Our league requires that any skaters who try out for and make a team are a member of a committee and do work that benefits that committee each month. Non-teamed members are exempt from committee work. 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.

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.During the course of my participation as a member of the Ann Arbor Derby Dimes, I will not skate for another league as a member of any team during competitive play.

Without limiting the specific obligations above to honor A2D2's confidentially and trade secret information for so long as it remains protected, I specifically agree during my participation and one year thereafter, I will accept no participation where the performance of the duties and responsibilities of the new participation will call on me to use, to disclose or to base judgment on the confidential or trade secret Information of A2D2 or to utilize the goodwill of A2D2 in assisting any competitor 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.
