Interactive Video is a teaching method that Smarty uses in which video is incorporated into the training session. This is done in two ways.
The first way is that your league films the session (most leagues use their phone and have one non-skating member do all the filming for the night, but some get very fancy with their set-up).
The second way in which we use film is that your league members actually film one another doing drills, skills and maneuvers during the session. We use the footage to make real time adjustments on what we’re doing on the track. (It’s pretty rad to watch skaters learn from watching the footage, making adjustments and repeating the process.
The rate for this varies depending on the number of hours your league books
Coach Nadia Kean had coached Gotham Girls Roller Derby before I ever even put on a pair of skates. She has been instrumental in getting countless leagues and individual skaters started on the path to Roller Derby success around the world for over 10 years. Her skill both on and off the track made her an obvious choice for a leadership role on Team USA.
