Referees & Officials

TCDG 2015 Ref Riders & NSOs

Our games are governed by WFTDA’s standard practices and rules, which our officials oversee. It’s a way to get close to the action without getting a big it. For interested officials, WFTDA offers annual training clinics and certification.

Referees

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 (NSOs)

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.
