Roller derby is an assertive team sport which is played on roller skates and requires large amounts of skill, agility and flexibility. This session delves into the world of roller derby and what's necessary for team success. We'll look at such areas as diversity, the importance of sticking to the rules and whether hybrid skates could ever work. We'll consider what lessons there are for the agile world and whether we seem to be learning them. Most importantly, you'll learn lots about roller derby and there'll be plenty of photos of the sport in action!
