BRUTE

After completing our fresh meat programme in 2014, Brute has gone from fresh meat graduate to LRR All-Star blocker and Team Scotland skater, selected for the final 20 to compete in the 2018 World Cup. In recent years she has had experience of coaching our fresh meat programme and our All Stars travel team. Brute became a strong, advanced skater in a short amount of time by attending all of the boot camps hosted by a wide range of leagues and giving it her all in training sessions with LRR and now Team Scotland. As a teacher in the real world, Brute brings lots of structure to each session she coaches and ensures maximum time is spent on skates “doing the derby”. She enjoys finding ways of engaging and inspiring people to find their own strengths.

Specialities: wall building; effective bracing; recycling; communication; on track awareness

“I love watching people try new skills, and get the light bulb moment when it clicks. My favourite is when teams give open, honest feedback so we can build and tweak as we go, to fit their specific skill set and team goals.”

DAN GLEIBITZ

Dan Gleibitz has been involved in roller derby in one way or another since 2009 and began bench coaching in 2013 with the Milton Keynes Roller Derby Quads of War. Dangles has a relationship focused approach to Bench Coaching, ensuring that communication and focus are prioritised. That coupled with extensive experience as an announcer means he brings the double threat of derby experience and personal coaching to the LRR bench.
