Cause tonight we had a visitor, and not just some visitor,
Tara Armov from the L.A. Derby Dolls!! Skating for 7 years, she has to be the most experienced Roller Derby player we have ever had at our ADD practices.
Lucky for us, Tara is awesome, and she was more then happy to crack the whip on us.....
Practicing skills and learning new tactic pack moves and drills was just awesome! There is no other word I can use to describe that tonights practice: AWESOME!!
At one of the drills you had to push each other while skating, it's a balance exercise.
I was lucky enough to push Tara around, cause it's not very likely that it will ever happen for real! :p
Also we did a teamwork and communication drill, where you form a wall with 3 girls and you have one pivot. The pivot is the only one with it's eyes open and has to communicate to the wall of blockers and tell them what to do, cause they have their eyes closed. Well you can imagine how much fun this is! But also a very good pack communication exercise.
We did so much more, unbelievable how much information and training one person can transfer in a couple of hours!
We feel very privileged to have had her with us, so Tara thanks again!!!
And yeah, we do hate you now, but in the best way humanly possible. :)
