    Abstract

    Modern roller derby is a predominately female driven full contact sport. A relatively new and evolving sport, players are yet to benefit from recent advances in wearable technologies. This paper reports on our initial investigations into player attitudes towards the use of technology as a training aid. Our survey results highlight broad support for the development of a wearable training device. Over 300 participants identified the skills they want help with improving and provided some initial feedback on the appropriateness of feedback modalities and location of a wearable training device. We end the paper by introducing our first interaction prototype, TapTrain, that allows skaters to access feedback on their technique while skating.
