Focus: Pressure testing
The aim is to put all that’s been worked on in the session into application in a more derby like scenario.
Groups of 6: There will be two offence (who wear pivot panties), one jammer and three blockers. Have everyone else off track ready to go on. This drill requires the whole track. This can be done on skates or 'sock derby' style for rookies.
Get the skaters to line up in front of the jam line, except the jammer who lines up behind. Then run like a normal jam, call off at 2 minutes or after the jammer has completed a scoring pass. The offence should avoid passive offence, they are on the team of the jammer aiming to help them through.
As there is only one jammer on track this keeps the focus simpler, giving the blockers viewer things to focus on - which is why this is ideal for newer skaters.
Remember to recap offence if working with newer skaters - The offence should create holes in the wall that the jammer needs to find and target or by destroying the pack by goating an opposition blocker.
Referees will be needed to define the pack and call penalties. Preferably having one jammer ref to keep track of whether the jammer completes a scoring pass.
