Referees and Non-Skating Officials

We couldn’t play roller derby without them!

There are two types of roller derby officials: on-skates Referees and Non-

Skating Officials (NSOs). Referees don skates and protective gear and ensure skaters play a safe and fair game. NSOs perform several crucial jobs during a game including score keeping, game timing, penalty tracking.

All interested skaters and non-skaters are welcome to join our officials crew. No experience necessary. You must be 18 years of age or older. For more information contact us at LADDOFFICIALS@GMAIL.COM

Be a Volunteer!

Hosting a roller derby bout is a true labor of love requiring extensive planning and hard work on game day. Every game is completely homemade by skaters, officials and our wonderful friends and family.

  • EMTs (2/game)
  • Merchandise Table Staff
  • Skater Check-in Staff
  • Ticket Takers
  • Announcers
  • Security
  • Set up and Tear Down Staff
