This is posted in the public section as it's open to all BRD members and Drop In Derby skaters, and I don't want to confuse things by having two threads about the same thing going on unless completely necessary!
1: Main changes in 2014 ruleset
2: The game and skaters, penalty enforcement
3: The pack and contact penalties
4: Non contact penalties and Scoring
Session 1 is geared towards any skater who has skated / learnt the 2013 ruleset and feels they would benefit from a session dedicated to the main impact of changes that came in with the 2014 ruleset.
Sessions 2-4 are geared more towards skaters who are pre/newly passed min skills OR feel that they would benefit from a refresher course about the 2014 ruleset. Sessions will cover rules and explanations, along with using tactic/strategy explanations in order to put the rules into the context of gameplay.
IN ALL CASES:
Make sure you read the section of the rules that applies to that session *before* the start of the session. Do come prepared with questions if you have any. Sessions will be kept to an hour (to avoid Rule Fatigue
) but there will be time for questions and discussion afterwards if people choose to stick around after 8:30pm.

(The links won't work for people not currently BRD members, as they go to a calendar only viewable by current members. However, there's no additional information there other than attendance tracking. If you are a Drop In skater rather than a full BRD member, just register your interest on this thread so that we have an idea of how many people to expect)
I fully expect coaches to be less inclined to answer basic rules questions if there has been a chance to attend sessions such as these, so if you are hazy on rules, attend these sessions or start doing some serious homework!
Any questions - ask away!
