We're moving into a new era of roller derby without minimum skill requirements! This means we can get more people involved in the sport and playing the sport more quickly. But what does that look like? Do we still do tests? Are laps gone forever?
This episode will be very beneficial to your team and league as an introduction to the new curriculum. Our guides on this quest are special guests who all worked on the curriculum as part of the WFTDA MSR Task Force. We dive into the history of the task force, the research into how other sports looked at the skill level of their players, the goals, the challenges, and answers to the frequently asked questions about the future of what roller derby will be.
