Responsibilities for the committee include planning and running league practices, conducting minimum skills testing, organizing and running travel team tryouts, helping to demonstrate skills at fresh meat practices, and make decisions regarding coaching for our league

Running practices-We write out the practice plan rotation according to Missfit training needs. We search for, write, and run drills according to practice plan and skaters needs. The drills must challenge skaters while bringing valuable learning experience for each skater. We also make sure every practice has a leader by creating the sign up genius, maintaining it and monitoring it. We also set up the practice scrimmages against other teams. Cross training(offskates) and injury prevention is an important part of practice time that we try to research and incorporate into practices as well.

Skater evaluations-We organize and run minimum skills testing each year for the bouting skaters and will use this information in practice planning and skater feedback. We will also be working with the fresh meat committee for try outs and training fresh meat and getting them passed on min skills before they join full league/scrimmage practices. We'll be assessing level of skill for transfer skaters(bouting or fresh meat) Watching bouts and scrimmages to provide feedback to skaters and help with future practice plans. We are also working on a new tryout method for drafting the travel teams so we may have something to do with that if/when it comes around.

Other coaching/training tasks: Ref rules on the forum. Addressing specific training needs of any skater. Working with referees on adhearing to wftda rule and expectations. Constantly researching and studying both our own leagues and others' strategy and technique so as to improve together as athletes. Learning and teaching new roller derby strategy and skating technique. Constantly challenging the skaters and learning with them to help everyone improve in the sport of roller derby. Working with the board and HR when moving forward in implementing any new training protocols within the league. Inviting other leagues to visit us for practice scrimmages.

As training committee head I do many of these tasks but many are shared duties of the entire committee but I do over see and monitor that it is all getting done and taken care of. You have to know all of the things so that if someone isn't/can't do it then you can-and will have too. If any problems or concerns arise from the league or HR I will ultimately be the one to respond to the issue with the help and feedback of the beautiful ladies in training. Smile I just want to say it should be a strong willed person who has a lot of drive and substantial knowledge of derby to run training committee. You really need to be able to key in on what skaters need so you know what to do in practices and how to help each skater reach their fullest potential.
