January 1 – JRDA Championship Tournament.
The league you practice with, are insured under, and participate in bouts with during the JRDA season of January 1 – JRDA Championship Tournament.
The team during the JRDA season of January – JRDA Champs that you play all of your Level 3 sanctioned bouts with. Junior Skaters are only allowed to be on ONE "Charter Team" throughout the JRDA Season. If they are to transfer Leagues mid-season, the JRDA Regional Coordinator and committee members will review the transfer on a case-by-case basis to determine if the skater(s) can participate in the remainder of the JRDA Season or wait until the next JRDA Season on the new "Charter Team." Once the Skater Transfer paperwork is submitted to the Regional Coordinator, the transferring skater may no longer skate with the "Charter Team" they are transferring from.
A "Select Team" consists of players from different individual teams specifically chosen for a bout/tournament either by skill or by ability to travel due to logistics, costs, etc. as this would make the bouts they would play "Friendship Bouts."
A junior skater who practices with an adult team or in a small junior roller derby group not designated as its own League who rosters with a "Charter Team" close enough to be a regular attendee at "Charter Team’s" designated practices and only competes with that "Charter Team."
JRDA Regional Tournaments
As the regions and tournaments are still developing, it will be up to each Region to determine if they will allow only Charter Teams or both "Charter" and "Select Teams" to participate as JRDA Members, as these are round-robin tournaments with no Championship round. The Regional Coordinator will poll the attending leagues in the tournament and be the ultimate decision maker if "Select Teams" are allowed in an effort to understand what will grow their perspective regions.
JRDA Championship Tournament
The JRDA Championship tournament will allow “Charter Teams” to participate for the ultimate title of JRDA Champion. Alternate tournament brackets can be created for "Select Team" participation if there is capacity to do so.
