Safety Concerns: In order to be roster-eligible for a USARS sanctioned event, players must have passed the established USA Roller Sports minimum skills requirements. Each organization (club) is responsible for tracking this and a designated official (to be decided by club) must sign off on skill mastery for each player. The organization must maintain signed records of all successful assessments and if requested, should be able to provide these to USA Roller Sports. Players must be assessed on an annual basis. This is for the safety of your players and we strongly encourage you to only allow players who have passed assessment to participate in full contact in practices and scrimmages.
