Wayne Burrett’s retirement from RSC was recently celebrated by Roller Sports Canada.
Wayne Burrett was involved with RSC during its beginnings in the early 1970s’s and continues to support the Federation even after his retirement!
At the time of its creation, Roller Sports Canada was called the ‘Canadian Federation of Amateur Roller Skaters’. Wayne served to support athletes, coaches, Clubs and a variety of international Teams in roller figure and roller speed skating.
Roller Sports Canada thanks Wayne Burrett for his years of devoted service. RSC wishes him all the best in the future!

2013 Rules for RSC Speed (Rulebook) Update
The RSC Speed Committee is working diligently at reviewing and updating the 2013 Rules for RSC Speed. Part of this process includes examining feedback from a survey that was recently sent to members. As well, the Speed Committee is looking at the feasibility of implementing recommendations made by the Toronto Inline Skating Club, host of last July’s 2013 Canadian Outdoor Championships. Additional communications will be sent over the next two months regarding this update to the 2013 Rules for RSC Speed.

On behalf of RSC’s Speed Committee, thank you for your participation at the 2013 Canadian Championships in Toronto. A strong and dedicated team of volunteers helped to plan, promote and deliver these Canadian Championships.
The 2013 edition was the first time the Canadian Championships were held under the 2013 Rules for RSC Speed. In order to plan for and offer the best possible competition using the fairest and clearest rules in the future, RSC’s Speed Committee is seeking your feedback and would like to hear about your experiences at the 2013 Canadian Championships.
Au nom du Comité Vitesse de RSC, merci pour votre participation aux Championnats Canadiens 2013 à Toronto. Une bonne équipe dévouée de bénévoles a aidé à planifier, faire la promotion et offrir ces Championnats Canadiens.
L’édition 2013 était la première fois que les Championnats Canadiens ont eu lieu sous les Règles de Vitesse Pour RSC 2013. Afin de planifier et d’offrir la meilleure compétition possible à l’avenir, le Comité Vitesse de RSC est à la recherche de vos commentaires et aimerait entendre parler de vos expériences aux Championnats Canadiens 2013.
When Natasha Bogucki rolled out onto the smooth wooden floor November 4th for the 2013 World Roller Figure Skating Championships, she was thrilled to share the rink with over 600 competitors from 23 different countries.
As the 2013 Canadian National Artistic Roller Sports Champion, she and her coach, Lloyd Williams, traveled to Taipai, Taiwan to participate in this important event. To prepare, Natasha practiced up to 12 hours per week this past year with Lloyd and her other coach Kim Argento. She skates as a member of the Calgary Artistic Roller Sports Club in Calgary, while working at Lloyds Recreation (no relation to coach Williams) and studies fulltime at university.
Natasha’s specific event is Junior World Class Women’s Figures. In Taipei, she skated four different figure components and placed 15th out of 24 competitors. The young women she skated against hailed from such countries as Italy, Argentina, Brazil, USA, Australia and others.
This was Natasha’s first time competing at Worlds and I wondered how she felt to have achieved her goal of participating at this major event. Natasha says she was proud to represent Canada, but was very nervous. “I did not want to let down my coaches or my family who have worked so hard with me. Truthfully, I am a bit disappointed in my performance because I made a few mistakes that cost me a higher placement, but I am hopeful that I learned from the experience and will be able to do better next time. I appreciate the support that Roller Sports Canada and Lloyds Recreation provided to me. It was an experience that I will never forget.”
After taking a well-deserved break, Natasha plans to strap on her skates again and prepare for Worlds next year to be held in Reus, Spain.
