We have our finished our testing and have been meticulously working many hours to put together our final rule set RDCL Rules V2.3. This rule set will be used for BOTB VI and for the rest of the season. If you have any previous versions of the RDCL banked track rules, they are not longer valid.
Thank you to all of you on your hard work and dedication to put together the rule set for RDCL.
Each league is responsible to administer the minimum skills assessment to each skater before they are allowed to play their first inter-league game. Each skater must pass the minimum skills in order to be eligible for play in any inter-league game. 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.
We are currently in the testing phase of our rules for 2013 season. As many of you have probably already heard, one of our main changes was the decision to eliminate minors and move to a majors only rule set. Another thing we wanted to do was to get the game moving again so, we decided to change our pack definition.
RDCL Rules V2.2 test rule set is the current rules that all RDCL leagues are playing by. Please remember that this rule set is a test rule set, it is not the final rule set for the 2013 season. Once we have finalized the rules, projected to be done by the end of March, we will post them here. We will then follow those rules for all RDCL banked track games, including the Battle on the Bank Tournament, for the rest of the season.
We have also put together standardized hand signals for our referees to use during an RDCL game. This is the first time there is an official referee hand signal standard for banked track. The 2013 RDCL Ref Hand Signal document is also available for you to download.
