Here is where we need more copy…

Officials

Our officials crew is a major part of making bouts and scrimmages come to life. Join our team of skating and non-skating officials, and you’ll play an important role in bout production, and get an up-close and personal look at derby gameplay, and learn all about this fast growing sport!

Non Skating Officials(NSO): Want to be a part of the game but don’t want to put on skates?! You don’t need to skate to be a Non Skating Official! We are always looking for NSO’s to work scrimmage and bout days! You will get a close look into scorekeeping, working the penalty box, jam timing and much more!
Coaching

With this ever growing sport, we continuously are in search of coaches who are energetic, motivated and excited to help us grow as a league!  If you have experience skating, and have dreamed about leading an inspiring team of skaters to their greatest potential, here’s your chance!

A LITTLE NOTE ABOUT DERBY

If you are considering wanting to become a derby skater, please understand that we do not take our commitment lightly. This league is for the skaters, by the skaters. We have training requirements that all skaters adhere to. We abide by a code of conduct as this is a full contact sport and what happens on the track, stays on the track. IT’S NOT PERSONAL! It’s Derby. Yes, playing the sport is fun, but just like in any full contact sport, injuries occur! You will need to acquire your own quad skates, high-quality knee pads, elbow pads, and wrist guards, helmet and a mouth guard. You are encouraged to sustain your own medical insurance during recruitment. Once you have been through recruitment you will be required to purchase WFTDA insurance.

We hope to see you soon!
