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) is 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!
Derby Rules
The Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) is the international governing body of modern, flat track roller derby, setting the standards in area such as rules, rankings, and tournament play. Ann Arbor Derby Dimes are a proud WFTDA league. To get a better understanding of the game, check out the rules section on their website: http://wftda.com/rules. The earlier you gain a firm understanding of the rules of derby, the better.

It's difficult to explain a roller derby bout (game) if you've never witnessed it live. We highly encourage you to check out live bouts in the area or online via http://wftda.tv for some excellent footage of past tournament bouts. There's nothing like watching the best-of-the-best in action to get you excited about playing roller derby! You can always talk to a veteran skater or referee about any questions you may have regarding the rules of roller derby. Don't be shy!

Cost - League Dues
***Note: Boot camps will only be held once a year in September. Please contact recruitment@a2derbydimes.org for more information ***

Bootcamp: To begin bootcamp, you are required to pay $200 up front (or make two installment payments of $110). This covers your dues for 18 weeks worth of boot camp. This fee is NON-REFUNDABLE. We use this money to secure your training space for the four month duration of boot camp.

Once you have have completed boot camp:
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).

Cost - WFTDA Insurance
Skaters are required to purchase insurance from WFTDA at a cost of $75 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.
Equipment
All skaters are required to have quad skates (no inline skates), knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, a helmet and a mouth guard. Other handy items include an athletic/gear bag, a socket wrench/skate tool, duct tape, toe guards, extra laces, extra wheel nuts, and a durable water bottle.
Time Commitment
Roller derby requires a fairly big time commitment. Boot Camp skaters will practice for two hours, twice per week. 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! Fresh Meat skaters are not responsible for bout or event attendance for the first half of boot camp. You will be notified when this time arrives.
Practices
Practices are two hours long and we recommend you arrive at least 15 minutes early to allow time to gear up.

A typical practice begins with a warm-up: skating some laps at your own pace, a dynamic stretching routine; basic skills and agility. Each practice usually will have an endurance component, which could mean skating laps for five minutes straight, drills that switch from a two-minute sprint to a 30-second skill set and back for five to 10 minutes at a time, or any specific form of torture at the trainer's discretion. The rest of practice time consists of drills that focus on agility, basic skills (crossovers, stops, falls, form, hitting, etc.), or game-play. Time at the end of practice is generally dedicated to scrimmaging, with the last 10 minutes or so reserved for static stretching as a group.

Of course, this all depends on your skating level, and practices will change as your skills increase. New skaters are not allowed to be involved in any contact drills until they have satisfied a skills requirement. We will work with you regardless of your skill level, and offer drills focusing on what all skaters need to work on. A2D2 members are passionate about roller derby and want as many individuals as possible to learn and love the sport! This is not the roller derby of the past, which was much more like pro-wrestling on skates. Illegal moves such as elbowing, tripping, punching, and pushing are NOT ALLOWED. It is, however, a very aggressive, full-contact, competitive sport, and it is common (and often perfectly legal) to take a hit that knocks you off your skates.

There will be opportunity, during boot camp, to begin attending veteran and team practices. Your boot camp instructor will let you know when you may start attending. Veteran and team practice schedule is as follow:

Monday - Arbor Bruising Co. (B Team) - 7:30-9:30pm
Tuesday - Ypsilanti Vigilantes (C Team) - 7:30-9:30pm
Wednesday - All League Scrimmage - 8pm - 10:30pm*
Thursday - Brawlstars (A Team) - 7pm - 9pm with a Brawlstars only scrimmage from 9pm - 10pm. Non-Brawlstars are encouraged to stay and NSO or ref.

*In order to scrimmage on Wednesdays, skaters must be skills test passed and obtain scrimmage eligibility attendance.

Getting Your Gear
SKATES
Skates are the biggest expense when starting out. It is very important to size your skates correctly. They should be snug, but not painfully tight. Most skates are in men's sizes, so your skate size will be about two sizes less than your shoe size. It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED to physically try on skates first. For locations to try on skates, see the Where to Buy section. An important feature to look for is an adjustable/removable toe-stop.

SURE GRIP ROCK GT-50 $125.00
http://www.suregrip.com/products-page/skate-packages/rock-skate-packages/gt-50
For someone starting out, but on a tight budget, this is your best bet. The GT-50 will get you through boot camp, but you'll likely want to upgrade later in your derby career; this is not the most durable skate.

RIEDELL R3 $149.00
http://www.rollergirlskates.com/riedell-r3-derby.aspx
The R3 is the most popular starter skate. It's great to learn on and the most affordable in the Riedell line. Like the GT-50, you'll likely want to upgrade later as this vinyl boot is glued, not stitched, to the sole, and may separate over time. Another drawback of this model is the square shaped toe-stop. You may want to upgrade to a round toe-stop to prevent them from turning and becoming loose or unscrewed.

RIEDELL VIXEN $239.00
http://www.rollergirlskates.com/riedell-vixen.aspx
A step up in the Riedell line is the Vixen. The leather boot is stitched into the sole, making it more durable than the R3 or GT-50. The plate that comes with the Vixen is aluminum, and while it's more durable and responsive than the nylon plates on the GT-50 and R3 skates, it is also considerably heavier.

These are the least expensive, up-to-snuff beginner skates that we recommend. There are usually veteran skaters with old skates and equipment to sell and we have created a handy spreadsheet that you can look at to see if any A2D2 skater has gear to sell that you would be interested in. You can find that spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1U6vQSUzTYpoK47JrMirJjq__QKiuc8mif7dkCGK9giE/edit#gid=0

Wheels
Wheels are a very personal choice when it comes to skates. There is such a wide range of price, style, size, and hardness it can be terribly overwhelming. Some skaters will even mix and match hardness (ie. softer wheels on the left and harder on the right). Prices can range from $40 to $160+ for a set of 8. Ultimately, you'll have to determine the speed, stability, and stance you prefer. These preferences will change when you start skating on different surfaces or playing different positions. The wheels that come with our beginner skates will usually be good enough to get you through boot camp.

You'll hear a lot about the hardness or durometer of a wheel. The durometer rating can range from 75A to 105A. The higher the number, the harder the wheel, and a harder wheel is a faster, slicker wheel. Softer wheels provide more grip. For starters, a wheel in the middle of the spectrum is good - anything from 88A to 94A. Choosing a wheel in the middle will allow you to grip the surface of the rink a little better, offering you more stability while first learning techniques. The best bet is to talk to veteran skaters that are roughly your body size or have similar foot movement. Find out what they use and ask to borrow a set of wheels before buying.

Bearings
It's nice to have a set of bearings for each set of wheels you own. It makes it easier when switching between wheels, but it is not absolutely necessary. It's important to remember that trucks come in two sizes; 7mm and 8mm. Make sure you know your truck size before buying new bearings.
Knee Pads
You'll be landing on your knees a lot when you fall in derby. It'll pay off in the long run to protect them. If there's any item of protective equipment that you should invest a little extra in at the start of your derby experience, it's your knee pads.

Here are a couple of recommendations:
Triple 8 Knee Pads $30-$40
187 Pro Killer Knee Pads $60

Elbow Pads
187 Elbow Pads $27
Triple 8 Elbow Pads $26
Pro Tec Elbow Pads $30
Wrist Guards
Triple 8 Wrist Savers $18
Pro Tec Wrist Guards $22
Helmets
Most of the league uses Bauer 2100 hockey helmets, and some use S-1 helmets. Both styles are great because they designed for multi-impact support. S-1 helmets run around $55 for the basic style. The Bauer 2100 runs around $35-45. Helmet fit is very important. You want your helmet to be snug, but comfortable.
Mouth Guards
Mouth guards can be purchased at any sporting goods store for $10+, but you can also go to your dentist and ask for a custom fit mouth guard. Spend the extra money to get one that has a dental guarantee; if your teeth get knocked out, they pay for it! A favorite of ours is made by a local company, SISU. Their mouth guards are thin and perforated for easy breathing and talking, and you can drink water while wearing them. They come in a variety of colors and cost $25. Buy at http://www.sisuguard.com/
Where to Buy
We HIGHLY recommend that you buy your skates and gear in-person; it's much better to try on things before purchasing, especially skates. Anime to Skateboards (animetoskateboards.com) in Southgate carries everything a derby girl needs and has many brands of boots in stock for you to try on. Their staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They also play derby and have tested the majority of their stock. A2D2 members receive a discount at Play-It-Again Sports in Westgate Plaze (Stadium and Jackson) and at Red Belly Board Shop (Plymouth Rd in Ann Arbor), who carry protective equipment, mouth guards, and wheels. The pro shops at Riverside Arena and Skatin Station II also carry a limited variety of skates and wheels.

All of this equipment can also be found online at at multiple sites. Just Google what you are looking for!

Ann Arbor Derby Dimes Non-Compete/Non-Disclosure/Conflict of Interest Agreement - A2D2(USA) Addendum A
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, uniforms, equipment, 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 A2D2s 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 other in diverting any trade or business which A2D2 was enjoying at the time of such release or which I have solicited on A2D2s behalf during my participation with A2D2; without the written permission of the President of the Ann Arbor Derby Dimes;

During my participation and for one year after the release of my participation I will not own, manage, control or operate, or act as a team member, representative, consultant or independent contractor for any business which is engaged in the same or similar line of business as that carried on by A2D2, 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;

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 Preside 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.

I further agree that in the event of any breach of the Agreement by me that injuries to A2D2 are irreparable and that A2D2 shall be entitled to injunctive relief in addition to such other and further relief as may be proper. In the event of my breach of this Agreement or any part thereof, I agree to pay all cost of enforcement of such Agreement, including but not limited to, reasonable attorneys' fees.

I understand and agree that nothing contained in this Agreement, either expressly or implied, is intended to impose any obligation on A2D2 to employ me for any period of time and that my participation by A2D2 is terminable at any time with or without cause by me or by A2D2.

I understand that this Agreement supersedes any and all prior Non-Compete/Non-Disclosure/Conflict agreements and understandings between A2D2 and myself. No representations have been made by A2D2 concerning the terms and conditions of participation other than those representations contained in the Agreement. This Agreement may be modified only by a written document signed by both the President of A2D2 and me.

I agree that this Agreement shall be governed and interpreted under the laws of the State of Michigan.
