Wheelia Smith: "Oh my god, this is like, the derby equivalent of David Beckham coming to coach…"
A big week for Bath Roller Derby Girls! With a brand new intake of Fresh Meat starting and our second ever scrimmage on the horizon, we thought we'd get some derby mojo behind us. What better way than a Saturday bootcamp with Tiger Bay Brawlers' Kid Block and Boba Fettish?
Having seen the damage that Cardiff's top team recently did in the European Skate Odyssey tournament (and at least half of us totally fan-girling at their combined mad skills), we were excited to learn as much as we could cram in. And it was a LOT! Kid and Boba gave us an invaluable session of skills, drills and training tips that will push our gameplay to new places… full heads and sore legs have never felt so good!
A massive thank you to the lovely Kid Block and Boba Fettish, and also to Tiger Bay Brawlers for letting us borrow them for an excellent day of bootcamp greatness.
