115 - NO MORE 27 IN 5???
In this episode, Coach Dan and I discuss the newly announced Vision and Objectives that have been released by the WFTDA concerning the future of Minimum Skill Requirements. New curriculum? No more official test?? Program recommended but not required?? What does the future of roller derby look like when the individual leagues determine qualifications for playing derby? What pressure does this put on coaches and leadership? Will more skaters come back to roller derby? Will there be favoritism? And biggest of all, does this mean NO MORE 27 IN 5?!?

111 - Building Relationships with your Teammates (The Animal Crossing episode)
That's right. This week, I'm talking about Animal Crossing: New Horizons. What effect does this video game have on perfectionists? How about coping with expectations vs reality? How does this game help us with asking others for help? What does this game teach about forming and building relationships? What are YOU doing in your roller derby league that makes people want to move off your island? What can you do to make your island (league) more welcoming to others?

110 - FUN vs SERIOUS...A Roller Derby Struggle
Some of us want to be super duper serious in roller derby and achieve way hard. Some of us don't want to play this sport unless it's fun. How do we find the balance?

109 - I'm Great and You're Not...Level Up Your Team
If roller derby goes away, are we still friends? Or is this all our relationship is built on?  This week's podcast starts off examining different types of relationships and their foundation. Then our main focus is the FIVE stages of organizational culture that determine what you can achieve together. How do you overcome trust issues, apathy, and sarcasm? How do you put aside egos and constant squabbling to unite for the good of all? How can you use a crisis or common enemy to come together?

PUNCHY O'GUTS Special Guest! - 105 - Inclusive Coaching and Return to Play Training
This episode, I spoke with Punchy O'Guts of 4EYES Coaching + Publications. Punchy is invested in using positivity, compassion, and forward-thinking to connect with, challenge, and inspire athletes. Punchy has published FIVE manuals for training those in roller derby as well as several articles in Five on Five Magazine.  This conversation focuses on a curriculum for safely returning to training on the track. What should we watch for? How do we know when our skaters are ready for the next stage? (apart from WFTDA guidelines, of course) Then we turn to the topic of Inclusive Coaching. To quote Punchy's blog: "Coaches have an incredible amount of power. It’s so important to acknowledge the power we have and use our leadership role to make derby culture more inclusive and safe. We can make intentional decisions so that our behavior, decisions, and language are not focused on creating a space that is only safe for white, cis folks. We must actively choose to create a space that is inclusive and safe for marginalized folks." 📷by Scott Douglas Hemenway Visit Punchy O'Guts at http://punchyoguts.com/ for blog posts on Return to Play Training and Inclusive Coaching Facebook Punchy O'Guts Page Instagram @punchyoguts Twitter @punchyoguts Visit Roller Derby Athletics at rollerderbyathletics.com/plans.

104 - Racism in Roller Derby: Don't Pass the Star
We need to address racism in ourselves and in our teams and leagues. Don't juke around it. Break through the wall. It's a harder path and can be really uncomfortable at times, but we can come out stronger on the other side. Do the work. In this episode, I talk about the broader meaning of words we have heard for decades. We can't go further in our pursuit of Anti-Racism in roller derby and our lives until we understand more about what these words mean. I'll be sharing a couple examples of what this looks like in roller derby and want to give a trigger warning in advance for any BIPOC who don't have the space to deal with that right now. I believe changing our systems and way of thinking about racism has to take place before we can go on a mission of recruitment for people of color to join our leagues. We can’t bring them in until we take some meaningful steps to make our house better before we invite people over. There are cracks in the foundation and we’ve been throwing a rug over it and not noticing they exist. Then I’ll go over some examples of how to approach meaningful interactions to help correct these problematic situations one on one. How do we talk to someone when they say something racially problematic? And how can we receive this information graciously when we make a mistake ourselves? Let's hold each other accountable and move forward together.

BALLER SHOT CALLER Special Guest! - 101 - Racism and Call-out Culture in Roller Derby
This episode is NOT sponsored by Mota. “Don’t stop having conversations because it’s uncomfortable. I’ve been uncomfortable 32 years of my life. It’s ok for white people to be uncomfortable for the next couple years if it means that everyone is going to be equal and not judged because my skin is different... Social Media has given people this keyboard warrior mentality where they just say awful things about human beings. Ok, this person messed up and they’re trying to remedy it. NOPE! Once this person, always this person and there’s no rehabilitation and you’re awful and you should jump off a cliff. What in the world has our community and culture come to?...I think the issue is that we’re calling people out with no resolution.” Please share this episode...the message is really important. This week's topics are racism and call-out culture in the world of roller derby. The special guest is Baller Shot Caller. Baller has played for Gold Coast Roller Grrls, Atlanta Roller Derby, and Team USA Roller Derby and has been voted as captain for all three. She excels at jamming and blocking and often plays as pivot and is a traveling coach with Tuff Love Coaching.  📷by Zakas Photography Follow Baller Shot Caller on Instagram @ballershotcaller143 or on FB at Baller Shot Caller or Tess Harrison.  If you are looking for places to donate, you can support bail funds in your city by consulting the Community Justice Exchange's National Bail Fund Network, which keeps a database on local efforts or donating directly to National Bail Out.

My Gratitude Letter to Bonnie D. Stroir - A Very Special 100th Episode (The Puppy Talk and Leadership Lessons)
To celebrate our very special 100th episode, I am giving an audio letter of gratitude to Bonnie D. Stroir. She inspired me on my path to becoming a better athlete, teammate, leader, and human being. I met Bonnie D. Stoir in 2013 about a month before she retired from roller derby after skating and coaching for over a decade. Bonnie D. Stroir was the first full time traveling roller derby coach and she spread her lessons all over the world, but it was more than just skating. It was about bettering yourself as a person in interpersonal communication and conflict management, treating yourself with compassion and improving your ability to learn, and developing leadership skills to inspire others and pulling the greatest potential out of the people you lead. In this episode, along with my sincere thanks, I am sharing lessons I learned from her that made the biggest impact on developing myself and others over the years to become as awesome as we could be in one lifetime. When we met, I was at a crossroads in my derby career and wasn't sure if I'd make it another season. She opened my eyes to new ways of leading, communicating, and learning that gave me hope for the future again. If our paths hadn't crossed, I don't know if this podcast would exist.  BONNIE NEEDS HELP - Visit the GoFundMe Page for Bonnie D.

099 - The Science of Gratitude
People love complaining. It seems harmless, it connects us as human beings when we can vent to each other or agree with each other on social media. Venting seems to make us feel better. It makes us feel less alone. But what does it really do? You might get a positive boost from that connection but what happens afterward?  We can improve our health and wellbeing, enhance our relationships, encourage healthy sleep, heighten feelings of connectedness and so much more...through the practice of gratitude. I'm going to take you through the science based research on the topic and all the benefits and share ways to express gratitude that go beyond the homework assignment of keeping a journal and are more sustainable for your life. 📷by Jess Whipple/Photobomber PT4W is LIVE on Twitch on Fridays at 8pm EST.

098 - The Future of Roller Derby with Double H (Executive Director of the WFTDA)
Releasing this special episode with Double H a day early! In this episode, we discuss the future of roller derby and the big questions that are always being asked. Should roller derby be an Olympic sport? Will roller derby become a professional sport? Will there be a future where I tell someone I play roller derby and they DON'T ask if I elbow people? What's with the pay gap for women's sports and how is the pandemic affecting this? And the big one -- what does the return to play plan look like and when can we start playing roller derby again? Erica Vanstone (Double H) is the Executive Director of the WFTDA. Erica previously acted as the organization’s Chief Media Officer, where she developed the mission-forward broadcast program, WFTDA.tv. After working in the film and television industries for more than a decade, Erica began a career in nonprofit management and sports.

Getting Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable (RUNBACK)
RUNBACK EPISODE! I’m releasing a fan favorite from past every two weeks in case you didn’t hear it the first time or might be feeling like you need re-listen or want to share it with a friend. I picked this episode because it was one of the first on the list of episodes I recommended in episode 84 (GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD!) for helping with improving mindset. How do you make something that is uncomfortable for you into something that's ok? Being ok with looking silly? Being ok with failure? Being ok with falling? This episode focuses on how to break through discomfort to become stronger, more agile, more well rounded as a roller derby player and a human being. Get comfortable with any skill, any type of floor, any temperature, any position on the track! WE NOW HAVE A PATREON PAGE!

SMARTY PANTS Special Guest! - 083 - Positive Communication & Coaching Indicators
This week, we are talking about communication and coaching indicators with Nadia Kean (Smarty Pants) of the Strong Athletic Podcast and clothing brand. How can coaches and players more effectively communicate with each other? What should a coach look for to see if a drill is working? We even go on a tangent discussing and questioning the effectiveness of the 27-in-5 time trial test for minimum skills in roller derby. Nadia has been teaching and coaching athletes for nearly 20 years. Nadia started in banked track roller derby (taking on the derby name Smarty Pants) with Texas Roller Derby (TXRD), then moved into flat track roller derby with Texas Rollergirls (TXRG), and competed at the highest levels at WFTDA Championships and at multiple World Cups as a part of Team USA Roller Derby.  Nadia is currently working on a book on coaching (which we talk about) as well as the Strong Athletic Podcast which focuses on many aspects of being in sports including building the relationship between coaches and athletes. The goal of Strong Athletic is to get humans into sports and to help keep them in sports. The clothing brand is built upon the principle that you don't need anyone's permission to be an athlete and you can celebrate being Strong Athletic by wearing the words proudly across your body.

075 - Pregnancy, Returning to Derby, and Finding Balance in Life as Parents and Skaters with Special Guests Liz and Siren
In this episode, I asked for the help of two of my teammates -- Lizzy Luscious and Siren Song to ask about their experience going through pregnancy, returning to training for roller derby, and finding balance in their new lives as parents. What was it like telling the team? Did they step away from derby or stay close by? How quickly did they return to skating?  Roller derby isn't every part of our lives, but it DOES make our lives better. You can carve out time for you and time for family. If you set boundaries, you really CAN have it all.

This episode was recorded immediately after the Saturday night game at the 2019 WFTDA International Championship in Montreal, Gotham vs VRDL where Gotham emerged victorious in a close, exciting match up! We also talk about her personal mission to stop the public stigma of living with mental illness and bring awareness by encouraging others to keep talking.  Miss Tea Maven is an all around great person (and pretty funny too!).

What are you THANKFUL for in roller derby? Tell me! :-)
Want to be on the podcast? I want to hear from YOU!  This time of year in the United States, we take a moment to stop and appreciate the things we are thankful for in our lives...like roller derby! Roller derby has changed our lives in so many ways: physically, mentally, emotionally...we've gotten to meet new people and go new places. What are you thankful for in derby this year? A person? A favorite piece of gear or pair of skates? A shark punching moment? It could be anything that is special to you. There are plenty of ways to share your derby thankful message (try to keep it a minute or less): 1. Voicemail: Leave me a voice message by going to this link on Safari web browser: https://anchor.fm/power-through-the-4th-whistle or look up our show on the Anchor app.  2. Use your phone: Take a Voice memo or video using your phone and send it to me in a FB message: https://www.facebook.com/powerthru4thwhistle/ or e-mail power4thwhistle@gmail.com. I can take the audio off it no problem. 3. Social Media: Post your video on social media and tag @power4thwhistle on Instagram or Twitter or our FB page on FB with the #powergratitude. If you want to make sure I found it, send me a lil message. ;-)  4. DM: If none of these sound appealing, just send a written message on FB or e-mail or DM on Twitter @power4thwhistle or Instagram @power4thwhistle. Deadline is the Tuesday night before Thanksgiving. That way I can edit it together on Wednesday and have it ready for Thursday. :-) This is our second audience participation episode and I’m super psyched!

055 - WFTDA Bracket Predictions for North America East Continental Cup!
PLAYOFF SEASON continues!! Time to do another bracket prediction episode! ;-) I'll be getting in the car and driving 12 hours to Pennsylvania to announce at the cup, but for now I'll tell you all about about the seasons these 12 teams have had this year, players to watch, and if you want a preview of what to expect, I picked a game that is available for streaming for each team that really shows what they're about and what they can do in a close match up. This is an interesting weekend and there are some notable roster changes from the regular season that might impact the results and team chemistry during this tournament.  It's cup season, these games could all go either way and the cup bracket is ripe with opportunities for upsets!  If you're at the tournament, come by and say hi! I'll try to post what I'm up to on the socials. Fill out YOUR bracket now at: https://derbyontoast.com/wftda-bracket-challenge Buy your watch pass for the weekend: https://wftda.tv/watch-pass/ We are collecting questions for an upcoming Q&A episode, contact me at any of the stuff listed below!

054 - Change Your Self Limiting Beliefs (with special guest!)
This episode, I was joined by Grant Porteous, Owner/Life Coach & Consultant at Intentional Life Coaching & Consulting to learn about how to conquer and change self limiting beliefs. It turns out there is a LOT of science behind our ability as humans to rewire our brains and set ourselves on new neural pathways to success. We form 90% of our beliefs by age 7 based on experience. You have an experience, you assess the experience, reinforce it with an emotion, and come to a decision or belief about the experience which then becomes wired into your brain and informs your other experiences going forward depending on how impactful it was. Over time, you will see more and more experiences as aligning with your already developed belief and reinforcing it and not notice the evidence that goes against your belief. (Ex: "I'm no good at relationships; Dogs don't like me; Things work out for other people but not for me; If you want something done right, you must do it yourself, etc.) But NO MORE! It doesn't have to BE this way! We are going to cover FOUR STEPS to replace negative beliefs that limit us with positive beliefs that will allow action and give us room to grow and learn. We also talk a bit about visualization as an important way to cement that new vision of what you want in your mind. Have a question for Grant? E-mail grant@grantporteous.com. 📷by ©Mark Sheehan 2012 (This photo perfectly captured how much confidence I had about jamming in 2012, how much I wish I had known how to change my beliefs back then!)

051 - MVP Psychology
What does an MVP look like? What are the qualities we can all agree on? What are the reasons your opponent might pass you over for someone else? Is awarding MVPs an outdated practice? Is this a "BS award" that doesn't mean anything as some people like to say? Or is this still a worthy goal players can aspire to as a benchmark in their roller derby journey? This episode does a deep dive into the five factors other teams consider when choosing MVPs at the end of a game PLUS four ways you can increase your chances of becoming an MVP yourself if this is your goal.

043 - 7 Ways to Lose Your Team's Trust
Coach Dan returns in this episode! Together we discuss 7 big ways to lose your team's trust (the 7 Deadly Sins of Coaching if you will). Trust is not something you automatically get when you decide to become a coach. Trust has to be earned. And it can be easily lost if you lose your way and slip up. We'll discuss the flip side, how to avoid these pitfalls and honestly communicate with the members of your team. Next week I am asking for audience participation and we are discussing Bout Day Rituals!

Roller Derby Thoughts - 037 - Concussions & Career Threatening Injuries
Continuing the conversation from last week, we are talking about major injuries that limit your ability to do anything. We do a deep dive into concussions. And we are going to talk about your mindset if you decide to mount a comeback or step away. There are no wrong answers here, it is whatever is the right thing to do for you and your body, no judgement. I am going to give you stories of people going through some really major injuries and either coming out the other side pursuing something different or defying the odds and returning to the sport they love. (I go into the stories of Tommaso Ciampa and Daniel Bryan at length and included links to short videos below that tell their stories in a beautiful, emotional way if you'd like to learn more.)  It's going to get real and heavy at times, but I believe it's an important topic and will have value to someone.  Turning a Setback into a Comeback: https://medium.com/@hauntedflowerreviews/turning-a-setback-into-a-comeback-983f7661eff3 Inside Tommaso Ciampa's neck surgery: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XFL11cQf0s  Tommaso Ciampa opens up about his injury: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PM0mtTMfFhY  Daniel Bryan's comeback: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHobbiH4I4g ("It's wonderful that you're grateful, but you need to fight for your dreams.")  Photo by Soul Collector  Want to know how you can support the podcast?

LADY TRAMPLE Special Guest! - 035 - BRAVERY
Lady Trample is a special guest on this episode!! The topic this week is Bravery. Bravery is feeling the fear and doing it anyway. Today we are going to talk a lot about responding to fear, how to combat fear, and even which risks are worth taking and which aren’t. Sports can bring out the best in people. You can learn to overcome your self doubts and fears and let your light shine brightly. You end up inspiring others whether you know it or not. But bravery can be small everyday things too. (🎼 "I wanna see you be brave...." 🎼)  A little more about our special guest:  Lady Trample is the founder of Chicks in Bowls. She is an exceptional roller derby jammer who started with Pirate City Rollers, competed in multiple playoffs and championship games for Victorian Roller Derby League, and recently transferred to Denver Roller Derby. She was awarded MVP at the 2017 WFTDA Championship. She played for Aotearoa Roller Derby at the 2018 Roller Derby World Cup where she was named Tournament Fan Favorite.

Roller Derby Thoughts - 034 - BEING COMPETITIVE - Dance of the Doomed, Success Disease, and having a Chip on your Shoulder
This week's topic is BEING COMPETITIVE. Avoiding the Dance of the Doomed, Success Disease, and how having a Chip on your Shoulder can be an asset. More of a tough love direction this time. Warning: some ranting ensues! This episode addresses three types of situations and how you can get yourself and/or your team back into a competitive mindset so you can give your all and sleep soundly that night. Give a fox (a cuddly baby fox ;-) ) about being competitive.

Roller Derby Thoughts - 033 - "It's about the TEAM. The TEAM, the TEAM, the TEAM."
"Your team is only as strong as your weakest skater and how your league treats its weakest skaters says a lot about your league." I heard this statement earlier this week and it's been bouncing around in my brain ever since. Sometimes leagues focus so hard on chasing a dream, a number on a website that says how good they are, that it's a challenge to bring others up with them. And then when turnover inevitably happens, they don't have the next people ready to join the A travel team. More teams are addressing this now with a mixed charter combining A and B levels in larger leagues, but many are still stuck with this problem. And for smaller leagues who will never have many people to pull from, it can mean nearly starting over anytime a handful of people have to step away at once.  This episode is a deep dive mostly into the perspective of a small to mid-size league where I've had the most experience and the tough lessons learned along the way. I share a couple stories of skaters that have inspired me with their dedication. And I talk in depth about how we work to reach skaters of multiple skill levels and what we have learned along the way to value every individual who is a part of our league. 📷 Crow's Feet Photo & Design We love roller derby and talking about roller derby!

Debuting a new theme song for co-hosted episodes! Coach Dan and Jackie go back and forth between perspectives of coach, captain, and skater about feedback. How should you ask for it? Who should give feedback and when? How often is too much? And lastly continuing in our theme lately, how do we receive feedback without taking criticism as a blemish on our character? How can we rise above cases of poorly communicated feedback? THANK YOU to everyone who has been sharing this podcast, it is very appreciated and is making a difference!
