ECRG VOLUNTEERS ROCK OUR WORLD!!

BECOME AN OFFICIAL

The Emerald City Roller Girls rely on our dedicated officiating crew to ensure that our events are run safely, efficiently, and in accordance with WFTDA rules. It takes (HOW MANY?) officials to run a roller derby bout, and we are always in search of interested volunteers to become part of the Emerald City Roller Girls Officials (ECRGO)

Non-Skating Officials

If you love roller derby and would like to be involved in a position that doesn’t require roller skating, becoming an NSO might be for you. The Emerald City Roller Girls NSOs are a dedicated group of women and men who are responsible a variety of jobs during scrimmages and bouts including: scorekeeping , penalty box timing, operating the scoreboard, and tracking lineups.

Referees

If you have skating skills and are interested in the particulars of rules (or you just look amazing in stripes), a skating referee position is for you! Our skating referees help keep the skaters safe and the game fair. Referees will be trained in the necessary skating skills, the rules of the game, and how to work with the other referees and NSOs.

No previous experience in sports officiating is necessary!  Our zebra crew will teach you all that you need to know for either position, but a passion for roller derby is encouraged.
