Kid Block Blogs

I'm Kid Block. Roller derby skater, coach and enthusiast. Skating for the London Rollergirls (Brawling) + Team England. All opinions are my own.

Book me to Coach Your League

I have a huge passion for coaching and I’m eager to spread the derby knowledge that I have gained while coaching and captaining to other leagues throughout Europe.

I can:

  • tailor a session or bootcamp specific to your needs (beginner/intermediate/advanced/mixed ability)
  • study game footage that you provide beforehand to ensure the session is solely focused on your league’s requirements
  • provide off skate Q&A type strategy classes/footage viewings
  • provide off skate coaching and captaining mentoring in the form of a sit down with the coaches and captains of your league
  • provide one on one coaching (including footage watching and feedback)

If you are interested in hiring me for a session and would like to discuss availability and rates, please email me at:

I’d love to meet you!
