“Derbyfest was extremely well run, organized, and was catered 100% to the attendees. I highly recommend this clinic to all derby skaters of any level. Derbyfest easily made it into the Top Three list of all the clinics I have ever coached!”

“Thank you so much Derby Fest organizers, coaches and participants. I had an amazing weekend, learnt so much and took part in over 17hrs worth of classes and games. my mind is blown my big toes are swollen and I couldn’t be happier.”

“Derby Fest is honestly the best coaching event I’ve attended and every year it just gets better! I find it so refreshing. Every time after attending my skating, teamwork, and individual skills improve significantly. I work hard all year round to improve but that doesn’t replace the awesome coaching and tips that can help you lift your game to the next level.”
