Dutch Ladies Competition 2003
- All Women are Invited -

Nike and Sophie
Copyright © Nike Diercx

For many years, races in Holland had no special ladies' category and women who wanted to race had to compete against men or go abroad to race. In 2002, there were a few races with special categories for women, and those events were attended by female skaters from around the world including some of the top world champion gold medal winners. Because those events were so successful, the Dutch Federation is organizing a special series for ladies in 2003, and women from all over the world are invited to participate in any or all of these events.

Who Can Participate?
Women from every country are invited to participate in this series, and they can skate in as many or as few events as they wish, because each race can be separately entered. All of the races except the World Inline Cup events require skaters to have a Dutch license, but any skater can purchase a license to participate in Dutch races.

Dutch Skating License (Required)
Any skater, from any country, can obtain a license to compete in the races organized by the Dutch Roller Sports Federation (SkateBond.nl). The license costs 42.50 Euros in 2003, and it entitles the bearer to FREE PARTICIPATION in all Skatebond Netherlands competitions - about 50 events per season. The license also includes accident insurance and legal assistance benefits. For more information about obtaining a Dutch license or racing in the Netherlands contact Skatebond Netherlands at info@skatebond.nl.

Registration Fees
For the criterium events, there is no extra registration fee for skaters with a Dutch license. The registration fee for the World Inline Cup events is 20 Euros for skaters who are not on an official World Inline Cup team.
