Referee with NSR
Referees make sure that every derby game or scrimmage is played safely and fairly. Refereeing is a great way to get involved in Roller Derby! Everyone is invited to participate – you don’t have to know the rules (when you start out), and hey, you don’t even need to know how to skate (yet)! Northside Rollers will teach you both of those things as part of our Referee Training Program.
Trainee referees will need to start out by joining our Fresh Meat Skills program (see above) in order to learn safe skating skills. After passing Fresh Meat, we’ll start showing you the ropes of becoming a referee in the awesome sport of Roller Derby! Experienced referees who’d like to transfer from other leagues are very welcome to join us as transfers!
All referees (trainee and transfers) will need to be available on Sunday evenings to train at our league scrimmages.
