Off-Skates Agility for Roller Derby

Agility 101 for Roller Derby Athletes

Anyone can rip content off of social media and throw together a workout – but there is an entire field of exercise science dedicated to motor learning and skill acquisition. Speed, agility, and quickness are all discrete skills with a little transfer – if any - from one to the other. And Conditioning is specific to the desired cardio respiratory and physiological adaptations required by the client/sport.

Collectively these concepts in combination with concepts from kinesiology, skeletal muscle physiology and biological systems theory of adaptation are strategically combined in a comprehensive program, designed to elicit specific adaptations and responses from the client/athlete.

You can throw some exercises together but very few people understand what they are doing. This often leads to maladaptive responses and potential injury. .. .

I’ve talked about the grind culture-you can rip exercises and grind all day going nowhere because, well, you need a plan. You need structure.

That’s why I've created this course to give you some guidance on how to structure your off-skates agility sessions as well as some of the roller-derby specefic drills we use at ENG.

The great news is you'll have lifetime access to this course - you'll get all the updates and new lessons as we continue to grow and evolve skills and concepts as they pertain to the ever-changing world of roller derby!

As a former NCAA DII track and XC athlete I have personally experienced what it takes to achieve performance driven results. I supplemented that experience with rigorous academic work in pre-medicine (B.Sc. minor in chemistry) and Kinesiology (M.Sc.) studies and am a certified strength and conditioning specialist (CSCS). Over the last decade I have worked as speed and strength and conditioning coach for various sports teams and continue to teach as adjunct faculty in exercise science at Scottsdale Community College.

Most notably I served as the Head SC for men's football from 2012 - 2015 helping see the team to the 2013 Conference and Bowl Championships. In 2019, I was hired as the assistant strength coach for the Arizona Hotshots of the former AAF. I currently own and operate a training studio, Engard Athletics, in Tempe, AZ.
