We are looking for coaches who can subject our league to equal parts butt-kicking, love, and leadership. No roller derby experience? No problem! We all started off being like “what-the-what??” when it came to comprehending roller derby. With our support and guidance you will fall in love with derby in no time. And by “fall in love” we mean become totally obsessed with it like the rest of us. You will become ONE OF US.
Despite the silliness of this description, we are a serious league with serious aspirations but we need some help to bring them to fruition. For serious.
Derby is hard, mentally and physically. Coaches provide leadership that will prepare our teams for the butt-kicking that is derby. Coaches help make decisions by being the devil and/or angel on the shoulders of the Board of Directors and Captains. Coordinating a bunch of off-track stuff is hard, so coaches don’t have to do it, unless they want to. We’ve got committees for that, so you can focus on coaching stuff like:
- Designing, running and managing league practices
- Helping to select rosters and create line-ups
- Keeping us cool as cucumbers with coaching prowess during scrimmages and bouts
- Providing feedback to skaters so we can continue to level up
- Traveling with the team to tournaments and bouts, sometimes in the States, mostly on weekends, when and if possible
