USA Roller Sports Announces Special Sanctioning for Beginner Type Events

March 21, 2014, 7:51 p.m. (ET)

USA Roller Sports is now offering sanctioning for meet hosts for "Class Skaters", "Beginner", "Tiny Tot" or "Basic Skills" types of events held in conjunction with a sanctioned competition.  Previously "Single Event" memberships were available for purchase by individuals wishing to participate in these events which have predominately been held at the regional championships.  These memberships included the secondary accident insurance like a regular membership as well as the liability for the host club.  This same coverage is now available with the contest host applying on the sanction request form for all participating contestants.  This additional provision to the sanction is $150 with unlimited participation.  USARS hopes this new procedure will eliminate the paperwork for both the contest host as well at the national office and ensure that all contestants are covered as well as offering a lower priced alternate to the "Single Event" memberships available in the past. 


If you have any questions feel free to contact AJ Epp (, Sanctioning Coordinator, or Richard Hawkins (, Executive Director.
