The Short Track Experiment

  • Ramgarhia Sikh Sports Centre, Chapeltown Road Leeds, England, LS7 3 AP United Kingdom (map)

It’s time to play short track!

Join us for a day of figuring out what the heck this new rule set is all about! Each participant will have a minimum of two games. Each game is has two 15 minute halves. Teams will be assigned by the organisers in advance of the event.

We’ll test out the low contact rules (key differences are no chest blocking and jammers need to slow down before engaging the pack) and the full contact rules. We’ll also run both OTA and WFTDA gender policy -aligned games. Skaters who have not passed their WFTDA minimum skills but who have been scrimmaging with their leagues are welcome to join in the low contact games.

It’ll be a fun and low pressure day of giving stuff a go, so come along and take part in the Short Track Experiment -
