Rogue has been coaching Roller Derby for the last 4 years, across Europe and beyond. Being a Jammer, Rogue’s favourite subject to coach is jamming. “I like to approach jammer coaching with a new and fresh insight, dissecting game play moments and looking at smart jammer decisions. It’s not just about skilful skating, you got to use your derby smarts and just as much strategic thought as you do blocking .” Rogue also enjoys coaching many other subject matters for example Coaching for coaches, team work and offence. Naturally fitness for roller derby is also a well covered topic.
Heres what some skaters had to say about Rogue’s coaching
“Rogues bootcamp upgraded our jammer tools and gave us an new sharp view for jamming.
She got me thinking outside of my own style of gameplay and opened my mind to all the other opportunities I have as a jammer.
Definitely bang for your buck.”

Jammer for Helsinki Roller Derby All-Star
“Rogue came to deliver a couple of jammer focussed sessions with Glasgow Roller Derby recently and I found it extremely useful – as someone who has pretty much only jammed since I started skating in 2008, I can honestly say that everything she taught me was new and fresh. I feel like my jammer ‘toolbox’ has been upgraded and I’m really excited to keep developing the new skills and mindset she taught us. Rogue had a lot to live up to as we’ve got a brilliant bunch of coaches here in GRD, but she showed herself to be an inspirational, flexible and relevant coach who was really approachable.”
