Fresh meat started just under a year ago (if I don’t count the first taster session where I didn’t even try a pair of skates on) and out of my cohort there are about 9 of us who’ve continued until now. 776 more words

Pre Mins

Pre mins skills so far

To be able to actually scrim at full contact/eventually be considered for a spot on the team, I have to pass the minimum skills that the WFDTA dictate (hence being called pre mins since I’m ‘pre minimum skills’). 266 more words

Pre Mins

Diary 14/08/16

Weak areas
  • Slipping backwards on my skates
  • Scrim-brain
  • Transitioning from a brace into a wall
  • Pushy jammer
Areas which sucked slightly less
