Without you all, we would not have had such a successful UKROC!
UKROC was an amazing success, and the organisers would like to thank all the speakers and delegates who made it such a great weekend.
Over the course of the two days, over 50 leagues came together to learn, share ideas and make strides towards the future of our sport. We hope that everyone learned something that they can take back to their leagues, whether it’s coaching techniques, tools for conflict resolution, or just new contacts for games/scrimmages.
Well, that’s it. Tickets are no longer on sale, and everyone is now working flat out to finalise the plans for the weekend!
So, with ticket sales ending last night, we bring you a new announcement.. the National Roller Derby Museum will be attending UKROC!
Catherine Hemelryk (Rebel Rebel) is attending on the Saturday to bring an exhibition from the NRDM. This is super exciting and will have loads of amazing things for us to see.
All attendees can get involved with the NRDM too…
