Getsome Athletics is excited to be bringing two internationally recognized coaches to the island of Okinawa to teach roller derby’s newest and most innovative strategies!
Vito Ramon, the head coach of the Rat City Rollergirls and Jr Team USA West, is known for his amazing coaching style that brings out the best in everyone, while developing new skills. He constantly creates new strategies and drills to correct and improve existing problems.
Carmen Getsome, Rat City All Star and skater on WFTDA Team USA, will also bring her skating skills and knowledge to the island. Carmen loves teaching new skills, next level strategies, and watching athletes put all the pieces together.
If you want to improve your game, you must make sure to attend this weekend full of education and derby knowledge!
The weekend will be broken into 1.5-2.5 hour sessions focused on specific parts of roller derby, including:
-defensive structures: triangles, cubes, lines, and what is the best choice for you and your team at any given time
-offense and why it is now as important as defense.
Carmen and Vito will teach you not only how to play offense as a single person, but also how to play coordinated offense with your teammates. They will teach body positioning, contact locations, speed and approach, as well as how the jammers can help set up their own amazing offense
-Jammer skills. Carmen is one of the derby community’s best pivots, which stems from spending 7 years as a primary jammer for a WFTDA top 15 team. Learn the moves and skills that will help your jammers break out of the pack and score all the points!
-Coaching the Coaches. There will be a special 2 hour classroom style class about how to run effective practices and the importance of instant feedback. Vito and Carmen will run this class to teach how coaching styles and skills are ultimately responsible for the culture and atmosphere of the team.
Come to this session to learn how to keep your team positive, healthy and competitive!
