If you want to see roller derby up close but aren’t ready for a big hit, join the Ref Riders, our officiating crew! TCDG needs officials to staff our games, which are governed by WFTDA’s standard practices and rules. For interested officials, WFTDA offers annual training clinics and certification.
Referees, our skating officials, are volunteers who facilitate safety and fairness in gameplay. They gear up and attend conditioning practices with the league and officiate during scrimmages and games. This group also answers questions about rules during games and scrimmages and helps the farm team prep for testing by presenting Rule of the Week.
Non-skating officials, or NSOs, wear pink shirts and are integral to every game. These volunteers track statistics, record scores, and keep the game clock. Most positions are easy to learn, and once you start you will want to learn them all.
