Let’s be honest. Derby girls are bad*ss. There’s no one kind but they’re all special & you know you wanna be one, know one or see one in action. Is it hockey? Football? WWF? We don’t know. It’s totally imperfect & that *might* just be the best thing about it. 💥Shout out to the rowdy moms, professors, doctors, tattoo artists, childcare workers, teachers, accountants, athletes & teammates of all body types, heights & personalities body checkin it up & resurrecting a sport which was birthed by women early in the last century. You know you wanna be one. Or know one. Or watch one in action. *extra special love to those who’s armor includes #pridesocks gear. 💥🌈⚡️ >>>Swipe to see additional badassery in action. #shoppridesocks#yolo 📷: @spaghetti_skates
We spend a lot of time in roller derby talking about 'good sides' and 'bad sides'. It's been a goal of mine recently to try and eliminate the concept of having a bad side.
It's very tempting when we practice to stick with the side we are most comfortable with, thus preventing ourselves from improving on the side that doesn't come so naturally.
A recent skills session at training really highlighted to me how many experienced skaters still struggle to do perform some skills effectively with both sides.
For me, it's my left side - my leg isn't as strong, I can't drive as much force into the floor, and I have less flexibility, meaning some of the twisting required to perform stops, in particular, is less effective.
I've been practicing left side hockey stops since that skills session - hundreds of repetitions, and I think that while there is always room for improvement, I've closed the gap enough that I can now consider that instead of having a good/bad side, I can now stop effectively on both sides, but one just comes more naturally than the other.
It's not exciting, particularly fun, and it doesn't make for a fancy video, but it is essential to improving your skating skills and your gameplay.
