Re: “Roller Derby: O-Town Downed

Ok ladies, I watched the whole thing and here it is:
1. Look behind you...in order to block the other jammer, you need to see her coming, then get in her way and communicate to your team when she's coming..you were letting her through just about every time & it was very hard to watch. This was the biggest problem I saw. Practice looking behind you.
2. Pack it up...you were way to spread out & it was way too easy for the other teams jammer to get through...it looked like messy line drills. Practice skating closer together and controlling speed.
3. Get up quickly when you fall, get back in the pack, and watch for the incoming jammer. Practice suicides, falls and push yourself to get up quickly.
4. Skate lower, stronger and work on your lateral movement....watch for the incoming jammer, and when she comes, get in her way. Do squats, lunges, and work on skating form.
5. Know when to call off the jam...if you're lead jammer and she passes you, especially if she's passed you by about 10 feet and you can't catch up, call it before she gets to the pack and scores on you.
6. (This one is actually the most important) PLEASE don't bag on the refs! Seriously.
