I-5 ROLLERGIRLS
JUNIOR ROLLER DERBY LEAGUE
2015 REGISTRATION INFORMATION
The I-5 Rollergirls is a Junior Flat Track derby program open to girls age 10-18. Our program is designed to
develop character, confidence leadership and positive social interaction through the sport of roller derby.
The I-5 Rollergirls intend to nurture and develop both the skilled athlete and those who have not yet realized
the champion inside them!
WE SUBSCRIBE TO THE FOLLOWING GOVERNING PRINCIPLES:
1. Safety
2. Sportswomanship
3. Full participation, at coaches discretion (everyone gets to play)
AGE REQUIREMENTS:
 Skaters shall be no younger than 10 years of age and no older than 18 years of age on or before
November 1st, 2014 to be eligible to skate with the I-5 Rollergirls.
 Participation on the travel team is kept to players aged 12-18.
 Due to special circumstances and depending on ability, the I-5 Rollergirls reserves the right to
make placement decisions.
SEASON AND PRACTICE INFORMATION:
 The regular season runs from November, 2014, until July, 2015. Post season play may run into
August. Information on post season play will be shared as soon as available.
 Practices are:
 Saturdays, 9:30-11:30am, Southgate Roller Rink
 Sundays, 8-10am, Shoreline Derby Center (time will move to 9:30-11am in January)
 Scrimmages and bouts will be scheduled throughout the season. That schedule will be available
on the I-5 website.
 Practice times are still in flux and may change.
 Due to circumstances beyond our control, practice times and locations may change or be cancelled. I-5 strives to give as much notice as possible if there are changes.
TRYOUTS - PRESEASON PRACTICE SQUAD - DETERMINATION OF CHARTER
 I-5 Rollergirls has open tryouts at the beginning of every season. Any skater who meets the minimum
requirements and wishes to join the team may register and attend the tryouts on October 5th, 2014.
Successful skaters will be notified within one week of tryouts of their inclusion in the Preseason Practice Squad.
 Skaters intending to accept the invitation to join the Preseason Practice Squad must formally do so by
paying a non-refundable deposit of $50. (If the skater continues on as a full member of the I-5 Rollergirls, this deposit will be applied towards the season dues.) This deposit is due on or before the first
day of practice, October 11th, 2014.
 The first four (4) practices will allow both the skaters of the Preseason Squad and the coaches to
evaluate more fully if I-5 Rollergirls is the best fit for each other. All skaters, regardless of their previous standing with the team are subject to this evaluation.
 Upon the conclusion of the fourth (4th) practice on November 1st, 2014, skaters will be informed of
their status on the Charter. I-5 Rollergirls has determined that a Charter of forty (40) players is best
suited to the teams overall operations and the success of each skater’s development. The Board of
Directors of the I-5 Rollergirls reserves the right to change the number of players on the Charter at
any time during the season.

forms and submit their first payment of dues, no later than the first practice following the Charter creation
(November 8th, 2014). No skater will be allowed to practice until they have completed this step.

FUNDRAISING AND VOLUNTEERING
 I-5 Rollergirls is a non-profit entity. All fees and funds raised go directly to support the operations of the
team. It is through the efforts of all of us that we are able to present these opportunities to our children!
 As a major fundraiser, I-5 holds an annual Skate-a-thon. Every skater is required to participate in this
event, with a baseline amount raised of $250/skater. The funds from this event are used to support
overall team operations and travel opportunities.
 Other fundraising opportunities will be available and all parents and skaters are strongly encouraged to
participate.
 The Board of Directors solicits volunteers from the parent and skater base to help fulfill support activities throughout the season. I-5 Rollergirls relies on all the parents and skaters participating as volunteers. Without your help, our team will not succeed!

2015 EQUIPMENT CHECKLIST
QUAD SKATES (4 wheels—no inlines)
If you are purchasing your first pair of quads, be sure to visit a store that specializes in skate gear. Your skates are an investment in your success and getting the best pair that fits your budget and your feet is tremendously important. I-5 Rollergirls
strongly recommends you consider visiting a skate shop for advise on skates, plates, wheels, bearings and toe stops.
HELMET
A proper fitting helmet is absolutely the most important piece of safety equipment you will purchase. There are many styles
and brands on the market, but the most important detail is a helmet with an ABS shell and EPS hard foam liner. EPS hard
foam meets ASTM F 2040 and EN 1077B standard for snow and ski, CPSC and EN 1078 standard for bike and skate. If the
helmet you purchase meets these standards you will have the most protection. Again, I-5 Rollergirls strongly recommends
you have an expert help you select and fit your helmet. You will probably feel the helmet is too tight—that is common but
correct. Do not hesitate to spend more money on your helmet, if it affords better protection.
KNEE PADS
Knee protection is important not only for comfort but for longevity in the sport. Purchase pads that fit snugly and don’t slide
down. Always check you knee pads for wear, tears and exposed rivets, etc. Expect to replace your knee pads every season
or two.
ELBOW PADS
Purchase pads that fit snugly and don’t slide down. Your elbow pads will most likely last longer than your knee pads, but
proper care and inspection is required.
WRIST GUARDS
Wrist guards protect your wrist and hands from damage. There are a few different styles and features. Some pull on like a
glove, others wrap around your hand like a splint. While it ultimately is a matter of personal preference, the glove style
guards seems to have fewer issues with maintaining fit over time. Like other gear, they will require replacement every now
and then.
MOUTHGUARDS
Mouth guards are actually mostly protection against concussion although they also protect your teeth and mouth. There are
many styles to choose from and the technology is ever evolving. As with helmets, do not go the least expensive route on
mouth guards. You can get your dentist to make a custom guard but be aware that with the ever changing structure of teeth
in the adolescent this may not even last a season. There are other options that have almost equal protection. Buy two and
keep both in your bag.
HIP PADS (Optional, recommended for new skaters)
Hip pads protect your hip bones tailbone, and keep large hematomas minimized, Also called compression shorts, hip pads
are a spandex type short with padded lining. McDavid hip pads are recommended as they have the best protection for the
tailbone. Hard shelled hip pads are not allowed as they pose a hazard to other skaters.
GLADIATORS
Gladiators or knee gaskets are extra padding that help protect the ligaments, cartilage and patella. These are not required.
Many new generation knee pads have the added support built in to them. Ask your expert whether you need them.
REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE(S)
OUTDOOR WHEELS (Optional, Recommended)
SKATE BAG
You don’t need to buy a custom bag to store all your gear, but you must have a bag dedicated to holding all your gear. It is
best to have one that can be left wide open (similar to rollaways, not duffels). Make sure it is large enough to hold your
skates and helmet along with all your other gear.
TOOLS AND SUCH
Duct tape - Dry Rag — Multitool by Powerdyne (has tools for toe stops, axle nuts and trucks) - Bearing cleaner, lubricant and
tool - Spare laces ( at least two sets) - Spare axle nuts - spare bearings….
MAINTAINANCE
It is important to keep your gear in good working condition. Bearings and wheels need cleaning and lubrication. Pads should
be washed often to help prevent bacteria. All gear should be thoroughly aired and dried after each use. Toe stop nuts, truck
nuts and axle nuts should be inspected for appropriate tightness before every use.

A Fact Sheet for PARENTS
WHAT IS A CONCUSSION?
A concussion is a brain injury. Concussions are caused
by a bump or blow to the head. Even a “ding,” “getting
your bell rung,” or what seems to be a mild bump or
blow to the head can be serious.
You can’t see a concussion. Signs and symptoms of
concussion can show up right after the injury or may
not appear or be noticed until days or weeks after the
injury. If your child reports any symptoms of concussion,
or if you notice the symptoms yourself, seek medical
attention right away.
WHAT ARE THE SIGNS AND
SYMPTOMS OF A CONCUSSION?
July 2007
Signs Observed by Parents or Guardians
If your child has experienced a bump or blow to the
head during a game or practice, look for any of the
following signs and symptoms of a concussion:
• Appears dazed or stunned
• Is confused about assignment or position
• Forgets an instruction
• Is unsure of game, score, or opponent
• Moves clumsily
• Answers questions slowly
• Loses consciousness (even briefly)
• Shows behavior or personality changes
• Can’t recall events prior to hit or fall
• Can’t recall events after hit or fall
Symptoms Reported by Athlete
• Headache or “pressure” in head
• Nausea or vomiting
• Balance problems or dizziness
• Double or blurry vision
• Sensitivity to light
• Sensitivity to noise
• Feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy
• Concentration or memory problems
• Confusion
• Does not “feel right”
HOW CAN YOU HELP YOUR CHILD
PREVENT A CONCUSSION?
Every sport is different, but there are steps your children
can take to protect themselves from concussion.
• Ensure that they follow their coach’s rules for
safety and the rules of the sport.
• Encourage them to practice good sportsmanship
at all times.
• Make sure they wear the right protective equipment
for their activity (such as helmets, padding, shin
guards, and eye and mouth guards). Protective
equipment should fit properly, be well maintained,
and be worn consistently and correctly.
• Learn the signs and symptoms of a concussion.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU THINK
YOUR CHILD HAS A CONCUSSION?
1. Seek medical attention right away. A health
care professional will be able to decide how serious
the concussion is and when it is safe for your child
to return to sports.
2. Keep your child out of play. Concussions take
time to heal. Don’t let your child return to play
until a health care professional says it’s OK.
Children who return to play too soon—while the
brain is still healing—risk a greater chance of
having a second concussion. Second or later
concussions can be very serious. They can cause
permanent brain damage, affecting your child for
a lifetime.
3. Tell your child’s coach about any recent
concussion. Coaches should know if your child
had a recent concussion in ANY sport. Your
child’s coach may not know about a concussion
your child received in another sport or activity
unless you tell the coach.
It’s better to miss one game than the whole season.

¿QUÉ ES LA CONMOCIÓN CEREBRAL?
Una conmoción cerebral es una lesión en el cerebro, causada
por un golpe en la cabeza o una sacudida. Incluso una pequeña
conmoción o lo que parece ser un golpe o sacudida leve puede
ser serio.
La conmoción cerebral no puede verse. Los signos y síntomas de
una conmoción pueden aparecer inmediatamente después de la
lesión o puede que no aparezcan, o se hagan visibles algunos días
o meses después de haber sufrido la lesión. Si su hijo tiene los
signos de una conmoción cerebral o si usted nota algún síntoma,
busque atención médica de inmediato.

¿CÓMO AYUDAR A SU HIJO A PREVENIR UNA
CONMOCIÓN CEREBRAL?
Aunque todo deporte es diferente, hay medidas que puede tomar
para protegerse.
• Haga que siga las reglas impartidas por el entrenador y las
reglas del deporte que practica.
• Invítelo a mantener el espíritu deportivo en todo momento.
• Haga que su hijo use el equipo protector adecuado según la
actividad que realiza (como casco, almohadillas protectoras,
canilleras o protector dental). El equipo de protección debe
ajustarse bien, debe hacérsele el mantenimiento adecuado, y
el jugador debe usarlo correctamente y en todo momento.
• Aprenda a identificar los signos y síntomas de la conmoción.
¿QUÉ DEBE HACER SI CREE QUE SU HIJO HA SUFRIDO
UNA CONMOCIÓN CEREBRAL?
1. Busque atención médica de inmediato. Un profesional
de la salud podrá determinar la seriedad de la conmoción
cerebral que ha sufrido el niño y cuándo podrá regresar al
juego sin riesgo alguno.
2. No permita que su hijo siga jugando. Las conmociones
cerebrales necesitan de un cierto tiempo para curarse. No
permita que su hijo regrese al juego hasta que un profesional
de la salud le haya dicho que puede hacerlo. Los niños que
regresan al juego antes de lo debido - mientras el cerebro
está en proceso de curación - corren un mayor riesgo de
sufrir otra conmoción. Las conmociones cerebrales siguientes
pueden ser muy serias. Pueden causar daño cerebral
permanente que afectarán al niño de por vida.
3. Informe al entrenador del niño sobre cualquier
conmoción cerebral que el niño haya sufrido
recientemente. Los entrenadores deben saber si el niño
ha sufrido una conmoción recientemente en CUALQUIER
deporte. El entrenador no necesariamente sabrá si el niño
ha tenido una conmoción en otro deporte o actividad a
menos que usted se lo diga.
Es preferible perderse un juego que toda la temporada.

A Fact Sheet for ATHLETES
WHAT IS A CONCUSSION?
A concussion is a brain injury that:
• Is caused by a bump or blow to the head
• Can change the way your brain normally works
• Can occur during practices or games in
any sport
• Can happen even if you haven’t been
knocked out
• Can be serious even if you’ve just been “dinged”
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF
A CONCUSSION?
• Headache or “pressure” in head
• Nausea or vomiting
• Balance problems or dizziness
• Double or blurry vision
• Bothered by light
• Bothered by noise
• Feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy
• Difficulty paying attention
• Memory problems
• Confusion
• Does not “feel right”
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I THINK
I HAVE A CONCUSSION?
July 2007
• Tell your coaches and your parents. Never
ignore a bump or blow to the head even if you
feel fine. Also, tell your coach if one of your
teammates might have a concussion.
• Get a medical check up. A doctor or health care
professional can tell you if you have a concussion
and when you are OK to return to play.
• Give yourself time to get better. If you have
had a concussion, your brain needs time to heal.
While your brain is still healing, you are much
more likely to have a second concussion. Second
or later concussions can cause damage to your
brain. It is important to rest until you get
approval from a doctor or health care
professional to return to play.
HOW CAN I PREVENT A CONCUSSION?
Every sport is different, but there are steps you
can take to protect yourself.
• Follow your coach’s rules for safety and the
rules of the sport.
• Practice good sportsmanship at all times.
• Use the proper sports equipment, including
personal protective equipment (such as helmets,
padding, shin guards, and eye and mouth
guards). In order for equipment to protect you,
it must be:
> The right equipment for the game, position,
or activity
> Worn correctly and fit well
> Used every time you play
It’s better to miss one game than the whole season.
