Notice of Procedural Change – Insurance

Roller Sports Canada plans to continue its long-standing support of providing additional and supplementary insurance for its members. Having insurance in sports such as the ones we partake in is a necessity, and having a quick response when an injury occurs is paramount.

As you may be aware, the issue of insurance claims has become a serious one for all teams due to the growing number of injuries during practices and competitions. As our sports grow and gain popularity, these will continue to increase. In the past year alone, we have seen a 40% increase in claims across all disciplines.

To Any RSC Athlete Who May Become Selected for Out of Competition Selection

Roller speed skating’s governing body, FIRS, has released the following statement to all National Federations:

Unfortunately FIRS has noted that the antidoping tests scheduled for some athletes have been unsuccessful because of a wrong place of residence provided in the athletes’ whereabouts. This irregularity will result in a whereabouts failure being recorded against the athlete. Three whereabouts failures in an 18 month period will result in a disqualification of between 1 and 2 years for the athlete.


La Fédération Internationale de Roller Skating a envoyé la déclaration suivante à toutes les Fédérations Nationales:

Malheureusement, la FIRS a noté que les tests antidopage prévus pour certains athlètes ont échoué à cause l’endroit de résidence/ séjour prévu indiqué pour ces athlètes n’était pas précis ou correct. Cette irrégularité causera un échec contre l’athlète. Trois échecs de localisation dans une période de 18 mois se traduira par une disqualification entre 1 et 2 ans pour l’athlète.
