On the RPS site under “rules” it says:
“Regardless of conviction and/or date of occurrence, ANY ACT OF VIOLENCE OR ABUSE AGAINST HUMAN OR ANIMAL, will result in 1) recorded lifts removed from the RPS results and records, 2) barred from competing in an RPS competition forthwith, and/or 3) removal from any officiation or representation of the organization. If you have a history of violence but are now rehabilitated, proof of accepting responsibility for your actions (i.e. guilty plea, public acknowledgment and apology) and documentation of successful release from rehabilitation method (i.e. counseling, classes, therapy) will be considered to allow inclusion in competition. RPS meet directors reserve the right to decline entry to an event to anyone, participant, coach or spectator, for any reason.”
So what does this really mean, you can’t compete if you have been convicted of violent crimes?
