Bootcamps & Guest Coaches
If you're new to roller derby, there are always pre-mins bootcamps available in the UK that you can go to while you're on a "fresh meat" course. It's highly recommended that you try one or more to compliment your rookie journey. Brush up on those skills from some top coaches in the UK!

On this page you'll find a list of regular pre-mins bootcamps, and also a directory of coaches in the UK who can travel to your league to help out. Why not ask your league about guest coaches and bootcamps?

If you're a coach and want to feature on this page, let us know!
