FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 13, 2013
USA Roller Sports is excited to announce the release of the applications for both junior and men’s teams for the 2013 Roller Derby National Championships that will take place at the Tulsa Convention Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma from October 25th-27th, 2013. After the success of the junior exhibition games at last year’s National Championship and the continued growth of men’s clubs, USARS is eager to include official competition for each of these divisions.
Teams that wish to participate must complete the appropriate application and submit it the USARS National Office by September 1st, 2013. At this time, qualifying at the Regional level is not required for these teams. Teams will be selected on a first come, first serve basis, until capacity is reached for each division. Based on expressed interest, we anticipate reaching capacity on both divisions prior to the deadline, so teams are encouraged to submit their application early.
All division games will be played under the parameters of the 2013 USA Roller Sports Roller Derby Rule Book. All participants (players and coaches) must be current USARS members. All rostered players must successfully obtain USARS membership with their club before September 1st, 2013. Club paperwork and individual membership registration forms are available at: http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Roller-Sports/Resources/Forms.aspx.
The applications are available at: Resources, Forms or at the link below.
For more information, please contact the USARS National Office at 402-483-7551.
