Team and League Coaching

Connect and improve your team and league by creating specific goals and concentrated plans. 

League/Team Coaching Packages

Whether you are looking to take your training to a more competitive level or just looking for a more experienced coach to help you with training, I am here! Depending on your budget, I can travel to you and coach in person or I can work with you online. Or both! First, I'll listen to determine what you need. Then, we'll work together to figure out what's best for you and your league or team. 

In-Person Coaching

For in-person coaching, depending on schedules, I can travel for a few days or a few weeks. I'll coach derby clinics and your practices, along with scrimmages or games - there are many options! Before I arrive, I'll work with your head coach and/or coaching committee and observe footage to learn about your league/team. I use this information to diagnose areas for improvement, focusing on all aspects: skating skills, plays and strategies, rosters and lineups, practice schedules, group dynamics, goal-planning, and leadership. While I'm visiting, my time is yours! I typically spend a significant amount of time working with coaching committees while visiting. We discuss issues like dealing with difficult skaters (those ones who don't want to listen), choosing rosters and playtime, planning tryouts, dealing with burnout, figuring out when to take an off-season, and all those issues that create league drama. Check out the testimonials page to read about what the experiences other coaches have had working with me.

Online Coaching

For online coaching/mentoring, (as with in-person coaching)  I'll work with your head coach and/or coaching committee and observe footage to learn about your league/team and use this information to diagnose areas for improvement. I will develop a training curriculum that works for your league/team and write all your practice itineraries. During the time period you choose, I will guide you through coaching practices and dealing with issues that arise. Also like with in-person coaching, I spend time with coaches helping them deal with the typical issues that derby coaches deal with. This is an excellent option for new coaches who are looking for a mentor or coaches looking for guidance in developing a training curriculum.

What Coaches Have Said About The Online Coaching Package:

Words cannot express what Punchy’s Detailed Six-Month Training Curriculum did for me personally and for our league.  We were a group of women that had never played roller derby but now have a scrimmage eligible team within 6 months. Punchy first took the time to talk to us and learn what it was our league needed before developing our curriculum. Her detailed practice itineraries gave us the information we needed to safely learn to play derby from the very beginning. Punchy’s personal guidance and encouragement not only made it possible for me to train skater skills I had never learned myself, but also made me believe and know that I could do it. And her advice was always spot on. It was amazing to get her feedback each week from our videos on our progress and where we needed to improve both in skating and training. Punchy gave an incredible amount of time, energy and knowledge to our league and I will forever be grateful. I sincerely admire Punchy as she is truly an inspiration in my life both on and off the track. - Scandalous Scorpio, Androscoggin Fallen Angels   

I started coaching roller derby with zero experience. We did the 6 month online package and haven't stopped moving forward. We have been steadily moving up in WFTDA ranking. Punchy taught me the skills to help run a successful league. She built our training plans and got us on track. The structure she uses has helped my training committee develop effective practice plans. We are stronger than ever. - Punch E. McBeardfist, Chemical Valley Rollergirls, West Virginia Allstars

What Skaters Participating in Online Coaching Have Said

As a developing league, we utilized Punchy’s curriculum to train and successfully develop our first scrimmage eligible team of skaters, all of whom were new to the sport. The training was implemented with a multi-faceted approach, ensuring that the coaches were well-supported in their role; whereby, feedback was provided in a manner that highlighted achievements, as well as addressed areas in need of development. As a skater, the program allowed me to focus on the development of fundamentals, which were imperative to subsequent skill-building. I have a sincere amount of respect for Punchy as a coach, as well as a player who leads by example on the track; with her experience in both of these roles, she truly is a subject-matter expert of this awesome sport. I believe that any player or coach, who has the opportunity to implement her program, will be fundamentally-grounded and a more successful player or coach as a result. I extend my sincerest and deepest gratitude, as her program has assisted in building our team, our league, and I, as a player; directly due to the combined efforts of Punchy and our coaches, my team and I are preparing for our first bout! - Saint Hooligan of Androscoggin Fallen Angels

When I started Punchy's program I truly wondered if it would be possible for me to even just skate backward. Having just completed the fresh meat program I now feel confident not only that I have the basic skills needed to play this sport, I feel like I have be taught how to continue learning and improving myself as an athlete. Each practice covers small incremental steps with introductions to new skills, and every practice I saw and felt improvements in my skating and skills. This program should be standard to any league. Thank you Punchy O'Guts! - Seitanic Beast of Androscoggin Fallen Angels
