Bear City Roller Derby is pleased to announce the beginning of the ticket sale for the 2019 edition of The European Roller Derby Organizational Conference (EROC)!
When: January 31st (Thursday) until February 3rd (Sunday) 2019
What: Workshops on Thursday 31st & Friday 1st — Sessions on Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd
MORE IS MORE!
This year’s EROC is one day longer! That means more time, more sessions, more workshops, more sharing, meeting, networking and brainstorming, and more skating!
HIGHLIGHTED FOCUS: INCLUSIVITY.
We will approach a broad range of topics — covering every aspect of our community as usual — with special attention paid to how to make every single one of them inclusive.
Workshops and sessions will also be longer, so we will have more time to exchange ideas. We will also be including a Q&A at the end of every session to get the most out of each one.
EROC 2019 is 8 workshops and 20 sessions on…
- Inclusive practices and accessibility
- Whipping your finances into inclusive shape
- Inclusive officiating behaviour and mindset
- Low level harassment, aggression, consent, bystanders behaviour
- Officiating crew selection process. Sexism and discrimination
- Junior derby
- Open divisions and all-gender roller derby
- Coaching qualification
- Organisations psychology and sports psychology
- Longevity and building on experience
- Long lasting officiating
- Bout preparation: statistics and data analysis
…to name a few.
NOT ENOUGH? THERE’S MORE
- Round table: NGBs / National Teams and Governing Bodies
- The first WFTDA European Continental Cup feedback experience and better practises by the Blitz Dames, Birmingham
- Encounter with Skateistan: Best practices exchange on girls’ empowerment
- A League Fair: A space where leagues can present themselves and their merchandising during the weekend! Start by renting a stand (ask us!) where attendees can meet and greet your league.
- On Saturday we will host the EROC ALL STARS SCRIMMAGE for anybody who wants to meet on track! (sign up here!)
- On Sunday you can participate in Chicks in Bowls beginners’ sessions to learn how to approach bowls and take on the skate park! (sign up here!)
- And of course there will be get-together parties! Casual drinks on Thursday and serious dancing on Saturday!
…AND WE’RE NOT DONE!
EROC is happy to host a 2-day WFTDA Officiating Clinic on Saturday & Sunday, with sessions open for EROC attendees.
Are you convinced? The Super Early Bird Sale starts NOW and runs until December 31st
We also propose Soliprice tickets to those who need it. Tell us why inclusion is important to you and how you are going to bring these ideas back to your league and we will list you for a Soliprice ticket offered by BCRD!
