TEAMS AND CHARTERS

Skater Registration is Required before being placed on a charter

To be placed on a charter, ALL SKATERS must fill out the skater registration form.  Each skater/parent will now "own" their identity and personal information.   Coaches MAY NOT fill out this form for the skater unless they are the skater's parent/guardian.   

 

Name and Number changes

Skater name and jersey numbers go into effect immediately.  There is no waiting period to change your name or number.  

Please send an email to charters@juniorrollerderby.org to request a name or number change.  

 

Champs Transfer Skaters

A transfer skater must be added to a JRDA league's active charter by submitting the charter request on March 1 or before to be eligible for any JRDA Champs / Playoffs / Regional Tournament games, unless the skater has not appeared on any other league's charter during the current competitive season.
