Leagues that choose to have their membership through RDC, must then have all skaters with that league also purchase membership with RDC. This helps ensure the league is covered, from a liability standpoint, and that skaters are also covered by the secondary insurance program.
Apprentice membership covers skaters for 120 days (4 months) and is $30. This option is available for new skaters who are trying out the sport or taking a new skater program. After 120 days skaters that continue to skate need to purchase a regular yearly membership for $55.00
Dedicated skating officials have a special membership cost of $30 per year. This option is not for officials who also play roller derby.
The RDC accident coverage will cover you in Canada as long as you have Canadian healthcare. It also includes worldwide coverage If your league is playing in a game, attending a bootcamp, or attending Rollercon.

RDC provides Director and Officer Insurance for each league independently at a cost of $125 for the 2023 calendar year from January to December.
RDC has accident insurance that covers skaters for accidents while skating at league practices and during games. This insurance is a secondary insurance that pays for injuries over and above your provincial health care.
Our plan does not cover loss of wages. There are other options and plans that can meet your budget and protect you.

This is for RDC league play only, RDC does not cover skaters to play in the USA on USA teams or in USA leagues.
RDC cannot stress enough that ALL skaters that do not have additional insurance above their provincial health care, especially skaters that travel to the USA or extensively through Canada, protect themselves by purchasing a plan that will cover all expenses in the event they are ever hurt. Our accident insurance is a very limited plan that meets the requirements of WFTDA and USARS.
Dehoney Financial Group have options available to you that can provide travel coverage and make sure the coverage you currently have includes roller derby. Please visit thier website for more information.
Volunteers, Coaches, assistant coaches, NSO (non skating officials) do not need RDC membership. They do have the option if they wish to be members and be covered under our plan but it is not necessary if they are not on skates. Volunteers are people that volunteer to help at games but do not skate, do not pay dues, have no vote in your league and generally show up to help at your events.
Independent skaters who are not affiliated with a league must be over the age of 18 and have 3 years experience playing roller derby or be a skating official. Any independent skater that is picked up to play by a league to play in a game must adhere to the leagues safety guidelines and policies as well as their benchmarking process.
RDC has no restrictions on junior and senior skaters. It is each leagues decision how they choose to regulate such practices and games. It is also each leagues choice to have junior and senior skaters on the track together. If you choose to have mixed games and practices that involve junior and senior skaters it is highly recommended that each league has a safety plan in place.
