    Mission Statement

    Ann Arbor Derby Dimes (A2D2) is a skater-run non-profit roller derby league. We foster an environment of respect and camaraderie, while promoting athleticism and empowerment for ourselves and the community.

    Welcome

    Welcome to Ann Arbor Roller Derby! We are so excited to have you. Ann Arbor Derby Dimes (A2D2) are a flat track roller derby league representing the Ann Arbor, MI area in the exciting and fast growing sport of roller derby. No experience is necessary to become an amazing roller derby player. If you have the dedication, we will make sure you get the training. One of the great things about roller derby is that, regardless of your size, shape, or skill level, there is a position for you!

    Costs

    League Dues

    Monthly dues are $40 and are due on the 1st of every month. If dues are not paid by the 3rd of the month, you will incur a $2 late fee, and you will not be permitted to skate at practice, compete in bouts, or attend league functions until your balance is paid or arrangements are made with the Financial Director. If you are unable to pay on time, please contact the Financial Director (treasurer@a2derbydimes.org) or Assistant Financial Director (a2d2duescollector@gmail.com) prior to becoming delinquent to make arrangements. You may pay any dues collector directly by cash or online via Venmo (http://www.venmo.com/annarborrollerderby). Our league requires that you are a member of a committee and do work that benefits that committee each month. If you do not do any committee work during a certain month, you will have 5 practice credits deducted from your attendance totals on the 1st of the following month. This may affect your scrimmage and/or bout eligibility.

    WFTDA Insurance

    Skaters are required to purchase insurance from WFTDA at a cost of $70 per year. Coverage is from January 1st through December 31st. After July 1st, the cost is prorated for the year to $40. Skaters are STRONGLY encouraged to have primary care insurance. Get more inform about obtaining WFTDA insurance further down in this form.

    Time Commitment

    Roller derby requires a fairly big time commitment. Because our league is entirely volunteer-run, skaters are also required to attend quarterly league meetings, volunteer at bouts and fundraisers, and attend meetings within their committee. But don't be discouraged! We know everyone has a life outside of derby, and A2D2 is designed with varying commitment levels to suit everyone. There are many league members who balance work, family, school, and derby. It's possible and you'll see it's well worth the time commitment. You'll get out of the experience what you put into it. And remember, if you don't have the availability to be a skater - reffing and NSOing (non-skating official) are awesome jobs that are just as important to keep the league rolling! if you are unable to attend a bout, fundraiser, or league meeting, you must contact the secretary (secretary@a2derbydimes.org) one week prior to the bout, or you will garner a one week suspension from practices.

    SKILLS ASSESSMENT

    Skaters who have previously bouted with any league, or have been an active skater participant for more than 3 months with a league who are not yet bouting are eligible to transfer into A2D2. An eligible transfer skater may begin skating at A2D2 practices when she moves to town, but will be unable to skate in scrimmage at practices until she is evaluated by the training collective. Once transferred, all scrimmage and attendance eligibility apply. Transfers will need to skills test with A2D2 at the first available time. You will be notified of when the next skills test will occur. After A2D2 teams have been established, transfer skaters are eligible to try out for a league team whenever the next team assessment happens, after they have participated and made attendance for one month. In the case that there are no upcoming assessments, transfer skaters will be placed in The Bank (unteamed skaters).

    In consideration of my participation and continued participation by Ann Arbor Derby Dimes ("A2D2"), or any affiliate or subsidiary thereof, and in further consideration of the membership fees paid, I agree as follows: I have no contract, agreement, claim or obligation, which may be in conflict with any obligation I have taken under this Agreement. Except as my assigned participation may require or, as A2D2 may otherwise consent in writing, I will not disclose at any time either during or subsequent to my participation, any information, knowledge or data of A2D2 organization which I may develop or receive during the course of my participation relating to financial data, writings, policies, designs, video, team playbook, business process, training, team meetings, trade secrets, know-how, plans and programs, or any other knowledge of A2D2's which is of a proprietary or confidential nature (“the Information"), and upon release of my participation with A2D2 for any reason, I agree to immediately deliver to A2D2 all physical property, plans, designs, manuals, letters, videos, notes, reports and any other materials relating to A2D2 in my possession or under my control. In the course of my participation I will learn and hopefully will conceive A2D2 Information during A2D2 time and at A2D2 expense, which Information relates to A2D2's interests and is likely to be of benefit both to A2D2's competitors and to A2D2 even after release of my participation. I recognize a just purpose in A2D2 protecting its investment in the Information and related training and experience. I also recognize a just purpose in A2D2's affecting such protection through continued use of my knowledge and judgment and through avoiding, for limited times, competition by, through and from former teammates trained and/or given special knowledge, contracts and/or experience by A2D2 in A2D2’s line of business and with access to A2D2's Information, equipment and financial resources. Accordingly, and with full knowledge, A2D2 will rely on this Agreement in accepting me, continuing to consider me and giving me access to its Information, I agree that: During my participation and for one year after the release of my participation for any reason, I will not either directly or indirectly divert or aid others in diverting any trade or business which A2D2 was enjoying at the time of such release or which I have solicited on A2D2’s behalf during my participation with A2D2; without the written permission of the President A2D2. During my participation and for one year after the release of my participation I will not own, manage, control, or operate any business which is engaged in the same or similar line of business as that carried on by A2D2, including starting a new league, without the written permission of the President of A2D2. During my participation and for one year after the release of my participation I will not either directly or indirectly entice, aid, or cooperate with other in soliciting or enticing away any team member, customer, client or supplier of A2D2, without the written permission of the President of A2D2.

In the event that any word, phrase, clause, sentence or other provision of the Agreement shall be deemed to violate any applicable statute, ordinance or rule of law in any jurisdiction in which it is used, such provision shall be ineffective to the extent of such violation without invalidating any other provision of the Agreement. It is further agreed that if at any time it shall be determined that this Agreement is unreasonable as to time, scope or area by any court of competent jurisdiction, A2D2 shall be entitled to enforce this Agreement for such a period of time and within such area and scope as may be determined to be reasonable by such court.
