Speaking of multiple rule sets... if you're looking at the spectrum of rules and spectrum of league types you'd do well to look at them all.

For "regular" play there are:

JRDA
http://www.juniorrollerderby.org/

MADE
http://www.skatemade.org/rollerderbyrules

USARS
http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Roller-Sp...ler-Derby.aspx

WFTDA
https://wftda.org/rules

And there are even "fitness" groups:

Derby Lite
http://www.derbylite.net/home.asp





Despite the humbug of some rink owners about insurance, the fact is that roller rink insurance is a competitive marketplace with plenty of underwriters that want the business. While not all policies include roller sports, many do and riders are almost always available for those that don't.

A brief sampling:

http://www.skatinginsurance.com/

http://www.sadlersports.com/roller-s...rance-program/

http://www.alliedinsmgr.com/ice-roll...ing-insurance/

https://www.kandkinsurance.com/Recre...acilities.aspx

Also, sometimes there are overlapping layers of insurance covering roller sports leagues, with the rink's policy and/or the league's policy (http://www.teamusa.org/USA-Roller-Sp...ce-Reciprocity)

More anecdotally, the local rinks here obviously have it figured out - very few are not hosting at least one club/league for hockey/dance/derby/slalom/speed/etc. Moreover, several owners of one of the local leagues here are attorneys, so I'm guessing they've looked into it and decided it was a manageable liability.
Insurance rates are state dependant since some states like IL specifically protect rink owners as skate at your own risk and limitations on liability, sorta like dram shop for bars where liability is limited. There's a lot of outlets for rink liability.

Don't forget too, in FL, you're going to have heat/ humidity issues which can affect the floor and comfort of patrons. That cooling bill with thousands of square feet Can be brutal.

Extreme north Florida, central panhandle, not as bad as South Florida, although summer can be brutal anywhere in the SE, I know.

I emailed the contact no less than 3 times in the past 30 days, not even as much as a 'thanks, but no thanks we are set at this time' and not even a 'please don't email us again'. LOL, they don't care, it's all good.

The email starts off with 'BOD' is I am not mistaking? I would have to look, but I copied and pasted it off their website and it was the only contact and no phone numbers at all. All three emails never came back.
