Occasionally we have some news, requests, status updates, and such to share -- to keep the main blog clear of slightly irrelevant information we'll be posting all that other good stuff here!  Time-sensitive requests will be deleted once no longer applicable so any requests that you read here should always be pertinent.

By reader request we have added a tag called Small Group.  It will take a while to apply this tag to the drills in the archives but now you will be able to search for drills that are appropriate for practices with a small number of skaters present.  Hooray!

In addition, we are looking for someone to create an All Derby Drills app.  If you are interested and don't mind working for free stickers, please get in touch:

Finally, this is also a pre-announcement that there will soon be some changes made to the tabs.  You'll see a few of the less popular tabs disappear, and the biggest change is that we are adding a tab for Guest Coaching.  That's right--A.D.D. has guest coaching services available!  Keep your eyes peeled for more information about this.  If you just can't wait, shoot an e-mail to to inquire about guest coaching.

Thanks for reading!

Really exciting news, everyone!  Roller Derby Made in France is now featuring French translations of the drills on A.D.D.!  The blog is authored by Féroce Satine of Little City Roller Girls.  As the drills get translated we will be adding a link to each of the drills' own page so that you can easily navigate between the two versions of the drill.  You will know by the little French flag -symbol that the drill you are reading also has a French translation :)

Visit to see the translation project in progress!

A couple of new things have been added to the bar on the right!  First off, there is new label called "referee friendly drills" which is to indicate skater drills that provide referees a good chance to practice penalty calls, or skating on the inside of the track, or just in general develop the skills necessary for refereeing.  TestosteRon Jeremy has promised to go through the archives and apply the label appropriately to drills that have already been posted.  Also, a link to an online Tabata timer has been added for those of you who like to do Tabatas at practice.  If you don't know what it is, there is a simple description on the same page as the timer!  And did you know that you can download a Tabatas timer for a SmartPhone?  Whoa, we live in a plugged in world.

Alrighty, we have some wieners!  Tanya Hide of the Atlanta Rollergirls, Scary Only of the 709 Derby Girls, and Monica Orchard of the East Texas Bombers.  They will all be getting some sweet A.D.D. stickers in the mail very soon.

As it turns out, the contest was a little TOO good difficult, which is why only three winners were selected.  SO, what I'm going to do is this: Free stickers to anyone who e-mails allderbydrills at gmail dot com and gives feedback about the website!  Just say what you like/dislike/want more of/want less of/what your favorite drills are/what your mom thinks of the site, and you will be blessed with a shiny heart growing out of a skate to adorn your helmet with.

Congratulations Farmer Geddon of the Boston Derby Dames, winner of our "This ref was cooooold" -contest!  Many thanks to everyone else who participated.  Rest assured that we will have more contests in the future so there will be many more opportunities to win something fun & funky.

To get your name into the drawing you had to correctly guess which referee in our new referee hand signals video performed in -20°C weather.  The correct answer was Pandora Pandamonium, the referee standing in front of the famous Havis Amanda -statue in downtown Helsinki (fun trivia: it's the statue that Helsinki Roller Derby's logo is based on).  Although it was sunny it was *wicked cold* that day and we are all extremely impressed with Panda's skills and grit.  And many kudos to the other refs who were indeed pretty cold as well :)
