LOA requests are valid for up to 1 month; if your leave will be longer, you must notify membership and turn in an LOA form for every month, up to 90 days. If your leave is longer than 3 consecutive months, your membership may be revoked or it may change to non-competing membership status, depending upon the circumstances.
If your leave is longer than 90 days, you must notify Membership to discuss your circumstances. To maintain active member status on an LOA, you must make arrangements to get your dues paid on time and notify your committee of your plans. If you are a committee head, it is your responsibility to be sure you have appropriate coverage and that you communicate with the league who the temporary contact is and for how long.
Upon return to Hellgate Rollergirls’ (HGRG) from your LOA and if you continued to be an active member during your leave, the bouting eligibility guidelines are as follows:
If your LOA was 1 month or shorter, your eligibility to bout is up to your captains and coaches.
If your LOA is longer than 60 days, your eligibility to come back and participate in a bout will be evaluated by Training, Coaches, and Captains. They will take HGRG good standing rules and team drafting situation into consideration.
If your LOA is longer than 90 days, your membership may be revoked or it may change to non-competing membership status. Returning skaters under these circumstances will be placed in the new recruit process.
You can apply for exceptions through Training or Finance committees.
