Want to help out?
LRD is run solely by volunteers and it takes a lot of work to run the league, so we ask everyone to contribute in ways such as leading a warm up/cool down, coaching (when you’re ready), web design, setting up the track, organizing outdoor skates or (especially athletic) social outings, looking for new venues etc. Let us know if you have any special skills (graphic or web design, contacts with media or venues, a fondness for yoga and ability to lead a cool down stretch etc.)!
ready to buy your own skates and gear?
Finally, take your time and don’t panic! Many of our skaters started out all wobbly but look at them now! We all love to help out newbies, so don’t be afraid to grab a hold of one of us and ask for some tips.
Skaters ♀ and referees ♀♂
Even if you don’t want to skate – we still need you! Every bout and every single event is organized by LRD itself – and that’s plenty of work besides skating. So go and become a non-skating-official (NSO) and support the league! When it comes to bouts, you’re the ref’s right hand and keep track of scores, penalties and game/jam/penalty times.
Referees only ♀♂
