So, after the excitement of hearing what’s happening on Saturday, how would you like to hear some more about the Sunday sessions? Yes? We thought so!
Sunday brings us a mixture of sessions – with a good chunk of focus on YOUR league and how to improve it through good management and sound organisation. Starting with some cosy face to face league sessions, separately tailored for both established and newer UK leagues, you will be invited to facilitated discussion groups to enable some tips and constructive advice swapping.
We are also really excited to announce that we will also be bringing you a whole host of information about Junior Roller Derby! This will include sessions on the legalities of setting up leagues, panel led discussion to facilitate discussion about the growth and organisation of Junior Derby and a chance for leagues with Junior Derby focus to have some face to face time. This is an amazing opportunity both for existing Junior Derby leagues and leagues aspiring to expand into this area.
Even more excitingly, UKRDA Directors and the team bringing you the British Champs in 2015 will be leading a session to discuss Tournament Organisation in the UK. This is set to be an absolutely incredible session, where they not only want to give loads of really invaluable information, but also gather our views on Tournament Organisation. This will really help push tournament hosting in the UK to the next level, and could make a huge impact on UK roller derby as a whole.
We also are excited about Bette Noir (LRG Director), who will be heading up an indispensable seminar to share her wealth of experience on future proofing your league and how to manage growth.
Officials have not been forgotten about in Day 2 – we have a series of information sessions about WFTDA Certification and developments with the UKRDA Officials recognition certification process and we also set aside a chunk of time to dedicate to a Rules Q&A for everyone – officials and skaters!
Other sessions that might tickle your fancy on Day 2 are Bout Production and Filming tips, Announcer workshop, developing successful sponsorship partnerships, and the chance for the men’s league delegates to have some face to face time in a facilitator led discussion group.
Sunday night brings you a choice once more – some delegate networking in the bar, or to join in with the Women only scrimmage.
We’re still finalising additional sessions for each of the days of UKROC but we hope there are a good few sessions for everyone in the mix just now!
Bear in mind – sessions might be moved from Saturday to Sunday or vice versa – these are the sessions but the timetable is not set in stone!
