Left Turn Coaching Clinic in Fresno Attracts Skaters From Across the State
Sunday March 22nd, 2015

On the weekend of March 7-8 at their home the Slab at Full Circle Brewing Co. Central California Area Derby hosted skaters from all around California, including leagues such as the VTown Derby Dames, Sintral Valley Derby Girls, Peninsula Roller Girls, Wine Town Rollers, LA Derby Dolls, San Fernando Valley Roller Derby, and the West Coast Derby Knockouts for an entire weekend of training with world class coaches Mercy Shammah and Shaina Serelson.
The weather was warm and sunny and allowed for two full days of non-stop skating and instruction. The skills, techniques, and strategies shared by Left Turn Coaching will surely help to improve the skill and competition of roller derby across the state of California. They focused on teaching skills that are new and at the forefront of the ever-evolving roller derby world. While it was extremely hard work, everyone who attended the clinic was dedicated and attentive, getting the most they could out of the 12+ hours of skating the schedule provided.
Thank you to Left Turn Coaching and to all of the skaters who joined us for a fine weekend of skating!
