"Roller derby is a contact sport played by two teams of five members roller skating in the same direction around a track. Game play consists of a series of short match ups (jams) in which both teams designate a jammer who scores points by lapping members of the opposing team. The teams attempt to hinder the opposing jammer while assisting their own jammer—in effect, playing both offense and defense simultaneously."

Don't want to skate but love the sport?

We are always looking for Non Skating Officials. NSOs work hard to make sure a game runs smoothly: from score keeping and lineup tracking to penalty timing and so much more.  It's a great way to take part in the sport without ever having to lace up a pair of skates.
