USARS Extends Deadline for Regional Participation Requirements

Based on feedback from member clubs, USA Roller Sports has extended the deadline for one of the requirements for participating in the 2013 Roller Derby Regional Qualifiers. Players will now have until May 15, 2013 to obtain their USARS membership in order to be eligible to participate at their respective Regional Qualifier. The new deadline applies to all women’s clubs and players wishing to participate at the 2013 Regional Qualifier events. The Regional Qualifier team application will be available soon.
