RDCL Minimum Skills Requirements

The following are the minimum skills that RDCL requires each skater to pass in order to be eligible for play in any inter-league game. Each league is responsible to administer the minimum skills assessment to each skater before they are allowed to play their first inter-league game. These skills must be passed completely during the minimum skills assessment to be able to qualify as passing. The RDCL minimum skills will be administered and assessed in it's entirety in one session. If a skater fails any portion of the minimum skills, then they would need to retake the entire minimum skills assessment and pass all portions in order to be eligible to pass. By allowing a skater to play an inter-league game, the league is assuring that the skater passed the minimum skills. Once the skater has passed the minimum skills, the assessment form must be signed and dated by a league official. The minimum skills assessment may be required to be turned into the RDCL before games and/or tournaments.

If skaters continue in inter-league play, they will need to be re-assesed on a yearly basis.
