The TCRG family is growing. With the goal of bridging the gap between our fantastic (Top 20!) All-Stars and our highly-skilled house teams, TCRG is expanding to include a B-Team. Open to all skaters in the league, tryouts for the B-Team were held on Friday, January 16th and Sunday, January 18th, 2014.
Germaine Koh (f.k.a PLAYER 1) has been selected to represent the league as its first B-team coach. Previously the coach of the Riot Girls, Koh is looking to transfer her winning ways to the B-team. She brings to the team her experience as a TCRG All-Star player, a methodical approach to training and research, and a gentle fanaticism about fitness. Teaming up with Koh is Johnny Qwadd, who will act as the new team’s assistant coach. Qwadd has most recently worked with Team Canada as their Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Blood and Thunder World Cup, and plans to bring his immense skill sets of fitness and derby knowledge to the new team.
Tryouts for interested skaters involved a series of fitness and skills tests, designed to quantitatively and qualitatively assess each player’s skill set. Between the burpees and agility testing, hockey stops and blocking drills, the skaters were assessed by a panel of their peers. This panel consisted of one skater from each house team, a member of the All-Stars and the new team’s coach (Koh). Once the formalized tests were concluded, skaters were separated into two teams for a scrimmage. The goals of the scrimmage were to assess each skater’s jamming skills, jammer mental skills, track awareness & strategic knowledge, gameplay, communication, and teamwork.
Once the scores were tabulated and the assessments were in, TCRG welcomed, without further ado, the following to our new B team!
Annie Means Necessary
Bannock! at the Disco
Chic and Destroy
Epic Wheel Time
Great Big C
Mick E Knocks
The Great Gashby
Keep an eye out for B-Side games this season!
