"Derby Re-Education 101" with ZipBlok
There are things that each and every derby skater has heard throughout their derby training. For example, phrases like, GET LOW! start to sound like muted word vomit and stop being effective forms of communication. Lets create a dialogue around the limitations of language used in derby and start a new conversation that empowers skaters as individuals and addresses their personal needs. This is a class to help coaches coach their skaters more positively by embracing them as they are and helping them capitalize on their unique skills to enhance their team. This is also for skaters to think through how their personal skating quirks and habits can be used to increase their overall skill and unique skater identity.

ZipBlok (uses she/her pronouns) started with the DC Rollergirls in 2012 before heading to Philly to pursue sex education and sex therapy degrees and skate with Philly Roller Derby. Although she's played every position and can be caught in a star jumping an apex or two, her current primary focus is defense and using her teaching experience to coach derby. She is also the owner of theF0LD, specialising in gender-free, sleeveless, roller derby jackets and a member of Team Bont. You may have caught her coaching up and down the east coast of the US or in Australia at Derby Fest 2018.
Her coaching specialities are unlearning habits and dismantling derby language that keeps players from being at their personal best, the mechanics and importance of impenetrable, dynamic, devastating, two walls, and eating jammer space alive.
