LOCATIONS AND PRACTICE TIMES

Practices are held on Mondays & Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30 pm at Premier Event Center located at 1165 S. Stemmons Freeway, Lewisville, Texas 75067.  All practices are open to all members.

Our practice calendar is broken up into three semesters annually.  Spring Semester is January thru May; Summer Semester is June thru August, and Fall Semester is September thru December.  The semester calendar will be published in advance of registration for each semester and will indicate practice dates, holidays, assessments, game nights, and scheduled bouts.  Occasionally, practices are cancelled for holidays or special events so please consult the published semester calendar regularly to know those dates in advance. 

In the event a scheduled practice is cancelled for weather conditions or some other unforeseen reason, every effort will be made to notify members in advance by posting on the member Facebook page and if necessary, individual communications directly to parents.  If you have a question regarding the practice schedule, please check the member Facebook page, email GM@rollingrebellion.com or call 469-630-1260.

Please note that practice times and locations are subject to change.  Please notify gm@rollingrebellion.com prior to attending your first practice so we will be prepared to receive you.

EQUIPMENT

Every skater on the track must have Quad (no inline) skates, elbow pads, wrist guards, kneepads, a helmet, and mouth guard.  Rolling Rebellion has limited "loaner" gear for first time attendees (except mouth guards) but you will be expected to purchase your own safety equipment within a reasonable timeframe.  Loaner gear is utilized at your own risk.  Skate and gear packages may be purchased from Interskate Skate Shop in Lewisville, Resurrection Skates in Denton, or from individuals or vendors, locally or online.  All protective gear must be worn during all skating activities. 

SKILL LEVELS

Roller Derby experience is not required.  We will teach you the skills necessary to play.  All skaters wishing to play competitively will be required to attain "bout assessed" status.  This is achieved by completing and passing the required JRDA Level I, Level II, and Level III skills/safety test and a written rules test. 

DUES

Dues for the 2018-2019 season are as follows:

Fall Semester 2018 Dues for Full Time Skaters - $225.00
Fall Semester 2018 Dues for Part Time Skaters - $120.00

Spring Semester 2019 Dues for Full Time Skaters - $275.00
Spring Semester 2019 Dues for Part Time Skaters - $145.00

Summer Semester 2019 Dues for Full Time Skaters - $150.00
Summer Semester 2019 Dues for Part Time Skaters - $80.00

Full time skaters are those attending 2 practices per week and part time skaters are those attending 1 practice per week.  In the event a part time skater would like to attend an extra practice beyond the 1 per week, the drop in fee will be $10.00 for each additional practice.  A skater may change the number of days skating per week at any time by making arrangements with the Finance Director. 

All semester dues are due in full before the semester begins.  Skaters joining the league after the semester begins will receive an invoice for prorated dues.  Payment plans are available by contacting the Finance Director at finance@rollingrebellion.com.  Dues may be paid by cash or check at any practice or by bank draft or credit card online via the link included on your invoice.  Your child will NOT be allowed to skate until your semester dues are paid in full or a payment plan has been arranged.  

In addition, each skater will also be invoiced for a $60.00 annual registration fee due with the Fall Semester invoice or upon membership with the league if not a member when Fall Semerster is invoiced.  The annual registration fee covers insurance and JRDA dues for the league.

If you have any questions regarding dues please contact the Finance Director at finance@rollingrebellion.com.

AMENDMENTS AND REVISIONS

All amendments and/or revisions to the Rolling Rebellion's general policies or bylaws may be revisited and revised as deemed necessary by the league's Board of Directors.

Skater & Parent Positive Code of Conduct

POSITIVE INVOLVEMENT

When kids are surveyed about the reasons why they play sports, the #1 response kids consistently report is to have fun.  In addition to the fun kids experience while playing sports, additional benefits from sport participation include physical, cognitive, and emotional growth and development.  Unfortunately all of these things do not happen automatically, but instead occur as a direct result of our positive efforts as a team.  It is in this spirit that the following Positive Involvement Code of Conduct Contract has been written to remind skaters, parents, volunteers, and coaches of a few important guidelines designed to help the team maximize its experience.

Respect the game, including your child, his or her teammates, and opponents.  This means ensuring your child attends and comes prepared for all practices and games, and treats both teammates and opponents with dignity and respect.  Good Sportsmanship means playing fair and safe, controlling negative emotions, and keeping the spirit of competition a healthy endeavor.

Respect the officials.  Remember, roller derby officials (referees, non-skating officials) are an important part of the sport and add to the overall skater experience.  It is important that you distinguish between bad calls as human error and wrong calls as when an official doesn't know the rule.  In either case, it is important that you respect all officials and develop tolerance skills for when bad calls are made.

Refrain from coarse and threatening language, as well as all forms of physical aggression.  There is never a place in youth sports to use vulgarities, threaten, intimidate, or use physical aggression.

Watch for the safety of all players at all times, including physical and emotional dangers.  Be sure to pay attention to injuries, including concussions, and report and respond to them in a timely manner.  Additionally, pay attention to signs of youth sport burnout and be sure to respond to your child if he or she needs help.

Cheer whenever possible, and stay away from booing and other negative fan behavior.  Youth sports provide a great opportunity for positive fan support, including cheering.  Booing and other negative gestures and language from the sidelines are never appropriate, so be sure to stay focused on positively supporting your skater's team at all times.  

When attending Rolling Rebellion events, I/we therefore agree:

I/We will be a positive role model for my child/teammates and encourage sportsmanship by showing respect and courtesy, and by demonstrating positive support for all players, coaches, officials, volunteers, parents, and spectators at every game, practice, or team-related event.  

I/We will not engage in any kind of unsportsmanlike conduct with any player, coach, official, volunteer, parent, or spectator such as booing, taunting, or using profane language or gestures, etc.

I/We will not encourage any behaviors or practices that would endanger the health and wellbeing of the athletes.  

I/We will demand that all participants treat other players, coaches, officials, volunteers, parents, or spectators with respect regardless of race, sex, or ability.

I/We will never ridicule or yell at any participant for making a mistake or losing a competition.

I/We will respect the officials and their authority during games; will never question, discuss, or confront coaches or referees at the sporting event; and will take time to speak with coaches to air grievances at an agreed upon time and place.  

I/We will refrain from coaching my child or other participants during games and practices, unless I am one of the official coaches of the team.

I/We will inform the coach of any physical disability or ailment that may affect the safety of my child or the safety of others.

I/We agree that if I fail to abide by the aforementioned rules and guidelines, I/we will be subject to disciplinary action that could include, but is not limited to the following:

Verbal warning by official, head coach, and/or member of the League Organization

Written Warning

Game suspension with written documentation of the incident

Season suspension

I (the undersigned), DO HEREBY AFFIRM THAT I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THE SKATER AND PARENT POSITIVE CODE OF CONDUCT.

If the law in any controlling jurisdiction renders any part of this agreement unenforceable, the remainder of this agreement shall nevertheless remain enforceable to the full extent, if any, allowed by controlling law.
