The UKRDA is now welcoming the first round of applications from independent officials and non-UKRDA league officials who want to apply to be individual members of the organisation. We are also allowing UKRDA member league officials to apply to become UKRDA registered officials.
We announced the completion of our officials membership policy and the appointment of the Officials Admin Panel, which will process and decide on applications from officials, at the tail-end of last year.
The panel is now ready to welcome the first round of applications.
Independent/non-UKRDA league officials can apply using the form here.
UKRDA league officials can apply using the form here.
All successful applicants will have to agree to follow the officials code of conduct, and sign confidentiality agreements and declarations, which can be viewed here.
The closing date for applications is Saturday, February 21. A full timeline for independent officials applications can be viewed here.
The UKRDA is happy to announce the appointment of the first ever Officials Admin Panel.
The panel will process applications from independent or non-UKRDA league officials who want to join the UKRDA, as part of a new membership policy voted in by the UKRDA membership at the tail end of 2014. As well as creating a network of independent officials, it will also increase the resources available to UKRDA league-affiliated officials.
The panel is made up of:
- Ma Might
- Rocky Horror Ho
- Cherry Fury
- Stat Damon
- Maw Deuce
The window for submitting applications will open soon, so keep an eye out!
After approximately 2 years as an informal committee, the UKRDA have recently held our first AGM in Leeds and are now in the final stages of formalising the Association. 30 Delegates from across the UK were present for this historic meeting, and it’s now full steam ahead with activities to promote and grow the sport of roller derby in the UK. To enable us to concentrate on getting our house in order, membership applications are temporarily suspended and will re-open once we complete this formalisation process.
