Junior derby nationals!

2016-04-09 09.42.22A weekend in Daylesford with two days of derby for the small boys. It started with a day of boot camp with coaching by Mad Mel and Sausarge Rolls.

The boys were super happy to meet Sarge – a bit of a hero. They have also generally been coached by women – which isn’t a problem – but getting to be close up training with such an outstanding male skater is still a bonus when you are the minority gender in a sport.

2016-04-09 17.12.26Day 2 was bouts. ZeeQuack got his first outing as a bouting skater, albeit in a positional blocking only bout. But eight scoring passes!

2016-04-10 13.10.20SeaBash and Beathoven also got their chance on the track -some great jamming from both. Beathoven had Mad Mel has his bench coach and she kept putting him on to jam. He was a big fan by then end.

2016-04-10 11.39.26It was a fund weekend. ZeeQuack and Beathoven’s teams won their division – but there had to be one loser as SeaBash was in the team opposing Beathoven.  The boys also got to be part of two groups of skaters – the Little Adelaide Rollers…
