miss Havislam, Jedi Mistress, Voodoo Ray for coming down!
