Is an Inconsistent training program hurting your league?

How would it feel to have a training program that takes the guess workout of when, how and what skills to train?   A training program that makes learning and understanding skills easier.  Where recruits pick up skills faster, have a stronger understanding of skating skills and are ready to play derby sooner.  Wouldn't it be nice to have a program that breaks down each skill into step by step instruction and builds weekly to help recruits become better faster?  

With Trainer Academy your league receives access to the 6 week curriculum that shows when, how and what skills to train weekly. The Trainer Academy 6 week curriculum includes instructional videos on how to teach skills along with obstacle courses that cover previously learned skills.  When following the curriculum, recruits are taught new skills weekly, practice previously learned skills during the warm up, obstacle course and drills.   Repetition is an important factor in Trainer Academy because it helps recruits maintain their previously learned skills and helps them to have a better understanding of how to skate.

Trainer Academy: so much more than minimum skills

In the past, I felt like we taught minimum skills, not derby skills (if that makes sense). Then, once they passed off on minimum skills we started teaching derby. With your program we are starting derby skills from day 1. Our vets were shocked at what our freshies were doing and completely in awe that they were skating backwards and in pace lines by the 2nd night of practice. I am super excited that this is just what our league needs to build a strong team.

Why skating skills are important in Roller Derby!

Most programs teach to minimum skills, it's important for new skaters to learn skating skills before derby play is taught.  If skaters are learning how to play derby and still don't have their skating skills down they will be focusing on skating and not how to play derby.  With Trainer Academy trainers teach new recruits skating skills while incorporating basic derby skills.

Are you tired of looking on YouTube for ways to make your new recruits better? always in search of some type of video to help explain a skill. Some videos can be long and never get to the point. With Trainer Academy your new recruits and trainers have access to our videos which are short and sweet. They will no longer feel the frustration of searching for that skill or watching endless videos. They will have step by step videos that follow the Trainer Academy curriculum with 24/7 access to these videos via a computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone.  Even if new recruits miss a practice they will be able to watch videos from that weeks training and stay current.

Is finding trainers a struggle for your league?

Do your trainers get burnt out or maybe you don't have enough skaters to teach or maybe you just aren't confident enough in skaters to teach.   With Trainer Academy your trainers will follow the same curriculum, have access to all the videos and have access to ask questions, clarification and receive help with struggling skaters. The best part is, training no longer falls solely on one person's shoulders.

When I first started coaching; getting a group of trainers on the same page and teaching the same things was complicated.  I would teach each new trainer what they needed to teach.  It was time consuming and most people forgot what I had shown them.  That's why I developed Trainer Academy.  With Trainer Academy this process has become streamlined. No more misunderstandings on what to teach or how to teach it, trainers & skaters follow the same curriculum and have access to the same videos.

Progression from one skill to the next.

Do you struggle with breaking skills down into understandable parts?

With the Urrk'n DerbyTrainer Academy program we teach you and your league how to break down the skills and build upon them. 

Each practice is scheduled to be repeated so your new recruits get the muscle memory for each skill.

What our Trainers Say:


Each video breaks down the skill to be learned in a step by step tutorial and builds upon the next video. The learned skill becomes fluid because I am not just showing  what I am doing to perform the skill but I am breaking it down according to the videos and the skaters are really responding."

I had been through fresh meat programs with three leagues and the training was hit and miss.  Urrk'n Derby gives leagues a way to make sure that they are giving their recruits a consistent base skill set.  We have had less turn over and more prepared skaters since using the program."
