Roll Right Membership Procedure for Instructors

All skaters who participate in the Roll Right program with an instructor, whether for private lessons or group lessons, must register as a Roll Right member. Registration ensures consistent program delivery because:

  1. It prompts skaters to review the program policies before starting lessons, such as wearing protective gear, thus taking the onus from instructors of having to review program policies with all new skaters.

  2. It prompts skaters to complete a Par-Q quiz to ensure they are fit to participate in new physical activity, thereby limiting cases of injury and possible lawsuits against instructors.

  3. It prompts skaters to sign liability waivers, where they agree not to hold instructors accountable for injuries, again limiting cases of injury and possible lawsuits against instructors. A copy is given to the instructor.

  4. It prompts students to rate their skating ability, so instructors have an idea of the level of skater before their first class, so instructors can better prepare for the lesson.

  5. Skaters receive an automatic confirmation of their payment, as well as their registration responses. They also get another email once their file has been updated and their membership number assigned.

  6. It provides a membership number, which gives skaters exclusive access to resources as they become available, such as the skills videos.

  7. The membership number is also used to register their progress and, in the future, register for certification courses.

  8. If you are a Canadian instructor using the Roll Right Skating Academy insurance, the insurance only covers instruction of Roll Right members.

  9. Together, these factors enhance the skaters’ overall learning experience and experience with you as an instructor.

However, we recognize the challenge in checking that skaters are registered, so here are some tips to make registration easier.

1. Link the registration site directly to your payment portal and give clear instructions that new registrants must complete their Roll Right membership registration prior to attending their first class: https://www.rollright.org/learn/membership

2. Schedule time to complete the registration with the participant directly, as one would in a registration office.

3. The Roll Right office will send you a notification during our business hours when someone new registers, so you can keep track of it this way. However, if you need confirmation before that, you can ask skaters to show their response receipt from the registration form itself, which is emailed to them directly immediately upon submitting the registration form.

Exceptions:

  • The registration benefits are most enjoyed by participants who intend on attending multiple classes. So for the case of one-off lessons, seminars, workshops, sample lessons, etc. In the first lesson, you are not required to have the skater complete the registration payment; however, they must complete their skater registration and use the codes “TRIAL” or “WORKSHOP” for payment confirmation. These registrants will not receive a membership number until their payment is made, and the Roll Right office will follow up with the instructor to find out if the skater intends to continue with additional lessons.

  • If you are a Canadian instructor using the Roll Right Skating Academy insurance, it only covers skaters who pay their registration and complete their profile. So skaters will need to register for instructors to be insured to teach them.

Promoting your Program

Promoting your Program

  • Instructors are encouraged to invite skaters to view this website for program details or link our website to your class descriptions. This saves you time and improves clarity for prospective students.

  • The logo is available for you to use in the LTRR - Certified Instructor Files (Beginner Program) link below

Note Regarding Waivers

  • Skaters acknowledge a waiver when they complete their Roll Right membership registration. However, your insurance company may have different requirements. Please review your insurance requirements and follow those guidelines to ensure you are covered. Roll Right Skating Academy Ltd. is not responsible for adhering to other insurance requirements. If your insurance company requires a specific waiver, please contact us to add your waiver to the form.

  • The best way to prevent insurance and injury-related problems is to teach in a safe and controlled environment and require your skaters to wear protective gear.
