Great practice tonight ladies! We did some 1 on 1 positional staying forward and using our strong edge work to hold the jammer.
We moved On to 2 on 1s and we learn why we need to stay together to prevent the jammer from taking advantage of any space open to get a shoulder in to break us apart.
We worked on bracing in a tripod focusing on the brace to direct the group and keep a strong tight wall.
We worked on our 45s (a.k.a 1 foot plow stops) and keeping our hips and upper body together.
Finally we did jammer work. Foot work, juking, apex jumping to hone those fast movements needed by a Jammer.
Keep up the great work!
Have you always wondered what it would be like to step into the Skates of a derby girl?
The Root River Rollers will be hosting a Boot Camp on May 19th.
Our Boot Camp for Newbies or like we call them “Fresh Bait” is a one-time, three hour practice where you will get a feel for what roller derby is all about. There will be no contact at this session only individual skills that are the foundation for a great roller derby player.
This Boot Camp will be a great workout so expect to sweat and expect to get a lot of information. At the end you will have a better idea if Roller Derby is right for you.
Our upcoming Boot Camp is May 19th from 9:00 AM – Noon and cost $20.
After you attend Boot Camp and you’re ready for more (which I know you will be!) Sign up for our 10 week Fresh Bait session which meets Monday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM and cost $120. Cheaper than a gym membership and so much more fun.
Email us at Rootriverrollers@gmail.com for additional information or check us out on Facebook at our Root River Rollers.
UPDATE!!!! Thanks so much to everyone who has signed up for our Boot Camp we are at MAX capacity! Truly there is a want and need for roller derby in the area!!!!!!
