Product Description

About the Author

Punchy O’Guts is a mother, writer, skater, and derby coach who joined Maine Roller Derby six months after it was founded in March of 2006. One of the league’s pioneers, she skated competitively on the WFTDA-sanctioned all-star team (The Port Authorities), and has worked just about every position imaginable: league coach, event coordinator, marketing director, interleague liaison, sponsorship, webmaster, WFTDA rep, all-star team captain, and a member of the board of directors. She travels to leagues to guest coach and openly helps leagues and skaters with questions about skills, rules, running a derby league, or whatever the present issue might be. She's dedicated to the growth of the sport of roller derby and passionately offers her expertise and knowledge to anyone who needs it. Punchy earned a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts at Penn State University and an MFA in Creative Writing at the Stonecoast program at the University of Southern Maine. She grew up in southwestern Pennsylvania and moved to Portland, Maine in 2004 to pursue a career in journalism. Punchy wrote as a professional journalist (under her name Amy Martin) for more than five years for the Portland Phoenix, Face Magazine, Maine Switch, Portland Press Herald and Maine Today. She specialized in writing about local entertainment (music and theater), and left journalism to pursue a writing career that allowed her the freedom to write without limitation.

Amazing! 18 Feb. 2013
By Erinn McCann - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a must have for all fresh meat trainers. Punchy covers everything . This takes your fresh meat past just passing their skills test and it gives your league another much needed stage to add to your training.

As a new junior derby coach this was a great basic training tool. I like how it broke down various rules, practice times, and drills.

Perfect for training yourself or freshies 26 Dec. 2013
By alyssa whitham - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a coach on a very newly established league we weren't really sure how to go about training our fresh meat, having basically taught ourselves everything from YouTube. This book covers petty much everything you will need to know, I highly recommend. There are some things that are a little advanced for freshies, but that just means you have things you can teach further down the track.

Easy to follow with a lot of great information. I used it the first night I had it and the practice seemed to flow a little smoother.
