Guest blogging: Violent Bob

Our next guest blogger is a man I've had the pleasure of sharing many a pint with and a coach who I really look forward to going head-to-head with: Violent Bob.

Violent Bob has been Head Coach of the Dublin Roller Girls since January 2010. 2011 is set to be a big year for the DRG, as they face their first bouting season beginning this month, and also for Violent Bob personally, as he has recently been named the Head Coach for Team Ireland in the upcoming Blood and Thunder Roller Derby World Cup.

Violent Bob comments: "As a young league, we've been so lucky to have some amazing skaters and coaches join us for training sessions, and so for me it's an honour to be asked to pass on to A.D.D. what we've learned in the last year, and particularly the drills we've tweaked to suit our own needs."

When not coaching, he is also working on improving his reffing (he refs as Cheat-Seeking Whistle -- "will travel for beer!"), he is the resident whiskey nerd for Jameson Irish Whiskey at their visitor centre, he plays bass, and he is a huge American Football fan ("Go Packers!").

During the next couple of weeks Violent Bob will be sharing a few of the Dublin Roller Girls' favorite drills with us here on A.D.D.! We're really looking forward to reading about some of this World Cup Head Coach's training secrets :)
