Congratulations to our new ADD skaters!April 16th, 2012 by Nasty
Congratulations the last batch of Fresh Meat for passing their WFDTA minimum skills test! We are looking forward to bumping wheels with you on the track, so start thinking about your derby names!
Any WFTDA passed skater will tell you that minimum skills is exactly that, the minimum of what you need to know in order roll in a tight pack. The real work starts now: you need blocking and counter-blocking, complex strategies and understanding referee calls to get to the next level.
It’s again time to re-read what Swede Hurt of Malmö’s Crime City Rollers has to say about what passing minimum skills really means.
For anyone else reading this, if you think you have what it takes to skate with this group of awesome women in a full-contact sport, send us an e-mail at Fresh Meat because our Fresh Meat day is literally around the corner!
