This document shows the JRDA changes for junior play to the WFTDA ruleset dated 1 January 2015. All rules not specifically modified here remain as in the original ruleset.
These rules are for regulation games; changes may and should be made to non-regulation games on an individual basis as required to allow for skater safety, ability, and endurance. For example, beginning skaters may play two 15-minute periods instead of the regulation 30-minute periods, allow extra players on a team roster, or allow 60 seconds between jams instead of 30. All changes must be discussed and agreed to by both team captains/coaches and the head referee before the game starts.
JRDA Addenda for other Rule Sets
After polling our membership, the JRDA has determined that other rule sets - specifically USARS, MADE, and RDCL bank-track rules - do not require modification for use with players under the age of 18 at this time.
