All aBout Derby and Getsome Athletics Present Team Training
This new and unique roller derby training camp is set up to help teams learn more about how to work together and what pieces of strategy they are missing that will take them to the next step.
This exciting two day event will feature three 30min scrimmages for every team as well as one full length game. Each of the scrimmages will have a guest coach, Shorty Ounce or Carmen Getsome, on your bench providing you with in game and post jam feedback.
The full length game will be run by your normal training staff with Shorty Ounce and Carmen Getsome taking notes. These games will be recorded to use for video review on Sunday.
Sunday morning will have a 2 hour video (of the previous nights games) review session with notes, feedback and recommendations done by Carmen Getsome and Shorty Ounce.
Following the video review will be an optional 4 hour on skates skills and strategy training session that will provide drills to improve areas directly correlated with the video review session. This training session is open to everyone but those that participate in the scrimmage and games will get the training session for 50% off.
